Been there

Yes yet again the 6th Doctor has been there before, a common thing about this doctor, somethings a little overdone.

However this is a very good story nice to think that the Doctor has to sort out some of his mistakes and dosen't get everything right.

Colin Baker Gets To Be Bad Again

This story I found better the second time I listened to it, but it still has many problems. The idea that the Doctor must be evil incarnate to someone is fine. The choice of Doctor for this role is also good, since before Doctor Who Colin Baker was known for his baddies on TV. The problems with it are these: 1. Why does he not just tell Evelyn what he is up to rather than stringing her along? It is not as though she is one of the kids the Doctor usually travels with. She is more than capable of handling the moral ambiguity. 2. The memory egg idea needs more work. Even the slightest knowledge of genetics reveals the silliness of the idea. 3. It is a small world - everyone keeps conveniently running into everyone else (this is known as lazy writing). Still, the production is worth listening to; one gets to hear why Colin Baker works so well asa bad guy.

The worst big finish tale in the world

Just didnt get along with this dire story at all. Listen to it again only to hear Colin being great as the so called sandman. Evelyn gets nothing to do. Even the galyari dont save this story at all. And the final defeat of the real sandman with birds is pretty stupid. Sorry, didnt get on with this story at all. The weakest big finish story ive heard i think.
