Superb acting, eerie noises and an effective feeling of claustrophobia contribute to making this a triumph for Big Finish. Well done Trevor Baxendale, who has succeeded in creating convincing characters in a terrifying situation with a palpable sense of danger around the corner.
I think for most the plot and location is nothing new. However if the result is good why nock it too much. Lots of running about, plenty of dialog but all comes together well.

Advice to all: If you come to Something Inside expecting a cool alternative take on the movie, Cube, you will be disappointed. Well, you'll probably be disappointed no matter what, though it didn't seem that the other two reviewers were.
If you've seen the film, Cube, aside from the visual conceptualization of the Cube itself, which itself is enough to attract the viewer's attention, what are the main draws of the movie? The puzzle of figuring out which rooms were booby-trapped and the diabolical variety of the types of booby-traps, yes? Well, take away all of the above characteristics, put basically nothing in their place, and you have Something Inside. Oh, I'm forgetting... yes, the "brain worm," of course. Oh no! It's the brain worm! Not the brain worm! How many times can you hear "brain worm" before becoming really irritated? Listen to Something Inside and you'll find out.
That's pretty much it. Throw in a couple of psychotic characters and a couple of exploded heads and you've just about got the gist of Something Inside. Even McGann's presence could barely save this one.

Why is the big finish range so good? Evenw riters who have written before just keep on churning out tale after tale packed with new ideas and fresh plots with neat little twists and great acting. The big finish team always seem to know who to get to write a certain kind of tale. For chilling you get Rob Shearman, for character pieces you get Joe Lidster, for history you get Steve Lyons, and for big things of the mind you get Trev Baxendale. And this has to be one of the best stories of his in the entire universe.
This story really actually does feel claustrophobic and cramped in a little confined space with not much hope of escape for once. A little remiscent of The Last, but with no direct and copied links at all. The Brain worm sounds flipping cool and fresh too i can tell yer. And Paul McGann is particularly great with this acting in this one i can tell yer. And India Fisher is great as ever as the cool Charley. And all the supporting acts are pretty good in all. SO this happens to be another great story from a great company. They dont know when or even how to stop churning out brilliant stories that make the new tv series pale into insignificance.

Big, gaping holes in plausibility. So, Doctor and crew arrive inside a prison for former soldiers with augmented psychic powers. Having served their purpose, the psychs are simply rounded up and stuck inside "The Cube" because they now pose a supposed threat to society. Interesting enough idea. Added to this, The Cube is run by two people - Rawden, the man who "made" the psychs, and his pet torturer Mr. Twyst. If you thought that the allegory of those names is more obvious than the presence of air, you would not be wrong. Rawden is a very worried man because something inside The Cube is killing off the psychs, and he doesn't know what it is. If something is killing the psychs and it isn't him, he wants to know. Here are a few of the gaping holes. First, this prison is run by just two, that's right, two people. Where is the staff? The Cube has levels, so certainly should house more than just the four psychs we run across. Where are the canteen and toilet facilities? We are led to believe that Rawden made the psychs, but he is technological ignoramus, so how did he do it? The Brain Worm that eats people's minds and leaves gaping holes in The Doctor's memories seems to have taken a few bites out of the plot of this.
