Solid four to four and a half stars, easy.But the first tal, Absent Friends.

Five stars by itself, never mind the other three awesome stories!

Yes, it sor of hinges on Eight being too busy trying to figure out other stuff& therefore not digging into if River is who she appears to be, but no far it 's been working really, really well.I singled out Absent Friends at the eginning but while the series' last episode- The Crucible of Souls- does n't feature the intimacy and emotions of the opener, it 's stil quite a ride of an episode!

Doom Coalition 3 has given me a lot of hope and excitement for the final box set of the series and reminded me just why I love these Big Finish Eighth Doctor box sets.

And it has River Song in it, for those who believe that new-series touch.* Absent Friends- The first story sees the Doctor and companions arriving in 1990s England to encounter a seemingly minor mystery about mobile phones.

ather, it 's anothe story about family and loss, involving both Helen and Liv in different ways, the ort of bittersweet story that the new series occasionally does but that the original never did.

The challenges of time travel feature heavily in this, as one ca sa, and it 's long enough to llow the mystery of what on Earth this has to do with the plot of the previous two volumes ( a lot, as it happens) to unfold slowly.

Unless Doom Coalition 4 goes completely sideways into Full Potato, I 'm just going to sta ahead and say that this has been my favorite overall audio series from Big Finish in a ong time.

Thi addition of River Song ( Professor Malone, Sister Cantica- whatever we 're calling her this time) gave the Doctor, Liv, and Helen a chance to separate a bit and have their own little missions, which I quite enjoyed.Oddly enough, my favourit part of tha story came towards the end where everyone ( including the Doctor) thinks that the Nine is the Doctor and it sor of turns into a Shakespearean " dramedy " where the entire universe hangs in the balance.
