I really enjoyed Grand Theft Cosmos. It's a fairly simple, maybe somewhat familiar caper story - we have competing parties, one of which is the Doctor and Lucie, trying to get their hands on a rare, valuable and strange item. We also sort of get a bit of Great Train Robbery on the side, with a twist of the paranormal thrown in for good measure. And it's delectably set in the late 19th Century. With Paul McGann and Sheridan Smith, as well as a couple of other returning characters, it all adds up to a very tasty combination that I found thoroughly enjoyable.
But I think the most amazing thing about Grand Theft Cosmos is that Sheridan Smith wasn't even present with any of the rest of the cast when she performed her roles. Due to scheduling difficulties, she had to come in and read all her lines on her own (well, with Nick Briggs), which she did in an hour and a half, and then all of her parts were edited into the rest of the audio play in post. It's really amazing, because it all really flows seamlessly.
Funny, interesting, vivid and atmospheric... this being such an enjoyable story, so perfectly produced, and really offering nothing to nitpick about, I must give Grand Theft Cosmos a glowing 10.
Borrow or blend some well known stories add the doctor and some aliens and you have a classic.
