Description

1.1 Technophobia by Matt Fitton

When the Doctor and Donna visit London's Technology Museum for a glimpse into the future, things don't go to plan. The most brilliant IT brain in the country can't use her computer. More worrying, the exhibits are attacking the visitors, while outside, people seem to be losing control of the technology that runs their lives. Is it all down to simple human stupidity, or is something more sinister going on?

Beneath the streets, the Koggnossenti are waiting. For all of London to fall prey to technophobia....

1.2 Time Reaver by Jenny T Colgan

Calibris. The spaceport planet where anything goes. Where anyone who doesn't want to be found can be lost, and where everything has its price. Where betentacled gangster Gully holds sway at the smugglers' tavern, Vagabond's Reach.

The alien Vacintians are trying to impose some order on the chaos. Soon the Doctor and Donna discover why. An illegal weapon is loose on the streets. A weapon that destroys lives... slowly and agonisingly.

The Time Reaver.

1.3 Death and the Queen by James Goss

Donna Noble has never been lucky in love. So when, one day, her Prince does come, she is thrilled to have the wedding of all weddings to look forward to. Though the Doctor isn't holding his breath for an invitation. And her future mother-in-law is certainly not amused. But on the big day itself, Donna finds her castle under siege from the darkest of forces, marching at the head of a skeleton army.

When it looks like even the Doctor can't save the day, what will Queen Donna do to save her people from Death itself?

Directed By: Nicholas Briggs.

Critiques

"Hearing David Tennant and Catherine back together is such a thrill, and fans of the dynamic duo will be celebrating for some time to come.... The Doctor and Donna have never sounded so good. An absolute must." ( Metro)

Great listen for fans of the Doctor and Donna

Any additional comments?

This is audio drama with different actors voicing each character. There is no narration. If you haven't listened to any Big Finish stories before, or you are new to audio dramatization, it may be a bit difficult to follow. But trust me, it's worth it in the end. Hearing Tennant and Tate act together again was a treat. They have such a great dynamic.

There are three separate adventures here. The first is Technophobia. The Doctor and Donna are on Earth a few years into Donna's future when technology starts going haywire. The story has a very simplistic plot (psychic alien invasion 101), and I'm still not sure I understand the resolution. On the other hand, there's sparkling dialogue and the Doctor is in top form. There are bits of amusing satire of our tech-obsessed society sprinkled throughout.

Second, we have Time Reaver, my favourite of the three. The TARDIS team are traveling through the Vortex when the TARDIS malfunctions. They land on an intergalactic travel hub called Calibris in order to get some new fluid links. They find out the planet has become a police state because someone is distributing illegal weapons (outlawed throughout the known universe!) The premise is great, the plot is involved, and the characters are well-realized. The Doctor and Donna are especially true to their original characterization in this story. Marvelous humour as well. I hope you like heart-wrenching endings.

The last story is called Death and the Queen. After landing in the late 1700s, Donna meets a prince from a land that neither she nor the Doctor have ever heard of. Goritainia has supposedly had 500 years of peace, and the Doctor becomes suspicious. Donna, however, is enthralled and agrees to marry the prince. I'm not a fan. For one, Donna's characterization is irritating. She ignores the Doctor through 3/4 of the adventure simply because she sees him as a "gooseberry". Meanwhile, the Doctor wastes a lot of time whining about his companions leaving him. The plot and premise are extremely thin, and the villain sort of hand-wavy.

I expect many people will be rating this 5 stars by virtue of it being the first we've heard from Tennant and Tate in the TARDIS since 2008. I gave it 4 stars, overall. The stories are mostly good, but not good enough to warrant top marks, in my opinion.

One last thing. If you're going for any of the new Tenth Doctor and Donna audios from Big Finish, make sure you get this one! It's the best value, as it has all three stories in one package.

The next best thing to watching the show.

This fully realized radio drama, complete with sound effects and music, is the next best thing to watching the show. More than ever, I feel like 10 and Donna were the best companions. They are simply stellar here and more comfortable with each other than they have ever been. Worth every penny.

The Doctor and Donna Fly Again!

I can't tell you what a joy it is to hear David Tennant and Catherine Tate come back to Doctor Who after all these years, and how relieved I am that the Tenth Doctor and Donna Noble are still as fantastic as they ever were! The entire cast of all three stories does a great job bringing their worlds to life, but it wouldn't work if Tennant and Tate were just phoning it in, which is absolutely not the case here. I would put their work in these stories up there with some of their best acting on the show, especially given they're only using their voices here, but that doesn't hamper their performances one bit. If I were to nitpick performances, some of the alien voices were at times a bit over-modulated and hard to understand for me personally, but I would say it still worked 9 times out of 10. Overall, very impressive work from the cast.

As for the three stories contained in this collection, if you've watched the previous adventures of the Tenth Doctor and Donna Noble, the tone and style of the tales featured here is comfortably similar. These tales are big on emotion and a bit wibbly-wobbly on the actual science, but if you're a big fan of the Russell T Davies era of the Doctor Who revival (and I am, for the most part), then you'll find a lot to enjoy here. There's at least one solid moment to be found in each tale here, and each one has their own unique setting that really helps each tale pop; you'll be surprised how easy it is to get transported into each strange new setting. While no single story blew me away, this collection of three well-told adventures left me very satisfied and eager to check out more Big Finish stories in the future.

Long story short, if you're a fan of Doctor Who -- and especially if you love the Tenth Doctor and Donna Noble flying around and sorting out the universe -- you will not be disappointed with this collection. Top-notch work all around!

Big Fan Already

I loved having new stories to listen to after watching the 10th Doctor a number of times. Donna is my favorite companion as well. I found it a little difficult to follow in the beginning but I got the hang of it fairly quickly. Highly recommend.
