Eight and Charley reading books by JohannesVIII Eight and Charley reading books by JohannesVIII
To be more precise, Eight falling asleep while reading a book and Charley taking advantage of the situation.
I'm sorry, I just really like to draw these two reading books together and having zero personal space.

Thank you!
It's certainly the best TARDIS so far.

What can I say - I could't help myself, I wanted to see what happens. And it's definitely time for a little audio break. I love Eighth and Charley, they are probably my favourite TARDIS duo and that says a lot. I even think that Charley managed to became my favourite companion, maybe even more than Sarah-Jane. I've seen them all - from Susan till Clara, and I've seen all the departures. And I can guarantee that there isn't a sadder departure. I can't even process it yet. This story shouldn't have been their last story, it was so exiting and yes - like before the Divergent universe. And I just love the moment when she couldn't forget. No, Charley is better than that, she is the best, she can't forget. I wish she did forget. I would have been horrible but this is even worse. I actually started crying at the final cliffhanger. That's when I finally understood the whole tragic. She thought he was dead and meeting a younger version of him wouldn't help. He thought that she left him for real, that she was somewhere happy, and he could never remember that he had more adventures with her. He didn't even think she was dead. He thought she had left him. And I do believe she was going to stay him. And I don't hate Eighth anymore. ;( This story...

I told you that ending was excruciating to listen to. I still haven't listened to it a second time.

As you already know, I haven't seen most of Classic Who yet, so I can't really tell if that's the most tragic companion departure of all, but it certainly beats the ones from New Who. I mean, yeah, Doomsday put a few tears in my eyes. Donna's departure was even worse. But I certainly wasn't sobbing uncontrollably for twenty goddamn minutes afterwards.

Someone told me Lucie's departure is even worse than that. Lucie took some time to grow on me but I really love her now (not as much as Charley, but she's still better than a lot of New Who companions) and since Big Finish can be really, really fucking cruel, I'm actually a bit scared of her future. Since the new series was announced and the existence of the Time War was revealed, the people writing for Big Finish apparently decided it was their mission to gradually break the Eighth Doctor, so it shouldn't be surprising, but it doesn't make it more reassuring at all.

Apparently, Charley has quite a lot of adventures with Six and even her own spinoff after she left him too. I'll probably listen to that later.

Oh, and I just finished to write my reviews for Lucie's first season, thanks to you (I lacked the motivation).

Big Finish make things that could never be made for TV series. In my opinion that's why there is so much body horror and torture and everything. So probably that's why all of the companions have a really tragic ending.

Charley and C'rizz were definitely better companion than anyone in the New series. I think that the New series really lacks a companion who is more Classical Who or more audio adventure. The new companions are not good enough characters when compared to the ones before them.

I'm not sure yet if I want to listen to Charley's adventures after Eight. Maybe after a while but for now I'm sticking to Eight's stories. I don't know how I will feel about Six and Charley. :D

I'm happy that you finished your reviews, I'm looking forward to reading them :)

Overall I would rate the stories so far like this: (some are not very objective)
Storm Warning 7/10; The Sword of Orion 4/10; The Stones of Venice 8/10; Minuet in Hell 6/10; Invaders from Mars 5/10; The Chimes of Midnight 10/10; Seasons of Fear 10/10; Embrace the Darkness 5/10; The Time of the Daleks 6/10; Neverland 10/10
Zagreus 5/10 (Wonderland 4/10, Heartland 4/10, Wasteland 7/10); Scherzo 11/10 (yeah, I know this is cheating :D); The Creed of Kromon 4/10; The Natural History of Fear 9/10; The Twilight Kingdom 4/10; Faith Stealer 9/10; The Last 9/10; Caerdroia 9/10; The Next Life 7/10; Terror Firma 6/10; Scaredy Cat 3/10; Other Lives 10/10; Time Works 8/10; Something Inside 6/10; Memory Lane; Absolution 9/10; The Girl Who Never Was 10/10

So far, the audio that made me think "okay, wow, that would NEVER pass in the TV series" the most often was Jubilee (what a surprise, it's written by the same writer who made Scherzo - to be fair, Scherzo is even more disturbing, but I was kinda shell shocked by it, so I didn't really think about how TV-unfriendly it was at first). My God, Jubilee. There's a whole human society admiring Daleks and trying to exceed their cruelty, and succeeding at it, can you believe that? There's also an alternative version of Six who ends up locked up in a tower during a century, who witnesses his companion slowly dying in the same cell, who gets both his legs chopped off, and who ends up completely insane. He believes the cell is his TARDIS and thinks that if he concentrates enough, he can make it travel through space and time. His discussion with Evelyn was completely heartbreaking.

I'm both glad Big Finish exists and baffled by the kind of stuff they dare to put in their stories.

Looks like Dalek has nothing to do with Jubilee. :D And Jubilee sounds like an awesome story. Maybe later on I will give Six's audios a go, too.

It has a lot in common with Jubilee, in fact. There's humans keeping a Dalek prisoner, and it's the last of its kind. They've been trying to make it talk for ages and have tortured it to reach that goal. The "owner" of that Dalek is clearly unstable and admires it far too much. The scene where Nine is locked up with the Dalek, panics, then realises its weapon doesn't work and proceeds to mock it is almost copied line for line from Jubilee. At some point, the Doctor's companion talks to the Dalek and inadvertantly gives it new ideas that makes it question its own nature...
Rob Shearman simply made it suitable for TV, and simpler, so it can fit in a 40 minutes episode.
