I have a friend who I would love to get into the Bernice Summerfield range.
She has only a passing knowledge of Classic Who (though is a big fan of the new series).
What would be a good audio story to start her with to get her hooked? 😈
When I started, I began with the very first single disc release Oh no it isn't. And frankly I almost stopped right there... The Brigadier as a cat? (Well in MY mind at least. I couldn't NOT picture the Brigadier) As someone from the U.S. I didn't have enough of an understanding of Panto to have my first excursion into the rsnge be anything but nonsensical. Fortunately I pressed on and discovered one of my absolute favorite ranges from Big Finish. Lisa Bowerman is AMAZING. But enough about me...
And back to my friend...
Any recommendations of a particular release or even series to start her on?
Daniel O'Mahoney's Timeless Passages from the main range is one of my personal favourites. I think it's where I started out. It isn't arc-heavy, so there aren't any hurdles to jump and the plot is some of the best temporal shenanigans this side of a time loop. The villain also left a very good impression. Entertainingly nasty, a proper grotesque in the grand old tradition of grotesques.
