Big Finish - The Four Doctors

Every year Big Finish produce a special bonus CD as an exclusive reward for their subscribers. The 2011 Christmas bonus was The Five Companions which I have already reviewed. I have just extended my subscription for another year and got a free CD as a result so was able to get the 2010 CD The Four Doctors.

Written by Peter Anghelides and starring Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy, Paul McGann and Nicholas Briggs as the Daleks. There is something irresistible about a multiple Doctors adventure and this single CD story has got the lot. The Eighth Doctor sets up a time loop which will involve his past selves as they attempt to overcome their oldest enemies.

It is a fairly short adventure compared with the usual two CD four parters so my review is correspondingly brief. This was a terrific romp with four great radio actors (five including Briggs as the voices of the Daleks) giving their best. It gets an appropriate 4 out of 5 temporal paradoxes. Next up is a trip into the past for Big Finish, the Doctor and Ace in Colditz.
