    Enjoyed this but feel like it should have gone further In the special features there's talk that the War Doctor is still the Doctor and that his only un Doctory act is triggering the Moment at the end of the Time War but I disagree I think he triggers the Moment because he's been pushed gradually to that extreme and doesn't see another way out Still these are good stories and a little different from the usual Doctor Who fare

  2. Steven Steven says:

    The War Doctor is on his way to being the best of Doctors based on his small canon of work so far

  3. Christopher Buchanan Christopher Buchanan says:

    Sir John Hurt David Warner as a Technomancer properly temporally complex Time War the Daleks relegated mostly to the background Nailed it I love this

  4. Debra Cook Debra Cook says:

    The Doctor tries again to get a peace between the Timelords and the Daleks

  5. Jamie Revell Jamie Revell says:

    Unlike its predecessor this second release consists of three separate hour long stories each by a different author Each of the stories is based around the theme of secret weapons and the first two end on cliffhangers that lead directly into the next one but even so they are essentially distinct Legion of the Lost The Doctor stumbles across an alliance between the Time Lords and another advanced culture that plans to use a terrible weapon to win the war against the Daleks The Daleks themselves aren't in this one which does at least give some variety although the technomancers providing the new weapon are at least as clichéd themselves which doesn't help There are some moral arguments in here about the justification for using the weapon but we're never really in any doubt that the Doctor is right to oppose it Good performances and the context of the wider conflict help to raise this above the average A Thing of Guile This time it's the Daleks who are building the secret weapon although exactly what it is is left a mystery for most of the episode Here as in the first volume we're right back into war story territory with the Doctor and other Time Lords trying to infiltrate the Daleks' base and find out what they're up to This turns out to be similar to a Dalek plan used in an episode of the new series although to be fair the methodology is different and there's no indication that they're supposed to be connected in any way With a subplot concerning a spaceship trying to escape from the Daleks this is a fast paced tale that once again probes the boundaries of how ruthless the War Doctor is prepared to be The Neverwhen The strongest story of the three and just about nudging the overall collection into five star territory this focuses on a nightmarish front line in the Time War A significant message here is just how low the Time Lords in general and recurring villain Cardinal Ollistra in particular are willing to stoop While this too is a war story it's one about the horror of war rather than a typical action adventure although this is conveyed by implication than by being explicitly shown And once again there are moments when the War Doctor's morality is called into uestion as well as some scenes highlighting his differences from and similarities to his other incarnations

    Legion of the Lost 35David Warner is typically great as the arrogant and powerful villain and I like how this views the crimes of the Time War in a spiritual way but really it’s all just over so fast that it’s not enough A Thing of Guile 4Intense intriguing and one that really embodies the loss of humanity and desperation of the Time War Big Finish have really put their imaginations to creating the most ghastly horrors for these Time War boxsets The Neverwhen 4Brings to a close this boxsets themes with a fascinating and genuinely original situation if not an entirely interesting story We see the effects of choosing war over humanity are in horror at the state that people have been degraded to and see the true terror when technology and the desperate need to win go hand in hand

    Another solidly entertaining Big Finish audio production Just wonderful stuff John Hurt is fantastic as the Warrior aka The War Doctor and the other actors all delivery delightful performances I was particularly pleased with David Warner's contributions He's always been a welcome addition to any cast Looking forward to the third set

    This is the first Big Finish Audio that I have listened to and hopefully not the last My only complaint is that the stories are too short or maybe its that I'm used to audio novels rather than dramas Also I had a tear in my eye listening to the bonus disc and everyone praise John Hurt RIP

    Legion of the Lost 45A Thing of Guile 45The Neverwhen 55 If any single thing could be considered Gallifrey’s deadliest weapon and greatest hope it’s him
