May as well post a review here for it

1/8

I'll start with a quick summary of the whole box set, because I know there were a lot of people wondering about this release. The box set, in my opinion, is quite good. Carried by four excellent cast members (Ian McNeice, Emily Atack, Danny Horn, and Holly Earl) and with some excellent scripts, I found the box set very enjoyable for the most part. The ending falls a little flat in my book, but it's not enough to deter me from highly recommending it. Overall, I'd give the whole box set a 8.75/10.

The Oncoming Storm
Now onto part one. The first story is a 9th Doctor story, where soldiers with bizarre voices and mannerisms are skulking around London, asking about a mysterious stone that fell to Earth recently.

The story was "fantastic", as the Doctor of the story would say. The story as a whole was very indicative of the 9th Doctor's era. There's a lot of guilt about the Time War and his role in it. I truly appreciated how it wasn't the 9th Doctor trying to stop an alien menace from destroying Earth, but the 9th Doctor attempting to save another race from destruction. That fact alone elevated my rating of the story.

The two main players of this box set are Winston Churchill (Ian McNeice) and Hetty Warner (Emily Atack). Both bounce off each other fabulously, with Atack proving she can hold her own with McNeice. I think I was most surprised at how much I liked Hetty Warner; she's this tough girl that doesn't take any nonsense from people with a big brain and heart to boot. Of course, Ian McNeice isn't anything to scoff at either. While he sounds a bit older than he did in his televised appearances, he still commands each scene.

2/8
I particularly enjoyed how the script flitted between humor and seriousness. On the humorous side, I particularly enjoyed Churchill's dialogue in his first scene:

(in his head) "I was awaiting Ms. Warner with all the calm patience for which I'm am renowned."
(out loud) "MISS WAAARRRRNNNEEERRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!"

Phil Mulryne certainly captured the tone of the 9th Doctor with his script, the quick shifts between the comedic and dramatic elements of his personality. It pervades into the story as a whole, making for some excellent listening.

I honestly struggle to find any significant faults with this opening episode. I'm sure others will disagree, but I think Big Finish did an excellent job with the opening episode. 10/10

Hounded

The second part, a 10th Doctor story, takes a more serious tone than the first part. Churchill feels there is a darkness plaguing his mind, which he calls "The Black Dog". His secretary, Hetty Warner, takes it upon herself to call the Doctor, only when he arrives, he's arrested on suspicion of being a Nazi spy.

I wasn't as impressed with the second part as I was with the first part. My main gripe is that the ending is, unfortunately, a lot like the terrible ending of Last of the Time Lords, in which the Doctor overpowers the enemy with no explanation. However, the ending can't change the fact that the second story is still very good, just maybe not as good as the first part.
>>
>>64905917
>>64908011
>>64908040

3/8

Again, McNeice and Atack command each scene they're in. I was glad that Atack got an excellent sending off, sacrificing herself to "The Black Dog" so Churchill would feel some terrible feelings, but I'm extremely sad she won't be around for the rest of the box set. I'm hoping that she pops up in some future box sets as well. McNeice does a much better job of conveying the 10th Doctor's personality in scenes where he narrates for the 10th Doctor. I also quite enjoyed Jo Stone-Fewing's Major Wheatley, the latest in Big Finish's long line of asshole military commanders. I'm a sucker for those kind of roles, especially when they quickly get their comeuppance.

The script, save for the ending, was, again, very good. Alan Barnes did a good job of capturing the "nothing flaps me" attitude of the 10th Doctor, especially when he's being arrested or when he's trying to escape to his "TARDIS". While it took a more serious tone, there was still some room for some quirky, funny dialouge.

My main gripe with this story was the ending. It was a bit too stereotypical 10th Doctor endings, where the Doctor saves the day due to some deus ex machina situation. In this case, it's being the one with the most pain in their past. It sort of cheapened Hetty's death by making it so Churchill couldn't even muster up enough dark feelings to create a mental projection.

So while I felt the ending cheated Hetty out of the death she deserved, that wasn't enough to stop it from being a solid second story for the box set. 8/10

Living History

The third story of the box set, an 11th Doctor story, runs like a Doctor-lite Dalek story. Apart from the very beginning and end, the Doctor is not present at all in the story. Instead Churchill and Kazran Sardick (Danny Horn, A Christmas Carol) are trapped in 55 B.C. Britain, on opposing sides of a war between Julius Caesar and Queen Tristahna of the Britons. I quite enjoyed this story; I thought it benefited from the Doctor-lite aspect of the story and from an excellent plot.

As always, Ian McNeice is fantastic in this story, I'll leave it at that. As for the newcomers of this story, we have Danny Horn returning as a young Kazran first. He doesn't miss a beat here, stepping right back into the role of Kazran. The other day, I watched A Christmas Carol among other stories to prepare for this box set, and I can say that he is almost identical to how he was in the show. At most, he's a bit happier than he was in the show. There are a few references to that story, but for the most part he takes the place of the Doctor to Churchill as the companion out of time. I quite liked the touch at the end of him meeting his idol, who turned out to be Churchill. It was a sweet moment in the box set.

The other two newcomers were Alistair Petrie and Laura Rogers as Caesar and Queen Tristahna, respectively. Petrie did an excellent job playing the ruler of the Roman Empire as a smart leader. His scenes with McNeice were a highlight, as these two world leaders bounced off each other well. Rogers was similarly good as Tristahna. I was quite impressed with how she switched from reverence to fear of the Bronze God at the drop of the penny. It was a wonderful touch to show how terrible the Daleks really are to someone who has witnessed them first hand, and not seen them defeated.

5/8

Something I haven't talked about much in this story is the ambient soundtrack. I saved it for this story, the reason for which I'll get to in a minute, but I've been extremely impressed with Big Finish's soundscapes as a whole. However, this one really did an excellent job. It was noticeable how well the soundscape was for the entire story.

The script was another excellent script by Justin Richards. My favorite scene of the story, and possibly the box set, was the scene when Tristahna is leading Churchill and Kazran to the Bronze God. If you listen, there's no soundscape until the Dalek rolls down the ramp to greet Tristahna and the prisoners. It's a wonderfully creepy scene; even though I knew it was coming, it was wonderfully (or the lack thereof) scored and directed. I think the script also benefited from not having so many asides by McNeice as he narrated for the Doctor. It was a simple story with minimal narration, unlike the other three parts.

Overall, like the first part, I struggle to find any issues with this part. Another excellent story. 10/10

The Chartwell Metamorphosis

The final story, another 11th Doctor story, takes a different tact than all the other stories. This story features a retired Churchill being cared for by Lily Arwell (Holly Earl, The Doctor, The Widow, and The Wardrobe) while mutated butterfly-human hybrids seek to kill Churchill.

6/8 (actually 6/6, this took less posts than I thought)

I'm largely unfamiliar with Churchill's life after World War II, so maybe there's some significance to the final part with Churchill turning evil, but I didn't catch it, so I didn't enjoy the story as much on first listen. I didn't like the choice to have Churchill, desperate to keep on living, research ways to create mutant human-butterfly hybrids. While it was an interesting story, I think that the fact that Churchill would stoop to do something so contrary to what the Doctor would approve of to be very uncharacteristic of the Churchill of this box set. Please someone correct me if I'm wrong on something here.

As always, McNeice, though given (in my opinion) a mediocre script, does an excellent job here. Earl does a good job as Lily Arwell. I never much cared for The Doctor, The Widow, and The Wardrobe, but she does a better job here than she did there, which is due in no small part to her growing up a bit since then. Carolyn Seymour and John Banks do an excellent job in here, as they always do with their various roles.

The beginning of the script was a bit of a messy affair. Up until Lily tries to send for the Doctor, I found the script to be wildly out of character for Churchill so far. I find it hard to believe that he would have gone and done something to prolong his life that would cause harm to other people. However, once Mrs. Whitaker comes out of her cocoon hungry for Churchill and the rest of humanity, the script fares much better. I enjoyed the ending more than I did for Hounded.

Again, barring someone correcting me, I thought the ending was the weakest link. While it had a lot of good in it, I thought that for once, the bad was able to outweigh a lot of the good. 7/10

Overall: The Churchill Years, Volume 01: 8.75/10

I was just speaking personally from what I watched it came off more childish than Who. It was specifically made to appeal to children, but that doesn't inherently make it bad. From what I watched it wasn't bad, but it just wasn't something I would normally watch had it not had the connection to Doctor Who. The fact it was made for a different audience is just something to keep in mind when watching it.

Reverting to actual discussion for a second, what did /who/ think of the latest VNA adaptations? Personally loved All-Consuming Fire, it's a great novel to begin with but the audio is right up there alongside Damaged Goods. Theatre of War slightly less, but still good - and it's always nice to have Brax back. Sylv is solid in both, he seemed to be having a good time and played things slightly lighter than he has recently.

It might have been cool if Grant played the war doctor but dunno if he would have given a good performance. I remember him being kind of bland as the GI.
>>
>>64918830

The Unbound Series from Big Finish is a collection of about 8 stand alone audios which feature a "what if...?" idea.

What if the Doctor never left Gallifrey?
What if the Doctor wasn't UNIT's scientific advisor?
What if the Valeyard won?

Those sorts of things. I'd class Scream of the Shalka as "what if the Time War didn't happen?"
>>
>>64918830
>I seriously need to start with the Big Finish audios too?
That made it sound like I didn't enjoy the thought of starting with Big Finish audios, I've been meaning to for ages and I can't get enough of The Doctor but still.

It's just, I found out about Doctor Who with 11, and have watched all I can in that time, but having kids and so on makes it kind of hard to get through all there is but at least I've watched some serials recommended but as as I said earlier, I'm getting them all this time and then I guess I'll be binge-watching Classic Who and listening to Big Finish while being outside.

Oh shit, I absolutely love "what if..." stuff, this is gonna be great. Now it's time to find a good way to get all Big Finish in correct order and start listening!
>>
As has anyone listened to the female doctor unbound audio? Is it true the audio gets ruined with bad fart jokes?
>>
>>64918901

Due to really really bad timing for the webcast, he was never officially the ninth Doctor.

They made it thinking that he would be, and then two months before it aired on the BBC website, Russell T Davies said he was bringing back Doctor Who with Christopher Eccleston as the Ninth Doctor.

It's an interesting thought though. What if RTD never brought back Doctor Who and all we had to go on were Paul McGann Big Finish audios and Richard E Grant webcasts for our 'new' Doctor Who.

Hope its not Hell Bent. It can only be considered pasdable if you remove absolutely all context from it relating to the Doctor, every companion, the Time Lords, his home planet, Steven Moffat, Heaven Sent, and practically all of the lore

the Main Range looks to be getting better, at least, apparently people loved You Are the Doctor (it's a choose-your-own-adventure audio, where you skip to different tracks) and they have the Two Masters trilogy coming up with Beevers + MacQueen

*passable

It elevates clara over every other companion, contradicts all his trauma of losing his home and being last of the time lords, depowers the time lords and rassalon, makes the doctor seem like some evil man needing a companion to reign him in, and feels like Moffat just makung his two OC's just get everything.

>>64919169
They did a soft reboot of the main range with #201, and since then the quality seems to have come back up.

If you are about to watch Classic Who from the start, it might be a nice idea to start listening to the Lost Stories as you do it.
http://tardis.wikia.com/wiki/The_Lost_Stories
They're unproduced TV stories which were remade on audio, so you could listen to them during the era in which they were meant to be broadcast.

Pete wasn't "fairly plain", he was the prototype of fun dad. Please watch Father's Day.

The only two variations from the RTD Model were Jackie eventually growing out of the bitchy phase and Wilf being Donna's grandad instead of her dead (and his character was originally going to be the dad, wasn't it for the actor's untimely departure).

I haven't listened to a Big Finish production before but I'm noticing 3 characters whose voice talents aren't mentioned here.

Is The Doctor voiced by a trumpet like in Peanuts cartoons?
>>
>>64928863
He's voiced by the narrator, AKA Churchill.
>>
>>64928909
> he's voiced by a crumbling pensioner

jolly good then

>>64928909
But who voices Churchill.
>>
>>64929927
The same guy from Victory of the Daleks and Wedding of River Song

Oh, I never watched those episodes.

>>64930015
You lucky, lucky bastard

>>64930049
Really? I heard good things about him. Are the audios just as bad? He doesn't seem like that bad of a character.
>>
>>64930315
He's talking about the episodes he was in, not the character
>>
>>64930315
He isn't bad, and the audios aren't either.
It's just that those two particular episodes happen to be the worst Dalek story and the worst finale of the Smith era.
>>
>>64930510
>worst Dalek story
Worse than Human Daleks?
>>
>>64930695
He said of the Smith era m8
>>
>>64930827
Sorry, I assumed the "Smith era" bit was only tied to the finale one.
>>
>>64926269
Last of the Cybermen wasn't so bad. The other two have been Nicholas Briggs, so you should've expected it.

Why would someone waste their time making something so blatantly fake? It's note even slightly believable.
>>
>>64931814
>It's note even slightly believable.
I disagree, that note isn't believable at all.
>>
>>64921523
>Seems especially weird since they've already used him in audio form in Diogenes Damsel.
He said he never met Benny beofre in "Damsel"
>>
>>64921523
Also in The Judgement of Sherlock Holmes and The Worlds of Big Finish
>>
>>64932395
He didn't. He met the Doctor in All-Consuming Fire, but Benny was in India at the time.
>>
>>64932483
Same reasoning. Compressed adaptation. Some stuff must be cut/changed.

I wonder what that 3 CD mystery release will turn out to be. Lungbarrow?
>>
>>64932661
That or Cold Fusion, probably.
>>
>>64932661
I think one of us has misunderstood. Mycroft met the Doctor but not Benny in All-Consuming Fire (the novel), which is what he's referencing in The Adventure of the Diogenes Damsel.
>>
>>64932936
I remember that he was talking about the book, not sure the Doctor was involved with him at all in DD's references.

Alright /who/ what's happening?

Have been on for a few months beause Pikeys stole my areas Internet cable.

What did you guys think of the last series? I really wasn't a fan, I'd guessed Arya was the Hybrid and was hoping they'd do something a little more interesting than your standard Moffat twisty-twist bullshit, wasn't a huge fan of her acting either, but that's kinda because she can't fucking act (have you seen GOT?)

Oh and what the hell was going on with the two-parters? Very fucking random and added nothing in my opinion.

River Song... Well just shit, although the ending leading into Silence in the Library marginally made her return more bearable.

Capaldi was as always great, carrying the episodes when everything else was lacking.

Clara's finally gone, thank fuck, she was done.

Moffats done too I think, but he's going to claw himself on for one more series with some dumb arc. I honestly think he'd be better now if he wrote no episodes or the season arc. He could just be a constant on set and make sure the style and theme of the series was consistent where it needed to be.

Now let the jeers of just how wrong I am begin.

>Is Immigrant still alive?
Sort of. He left for awhile and then came back and kind of posts every so often but not regularly.

Did you like S9?
>>
>>64936992
Not even a good copy
>>
>>64937442
It was alright. The two parter thing was something I'd wanted for a while but I'm not sure it mattered.

It was def better than S8, but I don't think any of the stories stand out all that much to me. The last 3 episodes were great and Capaldi was amazing throughout, but I was kinda numb to everything to be honest.

Just finished watching Season 1-4 of the new Doctor Who. Started late with 5-now but finally got around to watching it.

Some questions I have. You guys don't have to answer all of them.

>Whatever happened to the qt clone daughter of the doctor? The universe just ignored a girl capable of regeneration?

>Does Donna have a black fetish?

>All this talk about hybrids this season and how impossible and new they are and I saw a Dalek/human hybrid, and a time lord/human hybrid. This isn't a question, just wtf.

>Why did Rose and her mom have to go back to the parallel universe? Mickey got to leave.

>How did the Master become a sith lord with force lightning?

>What was the best episode?
>>
>>64937942
>Whatever happened to the qt clone daughter of the doctor? The universe just ignored a girl capable of regeneration?
None of the writers want to use her I guess. To be fair the episode was kind of lame.


>Does Donna have a black fetish?
Yes


>>All this talk about hybrids this season and how impossible and new they are and I saw a Dalek/human hybrid, and a time lord/human hybrid. This isn't a question, just wtf.

IIRC Dalek didn't like the human hybrid thing or something? I haven't seen that episode in years though.

>Why did Rose and her mom have to go back to the parallel universe? Mickey got to leave.
Plot. RTD wanted Rose to have the clone doctor.

>How did the Master become a sith lord with force lightning?
Because of the resurrection or something. It was rather stupid and another unnecessary addition like the drums.

>What was the best episode?
Empty Child/Doctor Dances imo.
>>
>>64938104

I liked that episode. I thought the fish aliens were pretty cool. And the clone girl was super cute. She actually married Tennant in real life.
>>
>>64938176
Fair Enough. Everyone is allowed their opinions.
>>
>>64938104

Good choices for episodes.

I would probably go with The Girl in the Fireplace. That robot design was just beautiful. And the Madame was the best girl introduced in the entire series.

Oh, and Human Nature is also pretty good mostly because the main villain did a really good job acting. As a whole it was probably the best acted episode I seen in that run.

And is it agreed that season 2 is the best season? I'm looking through the episode list and the evil television alien is the only bad episode I see.
>>
>>64938347
Series 2 is pretty much the worst Tennant series, and the second worst series aside from 7.
I'd add "New Earth" and "Fear Her" to the pile of episodes that are outright bad, and really the best that series got was "eh pretty good".
>>
>>64937514
I consider S9 waaaaay worse than S8, but that's differing opinions for you. The last 3 eps were great, maybe my new favorites. I thought it was at its best when it was pushing against the "2-parter" format, such as the initial Maisie Williams episodes and of course the finale episodes.

What is the best episode of Doctor Who of all time, and why is it Hell Bent?
>>
>The Churchill Years
>The Diary of River Song
>The new UNIT audios
>The War Doctor audios

How does /who/ feel now that NuWho is confirmed canon?
>>
>>64939623
Canon is irrelevant, punk fool
>>
2-parter thing felt misguided to me.

Moffat was obviously trying to recapture a bit of Classic Who with more in-depth storytelling by bringing back a variant of the serial format.

Thing is, television writing has changed so much since its shift into the hour-long semi-cinematic format. It doesn't feel the same at all, and it's not really compatible. Pacing is completely different, and as such two-parters can mess with a story's momentum. NuWho made a shift into modernity and trying to bridge he gap with two-parters just doesn't work.

Keep them to finales and premieres, and the occasional story that deserves it. A series worth of them just felt forced and none of the stories truly benefited from the expanded length.
>>
>>64939788
I can't picture the Zygon story or the opener working in one part.
I guess maybe the opener could work if you removed Missy and Clara.
>>
>>64937942
>>Why did Rose and her mom have to go back to the parallel universe? Mickey got to leave.

Cause Jackie's made a life with Pete and has a kid and they're rich as fuck over there with more advanced technology so either Rose stays or drags everyone, cause Jackie's not just gonna lose her daughter, back with her to her original universe.

>How did the Master become a sith lord with force lightning?

I assume that since he was brought wrong and something about his body being ripped open, that he could channel his own body's energy however he wanted, which was presumably cooler to show as electricity than regeneration energy.
>>
>>64939788
I agree. The story should inform the length not the other way round.
>>
So Clara will be back next series for sure right? No way that was the ending
>>
>>64940748
She'll be back for the Doctor's regeneration
