One of my most favourite of the whole Bennie Range ever. The Doctor goes into therapy yes we have had Our Doctor In therapy in the Sixth Doctor and Peri range but nothing compares to David’s Doctor on the psychiatrist couch.Annette Badlands though is the standout in this as the psychiatrist,she is just simply superb.I don’t want to go into spoiler territory but if you haven’t listened go listen it’s a stand-alone tale for most part and if you do not fall in love with it...I will buy a Torchwood 😂...might be lying there 😂😉
I love the whole set. Heck, I adore the whole range with Benny and the Warner Doctor. What a welcome change of pace, wonderful characters and original story ideas. Might even do another re-listen...
I think when I go to the box set it is THE STANDOUT tale for me but you are correct if you start one tale you end up at the next normally and I find that with the Benny sets from 3 onwards definitely and Lost In Translation I have to save was one of the Favourite Listens of last year...more soon please but if it’s slow I will start on the audiobooks as am finding them excellent just as am about to go to bed-single narration and Lisa is a good narrator too so it shouldn’t be any trouble at all...
This one is simply superb. I really like just how alien the Doctor comes across in this and you know that if this was set in the main universe, it would be the perfect tale for the Ninth Doctor.
Oh I don’t know I think it suits Warner the most a man who has seen his race obliterated and his universe on the point of collapse and lost everything what he does is understandable and poignant in the light of the universe ending scenario....
I don't know that I'm sufficiently well-versed in Benny's stories to say what the best of her range are (I've yet to hear a single story that wasn't pretty damned good), but I can at least say, with great confidence, that of what I have listened to? Asking for a Friend is among my favorites. Very possibly my very favorite, period.
Such a lovely premise, and so beautifully-acted. I knew David Warner would be a fantastic Doctor from the very first moment I thought of him in the role, but this story really defines just how good he can be. I honestly do not posses enough superlatives to adequately describe my affection for his Doctor.
I've compiled all of my Big Finishes purchases into a single massive document, alongside those on my wishlist (bolded, right-justified). Check it out to see what I've already listened to (or soon will), or to recommend me something new to listen to!
