19-year-old Lucie is dumped on The Doc, and they travel to Red Rocket Rising where two sets of Daleks are having a plunger measuring contest.
Quick Update: Badabing! Who Back When has regenerated into a three-man crew. That’s right; JD, aka MariusKane, aka one of the greatest Whovian connaisseurs I’ve ever met, has stepped onboard, and he and I (Ponken) will be taking charge of a second set of Doctor Who reviews. Henceforth, while our TV serial reviews continue, JD and I will also be reviewing the audiobooks, starting with The 8th Doctor Adventures. And here’s the first one.
While The Doc tries to get her back to her native UK of 2006, the universe will not let him. Instead, they’re bounced across space-time to the post-apocalyptic human colony of Red Rock Rising, where not one but two races of Daleks are about to blow a massive load on mankind.
As previously mentioned, this is the first of many Big Finish Doctor Who Audiobooks. Full disclosure: I could have done a better job with this one. Zero note-taking lead to me stepping back a tad, but on the other hand, what a fantastic Whovian we have in JD to have stepped up and delivered, and thus to have made up for my shortcomings! Muchas gracias, JD. Next time, I’ll be more prepared, though. Promise.
