Oh 7, with his crazy plans that sometimes horribly backfire..... There are some good stories out of "the Doctor screws up badly" or "makes a huge moral mistake", but taking Klein as a companion still seems like a bad idea.


UNIT Dominion is on spotify - can you follow that standalone, or are there other UNIT audios you have to listen to?

UNIT: Dominion is standalone and excellent. Of course, the big twist is better-known now, but it *got* me when it was new.

100%. Go in as blind as you can, although that is difficult these days.

Dominion was what really turned on my love for Big Finish and sent me all the way down the rabbit hole.

I always have a great time watching Time Flight because my brain just goes into full Airplane! mode.

I'm sure I remember a youtube video that edited the two together but I can't find it now.

Doesn't Timeflight have the Master in disguise for literally no reason other than "its a two parter and we need a cliffhanger". Listening to UNIT Dominion now on Spotify, and yep, its really good.

It's a 4 parter. He spends 2 episodes in the disguise, including when no-one is around, the reveal is the end of ep 2.

The end of ep 3 is the Doctor going "well the master's won we can't do anything about it, sux to be us" based on absolutely nothing

I quite enjoyed UNIT: Dominon. I was able to follow Klein's plot fine, Alexander McQueen was wonderful, and it felt like a big story in scope, without getting away from the point. The only thing that's odd is what was the point of Ace's appearance? She has a cameo which has no effect on the story?

They smelled of pubs, and Wormwood Scrubs, and too many right-wing meetings.

So I twatted them with a magic yo-yo. Because, hell, why not?

It was one of Farmergeddon's impressive mash-up videos, but unfortunately they seem to have disappeared from YouTube. (The only one I found was part 1 of his Five Doctors pisstake.) I've got it saved somewhere, but no idea exactly where.

Edit: oh hey, Google knows all!

Just finished The Two Masters, and I didn't enjoy it as much as Vampire of the Mind. Beevers Master and MacQueen Master bickering was fun, but MacQueen didn't feel like he was as well used as in other stories. The Doctor hardly felt like he needed to show up: the explanation for the Doctor getting out of the third episode cliffhanger was so convoluted that it was baffling. It's obviously a very Master-centric story, but it feels like the Doctor is just sort of there to stop the Master so the story can finish.

Though for three stories for a tenner, I feel like I got my moneys worth out of this trilogy. No behind the scenes bit in this one, which is odd, because And You Will Obey Me and Vampire of the Mind did? Oh well, never mind.

I think they were filming a few weeks ago, so probably later this year, but its not been announced yet, iirc.

There was actually a Firth Doctor audio where they were invaded by toy Daleks. "Renaissance of the Daleks".

After finding a broken Dalek in a lay-by, the Sixth Doctor is stuck watching a disarmed and disorientated Dalek until UNIT forces can get out of a local traffic jam and dispose of it. However, their debate is interrupted by a Dalek reclamation squad looking to strip the broken Dalek for parts.

Coming soon: RECYCLING OF THE DALEKS

Yes, I was joking. I do have Renaissance on CD somewhere, I remember not being that wowed by it, but finding it ok.

I know delays are unavoidable with COVID, but the fact that Time Lord Victorious still isn't all released over despite the story wrapping up months ago gives the event a very strange stop and start-y momentum.

The Big Finish Book Club this month is The Nightmare Fare. I picked it up because hey, 2.99.
