Flip-Flop has it's Ups-n-Downs

What an interesting concept. Two CDs four episodes, where either CD can be played first. It makes the story very intersting. The dowside is that once you listen to one CD you know how the other CD is going to be, since it has to lead back to the first CD.

All in all, it's an interesting story that should be listened to twice (one way than the other), but not one of CDs that should be played more than a few times.

More flop than flip

I was amazed at the idea behind this one, listen to either CD first it won't matter. But once you have listened to one the other one comes across as dull.

The other point is I can't believe that any race would be so weak as to let slugs "walk" all over them.

Sorry good idea, with another strong mel but simply a little dull.

Good Concept

Jonathan Morris has pulled off a very difficult feat in creating a convincingly circular story. Whichever Part Three one chooses (white disc part one or black disc part one), one starts listening for all the cues about the effects from the Doctor and Mel on the other disc. The concept is marvellous. On the other hand, the human colonists just do not grab my interest; they are weak, wimpy, selfish, and annoying. I understand Morris's attmept to satirize political correctness, but it is not a wholly convincing satire. There are some realism glitches, too. The two pairs of Stewart and Reed would not look so identical that no one can tell them apart. Having grown up in different circumstances and taken on different social roles (soldiers in one, rebels in another) they would be wearing different clothes, have different hair styles, probably even have differing manners and deportments.

Flip Flop only has its ups...

This is such a clever outing for big finish. You can listen to the black or white dic first, now isnt that clever? Well, i think its clever. Its all about a time loop you see. The poor old doc and mel get themselves into trouble on the planet Puxatornee, what with the sluggy slithergees and the radicals intent on changing their own history. Personally i listen to the black disc first, but thats just my preference. Either way, you get a witty and engaging little tale from Jonathan Morris, none of the let downs of Bloodtide are present in this outtake. This is just a cool and different tale that shows how great the big finish doctor who scene is...
