    • can't believe this the second Cyberman adjacent story set in an office (the first being Army of Ghosts/Doomsday) and they haven't just made a version of The Office that stars exclusively Cybermenyway, this is a very good cap to a mixed season. and I mean, it's Doctor Who, the TV show is rarely super consistent in terms of quality, so why should the radio version be either? the one-off episodes never really worked as well as they should've, but the two parters made up for them. I like the charact [...]




    • I've enjoyed all of the Big Finish Doctor #8 audiobooks that I've heard, but this was the best. Good pace, some surface level absurdities on top of relevant commentary about corporatism. Feels like it fits into the about the same time period as "The Sun Makers", "Paradise Towers", "Carnival of Monsters", & probably a few others where we viewers have a hint that maybe there's a complex, galactic civilization that's almost ready to, say, manufacture planets to specification or try some time tr [...]


    • Irgendwass stimmt definitiv nicht bei Hulbert Logistics in Telford. Der Doktor hat dort nun auch einen Job und eines ist sowas von klar: Das ist keine normale Büroarbeit. Wirklich dumm, dass Lucie und ihre ebenfalls neue Kollegin anscheinend einen Fehler bei der Dateneingabe gemacht haben, und gefeuert werden und zwar durch die Luftschleuse. Sie finden sich auf einem fremden Planeten wieder und bekommen Hilfe von einem entlassenen Abteilungleiter. Human Resources hingegen ist extrem sauer, weil [...]


    • This two-part story is a superb conclusion to the first season of new Eighth Doctor Adventures, albeit one that loses the element of surprise about its villain based on the two CD covers (especially the second one).Like its immediate predecessor, Human Resources plays with the idea that the mundane is not always as it appears yet does so much more successfully. Office life is something many of us can relate to and Robson does a great job of satirizing elements of that setting such as the overly- [...]


    • I listened to the first season and half of The Eight Doctor & Lucie Miller incredibly close together and back to back, so all of them are going to end up with the same review for the moment while I'm fixing up my forgotten rec's and clearing out my Currently Reading Folder (which shouldn't be 40+ books, it should be somewhere relatively close to right under ten). I have loved meeting Eight, and his resigned but inspirational way of being. I love Lucy's moxy, and her mouth. Her mouth may be t [...]


    • By this point I'm assuming you've listened to part 1, so read at your own risk.(view spoiler)[ So was it just me, or was it a little difficult to understand the cybermen when they spoke? I found them difficult to understand, and sometimes had to listen more than once to make out certain things.It's great to finally see some sort of resolution to the headhunter arc. Any longer and I feel it would have been dragging on. However, I do feel that she was being set up for a repeat appearance. Anyone e [...]


    • Definitely a lot better than the first part, it was just really entertaining and the mystery behind Lucy gets explained in a rather strange way. Lots of foreshadowing in the ending, can't wait to see if they're going to go with it in the future seasons and I am really loving the Lucie/Eight TARDIS team (Lucie actually reminds me a bit like a younger Donna Noble and i'm really loving it). The cybermen were very interesting in this and all of the characters were just very interesting and well-done [...]


    • Given the parallels between The Runaway Bride and Blood of the Daleks, I wasn't surprised when the office environment where Lucie was meant to be all along turned out to be a front for an alien plot. But actually it turns out to be an Ender's Game scenario, with added Cybermen and feuding Time Lord factions, and a nearly convincing resolution to the storyline of the Head-Hunter. Sheridan Smith gets some very good moments as Lucie, realising the extent to which she has been manipulated by the Tim [...]


    • Hubert agrees to work with the Cybermen, against the Doctor's advice. The Doctor learns that these Cybermen are an earlier version of the Cybermen he will encounter on Telos, having not recognised the name of the planet. Lucie and the ex-employees meet the Headhunter, who explains she was hired by Hubert to track Lucie down in case a rival company was trying to reverse-engineer his brainwashing techniques. As she has no desire to see the Cybermen win, she agrees to help them.


    • I enjoyed the old fashioned sing song cybermen voices in this one. But they just weren't scary. The seemed more of a plot device threat than an actual threat, or further advancing the story of the cybermen. The time travel and the CIA was ok. Lucie getting pissed off at the Time Lords was great. I like the evil head hunter. I have to say the EDA remind me a lot more of Bennie Summerfield than the main Doctor Who range of stories. But I'm still really enjoying them.


    • Solid and entertaining story with some twists. Okay, the whole premise behind it is a bit goofy but I like the symbolism their going for. An interesting resolution to Lucy's backstory too.



    • They lost me with all the Time Lord stuff, I couldn't care less about it. Now I appreciate Hell Bent even more – that was a great way to make use of Gallifrey.



    • I didn't see the point in rating part 1 & 2 separately. This is the first story I've heard with Lucy Miller, and enjoyed it. Nothing like listening to a series out of order, after all.
