    Wait to get them on CD?

    I'm burning episode 7 onto CD right now!

    I have a connection in Australia who's recorded them then uploads them on a site (MEGAUPLOAD) as mp3s. Then I dl them then burn them!

    I for one love them, I admit Lucy Miller got on my nerves in the beginning. But I really like her now. And McGann as always is fantastic.

    Speaking of "fantastic" was Lucy, who's from the north, be a nod to Eccleston's Doctor. Perhaps it was her interaction with him that influenced his future regeneration, perhaps?

    Lots of planets have a north!

    Well, now they're all done and dusted, I want to say how much I enjoyed the series as a whole. I think it definitely benefited (sp?) from the fifty minute format. Some of Big Finish's wordier tendencies were definitely kept on a short leash.

    It felt very much like the new TV series, complete with two part epics against old foes, comedy episodes (Glam Rock) and slighty winsome Girl in Fireplace type stuff (No More Lies, and that one set in Greece) and I noticed on the forums at Galifrey One that people would often write "I just saw it" or "I can't wait to see it" which was understandable because it had very visual quality.

    I'm now seriously considering Paul McGann as my favourite doctor, except that when I say that I guess people will think I'm just trying to be contrary for the sake of it. I was in the pub the other evening and we were talking about Dr Who. I mentioned I liked Paul McGann, and the other guy just pulled a face.

    Fantastic stuff.

    I feel that this has been the best run of scripts we have seen for Paul McGann's Doctor since he started with Big Finish. Sure, there have been better individual stories, but as a continuous run of stories, they were all at a high level. I for one hope this collaboration with BBC7 and Big Finish continues. I think the personnel changes at Big Finish may have allowed them to reevaluate what and how they were doing and make certain changes that have so far seemed to reap dividends. Hopefully, with time, we will see this trend continue.

    I'm trying to picture what Lucie Miller looks like, now I'm not going to be lazy and say she looks like actress Sheridan "Shez" Smith who voices her!

    Though I won't be upset if she did mind you, I'm just saying I want to think outside the police box. Big Grin

    You could be even lazier and look at the CD covers on the Big Finish's BBC7 Eighth Doctor Product Zone for the CD release covers...

    P.S. - Really though, it is radio, you can imagine her to appear any way you like.

    See, I think she does look like Sheridan Smith (cause I still hold some insane hope that she will appear, somehow, in televised Doctor Who), but at her rather most glam. Since she was snatched from and returned to her first day of a new job, I rather imagine her with an ber-professional look for four of the eight stories.

    Plus, it just amuses me to think about a Lucie-sized amount of sass coming out of someone who looks like this:

    I just finished listening to all of these. This was my introduction to Big Finish audios, and I have to say that I am hooked! I thought this series was wonderful - very well scripted and acted, and I have to admit that McGann's in the lead for my favorite Doctor as well. I commute almost two hours every day, so these were a great way to pass that time - in fact, more than once I was annoyed that the drive was over, because I wanted to hear the end of whatever episode I was on!

    I thought Lucie was a great companion, and I hope that they do more with her in the future. She and Eight played wonderfully off each other, I thought.

    I've now started to go back and "acquire" some of the older Big Finish stuff. I'm not liking Charley quite as much as Lucie, but maybe she'll grow on me.

    w00t! Another convert.

    Have you heard "Chimes of Midnight" yet? Surely McGann's best.

    Haven't made it that far yet. Got through "Storm Warning" and "Sword of Orion" last week, then about half of "Invaders from Mars" when I realized I had skipped a few. Then there was a new Podshock to listen to. Big Grin

    I'm excited to work through this series, although I tend to want to strangle Charley. I'm liking Lucie much better as a companion. McGann, I've decided, I could listen to read the phone book and I'd be happy. His voice is just silk over chocolate. Mr. Green

    Charley is, to me, a very "slow burn" kinda companion. That's somewhat by design, in that, like Lucie, she had a definite story arc. She suffers by comparison with Lucie principally in the fact that she's from an earlier age, and that the "problem" of her arrival in the TARDIS isn't quite so urgent as Lucie's. It takes a while for her to really assert herself, and even then she never approaches Lucie's level of sass.

    A less charitable way of looking at this is to say that Big Finish took their sweet-ass time progressing Charley's character arc.

    As she progressed through those first two seasons, her personality became more pronounced. By the time you hit "Neverland", I rather think you'll quite like her. And she's helped a lot, later on, by C'rizz. The Doctor/C'rizz/Charley combo is quite an interesting one, harkening back, I think, to the Second Doctor's three-person TARDIS crews. As I hear her, Charley ultimately becomes a kind of fusion of Victoria and Zo, refracted through a slightly Rose-colored lens.

    But, yeah, Lucie rocks. She had me in five minutes, whereas it took me five stories before I started looking on Charley as anything much more than "competent". No offense to India, but Nick Briggs clearly made the right call in casting a new companion for the Radio 7 series.

    By the way, Jeneral, I think it's awesome that the Radio 7 season was your introduction to BF audios. While I can think of other individual stories that would be equally good places for the radio virgin, I can't think of anywhere better than these eight stories. I kinda envy you that introduction, in the same way that I wonder what it would be like for my first televised adventure to have been "Rose". It's such a no-baggage place to begin.
