Oh No, The Doctor's Fault Again?

I am tired, tired, tired of "it's the Doctor's fault." Why does Big Finish continue to revive this stinking corpse like it is some brilliant new idea that nobody has had before? Oh, yes, well, this time the Doctor does not know it is his fault. Big irony, wow, hooray, must be a new idea. Sorry, but that just undercuts any other quality that the production may have as far as I am concerned. To its credit, the unconventional flashback structure keeps a listener focused. Additionally, the evil aliens turn out not to be evil - now that works as it did for David Whitaker. It fits well with the whole theme of perspective in the story. What is ugly? What is beautiful? What is the difference between legal and ethical? These are worthy ideas worked through quite nicely. If it weren't for that ending...

Yes, the doctor is the one who caused it, but this time he doesnt realise it. Every other time he has noticed it, so thats the end of that little squabble of it forever being the doc's fault. no one is flipping perfect anyway for goodness sake! This is for the best part a great and original fresh new aproach to telling a story, back to front really...but flaming good stuff with solid performances from everyone involved. the opening scenes are actually loud and flipping scary too. well acted indeed.
