I’m a big fan of Big Finish, and only very rarely do they drop their standards, and even when that does happen it’s only dropping a little bit. In fact, on the whole the standard is so high any drop is really noticeable. However, on this occasion I have to confess I’m almost at a loss for words.
I’ve been enjoying Big Finish’s Torchwood output since they started with season one, and so I bought this episode on good faith. But all I can say about it is that it is so far beneath their normal standard that I almost can’t believe that they made it at all. I also can’t fathom out why they’d want to make this story. It has none of the regular characters in it, it’s set somewhere completely different, and it shows none of the characteristic Torchwood elements to it.
I can’t begin to understand why Big Finish made this. I just hope that it’s a blip. If it isn’t then that’s a real problem.
Suzi’s back again then! They don’t seem to be able to stop themselves from bringing her back. When I started listening to this story I thought it might be a little dull, but it was a good one in the end. Even a little dark.
And I think it probably has to be one of the best episodes of the audio series so far. It was really funny, well written and a great little story which kept me happy for an hour. I hope they do a few more like this, specifically with Andy as well, as he’s a great character and really does lighten the mood.
I have to say that I wasn’t looking forward to this story. It just didn’t appeal to me at all. However, I got it, and listened to it yesterday, and I have to say that I was really impressed. It was a great story. A real caper! I enjoyed the whole thing and I’d say that it’s probably one of the best since Big Finish started this series of Torchwood audios.
