    2. Another exceptional Big Finish tale with the Sixth Doctor I.D plays out over three parts as opposed to the normal four and really benefits from the shortened run time, as it forces the truncated story to be tighter, faster paced and less stuffed Urgent Calls is a fun one parter For on these, check out our reviews at travelingthevortex

    3. This is the first Doctor Who book I ve listened too and I m quite pleased that I listened to it I m just now attempting to jump on the Doctor Who bandwagon and I d say listening to a few of the short stories is definitely getting me hooked on the Doctor In this story The Doctor and Lauren expierence this weird phenomenon that when they call someone it ends up being a missed call that leads to one another At first they don t understand the situation, but then it starts to make sense and The Docto [...]

    4. I.D is a three part story, featuring the 6th Doctor, but without any companions It s a fairly routine story about a base under siege by deranged robots, although it obviously aspires to be rather In particular, as the title implies, it s supposed to be about the nature of identity, this being a culture in which it s possible to upload personalities, but, honestly, it s a fairly small part of the story Quite well done, to be fair, but nothing remarkable 3 5 However, I.D is followed on the CD by [...]

    6. Urgent Calls was excellent.The CD Extras were very entertaining and Gyles Brandreth was especially so.The story I.D was at best okay, but since this was 3 4 of the CD it lowers the overall rating.I wasn t aware at the outset of listening that this was a 3 part story, and I was wondering how they could could drag it out, and actually dreadding them doing so I was quite a relief to find Part 3 was the end.

    7. I only listened to Urgent Calls as it was part of a free Big Finish give away awhile ago It was a lovely story It was a really clever two hander that was spooky, claustrophobic and a little funny It made for a very nice change Definitely one I d recommend.

    8. A companionless Sixy travels to the distant future for a base under siege style adventure with lots of good ol fashioned sci fi and technobabble Lots of fun and a great cast The short story Urgent Calls is also a very well done and interesting little nugget Both are a great listen.
