Re: Best Audio Book?

Finally got round to Gallifrey Series 5.

Best bit of the run was the last 2 minutes.

Re: Best Audio Book?

That's odd, they shouldn't do that until dark Eyes II is almost upon us, but I heard that that had been delayed well into next year.

Re: Best Audio Book?

Listened to The Stones of Venice today, and I can say for certain, that it's the first Big Finish audio I've heard that I found to be absolutely stupid. Mind-numbingly awful and utterly inane. And if people seem to think Minuet In Hell is even worse, I can't wait to get to that gem... Ugh.

Re: Best Audio Book?

Finished the Companions Chronicle A Town Called Fortune. I'm not particularly fond of Westerns in general, so, the fact I enjoyed this is quite the testament to the writing and Maggie Stables/Evelyn.

Finished The Crime of Thomas Brewster. Nice little mystery in this one, and previously I had listened to The Companion Chronicle The Three Companions and been totally confused by Thomas Brewster in it. This story gave me a little context on him.

Only Feast of Axos and Industrial Evolution left, and in the Special Features of The Crimes of Thomas Brewster they kept referring to it as a Trilogy, so, I assume Thomas Brewster will be in those two as well.

Re: Best Audio Book?

Finished up the Evelyn Smythes. The Feast of Axos was an excellent follow up/sequel to The Claws of Axos Pertwee Story. Thomas Brewster is a Good character, not your typical Companion.

Industrial Evolution I enjoyed, the Adversary was quite creepy and sort of a twist on Cybermen in a way, though they could have explained where it came from a bit better. Bellfrage was a pretty cool character, and I'd be interested in listening to an audio with him where Industrial Evolution left off.

I liked quite a few of her stories, but, Jubilee I think was the best, it's one of the absolute top BF Doctor Who Audio Plays I've listened to.

So, I'm off to listen to some Pern for at least a book or two (Probably wait until Gallifrey is released before returning to The Doctor Whoniverse), when I'll listen to Gallifrey, Dalek Empire 1, My subscription Main lines that have built up by then (2 so far), and the First 50 for $2.99 that I've recently bought (7 so far) and may buy before then.

I know she's retired but I really want to do just one audio play. Companion Chronicles are retiring but they will be replaced by Early Adventures. I can only hope she can be convinced...
I doubt it. She hasn't even done any DVD interviews, IIRC.

Kind of, but without K9. Not sure why, but he'd broken down and been placed in a box in the attic...
Did we ever find out what happened to Sarah Jane's nephew/ward/whoever that kid was from "A Girl's Best Friend"?

Who is the fat man she can cling to and feed diet shakes in/on Gallifrey?
Commander Maxil?

Yeah, I know, although she still does the conventions.

It turns out when she laid down for her nap, Ben and Polly Tied her up and left her in a warehouse, and then lied to the Doctor saying "Oh, Dodo says she's happy here, and she's staying, so she told us to say goodbye for her and take her place". And then of course, The Doctor just took this at face value and abandoned her, so, yea, she's a little bitter and not about to set foot in that TARDIS again, Lord knows where he might abandon her the next time

I don't think Lane does many conventions, for the same reason she isn't on the DVDs-- she doesn't want to spend a lot of time going over and over her brief involvement with Doctor Who. She did a long interview in the Myth Makers series, and appears at occasional events, but she's not really active on the convention circuit in the way many actors are.

Re: Best Audio Book?

I get that. Although, it would be nice if they'd at least gotten her on record on that "End of the Line" documentary about Hartnell's final season on "The Gunfighters."

Re: Best Audio Book?

Finally finished the Last Thomas Covenant Book and, so, back to The Whoniverse.

Listened to Gallifrey Series 6, and loved it. Lots of Timey-Wimeyness and Temporal Techno-Babble (Lala Ward is fantastic with reciting Techno-babble). I especially loved Narvin's idea at the end, and then Romana's Revelation of what she did. A very fitting end to the Series, IMHO. Listening to the Behind the Scenes disk now, and then on to a group of about 10 of the First 50, and then the last 5 or 6 Main Range releases from my Subscription.

The December Main Range (that gives you Trial Of The Valleyard as a bonus, if your subscription includes December) is released. Anyone know when Trial of The Valleyard will be available for download, since it's Requirement release is out?

It's out now, it's just listed as bonus content on Afterlife.

Jackie Lane does the occasional signing but doesn't do conventions.
