Patient Zero (spoilers)
I've only listened to part one thus far. Colin Baker is marvelous in this and as the Doctor and I just love him in this one in particular. He's amazing. The story is very well done but I must admit at the start I was a bit confused and the plot seemed a bit convoluted and confusing but I'm assuming as a bit was explained in the first part more will reveal itself in part two. On the negative side I must say that India Fisher as Charley can really give good headaches. She really gave me a headache in this as her voice rises and fallsl at unexpected moments and she's really got this loud loud loud voice and pentrating throw to it. It really hurt. Added to that she sort of overacts a bit in this...
On the plus side, well there's everything else. The music, the Daleks...Nick Briggs is brilliant in this and his different tones for different Daleks is amazing. The story with the one Dalek who wants to kill the Doctor and the other who is in control and doesn't, is just great and funny and amazing. There is also an alien who can conjoin with itself, unique for DW if not sci fi (see James White especially). There's action, torture, and time twists and for once, it all comes together. Many of the lines are funny, ironic, and unforced. It's just great to hear a good Big Finish!
