So audity made mention of potentially doing an awards type audience poll thing for the Big Finish releases of 2018, and as nothing came of that after a couple of days I had an idea of how we could at least determine the top 10 best releases of the year. The plan is to create a poll, month by month everyone being able to pick 3 releases from each month and after January 2019 I will compile a thread with the top 20 releases of the year with whichever has the most votes. This poll is for March 2018, more to follow after testing the waters. Of course, discussion is encouraged.
NOTE: The ATA Girl Excerpt is not included nor is the Dark Shadows: The Quentin Collins Collection, the former is part of ATA Girl and the later is made of pre-2018 releases.
Am a sucker for a good atmospheric Holmes and Grange provided it as for the Third Doctor adventure i was totally sucked into this one by Tim and Katy especially Tyrants i just love that story my third choice was Omega loved it and it provided a possible closure thought i would love to hear more.Serpent was Great and fun too but hey you cannot pick them all 🤪as for the Death of Captain Jack...well i havent heard but we can dream cant we?
I loved 'Serpent in the Silver Mask' in all its 'Kind Hearts and Coronets' Ealing-esque glory. Peter Davison and Samuel West were brilliant in their many scenes together, and the unforgettable moment when the (cough) glamorous Maria Mazzini makes a pass at the Doctor had me in tears! And it's a very good mystery too with a clever science-fiction ending which relies on the Doctor not only as a hero, but a Time Lord hero.
The 3DAs Vol 4 were of course one of my top highlights of the year so far. I enjoyed 'Rise of the New Humans', but 'The Tyrants of Logic' was outstanding and Tim Treloar just gets better and better.
