Volume 8 is a cracking volume.

Only listened to it once so far, but in particular, "President" and "Spoils" are great tales, with the latter really pushing the boundaries in terms of scope of what is possible within a single Liberator Chronicle.

Looking forward to it Happy
Reversing the polarity of the neutron flow. I bet that means something. It sounds great.

Generally I can tell if i will like it or love it depending on the writer, but thats from having heard so many. I know this isn't the same thing SD, but you can look up reviews for a story upon release.


The only reviews I find helpful are the ones in Dr Who magazine and then only up to a point, as its so hard to find a simple honest review of anything online*. People are often 'love bfp' and just say everything is great or 'hate bfp' and say everything is awful, but very few of them actually describe the drama. Good and bad is subjective, and what I wanted to know was about the sub-genre of the story and the production style; so many of Big Finish's DW audios rush around at 100mph and/or resolve everything in the last episode with a fight against a monster. The audio I was interested in looked like a pure historical with time travel the only fantasy element and no monsters and no big battle at the end, but you have no idea how closely guarded a secret those simple facts were; and that was on old release that I had missed about a year before, so there was no 'spoiler' issues involved.

But yes, like you I can generally choose by the cast and creative after listening to about 200+ of their dramas! Grin

edit: excluding here of course, but reviews of Dr Who merchandise elsewhere are very hit and miss.


I don't read DWM, not into reading about the new show, so I can't comment on how they review things. However I haven't found a bias for BFP or against BFP or either heard of one other than my own, which is BFP have made the best Doctor Who from 2005- Now.

Confrontation or lack thereof at the end would constitute a spoiler. Could it simply be you want too much information?

Check out Doc Oho's reviews. He's passionate about everything WHO, be it the new show, the old show, the books or BFP. I don't always agree, but his reviews are fair. He'll also mention a stories tone and audio landscape etc etc. The reviews do contain spoilers though.

It was an old title, that had been out for months. And 'is it a historical or does it involve aliens?' is hardly a plot spoiler when the person asking has said they are looking specifically to buy a pure-historical story.

I really liked "Spoils", but it could well be a marmite release - one that people have strong opinions either way. It's certainly bold.

Will be interested in what others make of it. Cool

Got my fingers crossed that we have more James Goss tales to come....

Sea of Iron and Spoils will be listened to tomorrow.
