As the 9th Doc heads back to Earth, War meets old comrades, 6th makes a new friend, Sherlock and John have unfinished business across the Atlantic, does Liv want a revolution, Tosh is a reluctant criminal once again, hidden histories revealed in the B7 universe, has Abbey finally gone too far to Survive.
Battlegrounds is my most anticipated. I’ve loved the first two War Doctor Begins sets, Carley plays the role effortlessly and I’m loving how they’re pushing the Doctor each time. Ken Bones is worth every penny too, I can’t wait to see how he is with the Doctor.
Water Worlds is my next anticipated. I’ve lamented the theme, and also expressed my Colin fatigue over the past couple of weeks, but I’m prepared to put my money where my mouth is. It’s hard to turn down Ruth Madeley; I hope she keeps Colin on his toes and I’m intrigued to hear the dynamic.
And finally Back to Earth. I’m not as enamoured by the Ninth Doctor Adventures as others for a variety of reasons, but it’s hard to underestimate the coup of Eccleston reprising the role and to hear the joy in his voice. That’s keeping me coming back for more and this set in particular sounds more akin to Respond to All Calls, which I loved.
6DA: Water Worlds, which I’m quite optimistic for. Mainly cos Rayner’s stuff on Who is usually reliably good quality, new companion promises something different and I don’t even mind the gimmick as water worlds haven’t been done all that much.
WDB: Battlegrounds as well. First two sets were pretty decent so hopefully this corner of the Time War can keep it up.
I’m oddly nonplussed on the Ninth Doctor set. Maybe the sheer novelty of Eccleston doing audio has just worn off a bit and the first wave of boxsets has scratched the itch for more Nine somewhat. I’ll probably end up getting it eventually.
