What A FInd!

You first need to know this comes from someone who has followed the Doctor's adventures from the Seventies until today. I especially enjoy the narrator, Nicholas Briggs, as producer of a whole line of audio adventures made and distributed by Big Finish Productions. I may have been a bit predisposed to like this, but I still was amazed at what a find this particular story is.

For me, it was like getting an extra episode of the T.V. series. The story was brilliant. Even though you know the characters are going to make it out, there were at least two... maybe three times when you could have believed they may not. The plot twist that has the Doctor going backward through time was amazingly well done and must have been a very complicated thing to write. The personalities of the characters were all in place. One little gem has the Doctor acquiring a new toy with a "Happy Christmas, me!", which one could totally hear Matt Smith's character saying.

Nicholas Briggs is simply jaw dropping. I cannot fathom how he goes seamlessly from the Doctor to Amy's Scottish accent to the other Americans. It was an inspired performance that married itself to this incredible story to produce a five star wonder that I hope Doctor Who fans will enjoy as much as I did.
