Doctor Who: Time Works


Blurb from Big Finish Website:

“You want to know about the Time Keepers?

“We work in their shadow, every tick and tock of our lives. We hear them in the workings of the Great Clock. We work hard, turn our hands – but we all wind down in time, and that is when they come for us: when our time is up.”

The TARDIS lands in between times, in a time where this is no time. A time in which nothing can possibly be. But something is…

The Doctor, Charley and C’rizz are rats in the wheelwork, a threat to the schedule of a world where timing is everything. And the seconds are counting down to a fateful future that has already happened. Unless they can beat the clock.

Tick, tock.

After a few weaker stories, Big Finish seems to have rebounded for the 80th release in its Doctor Who audio adventures series. This is a great story, full of wonderful characters and great situations with a nice, tight resolution (which has been Big Finish's biggest weakness recently. From start to finish, this is their most satisfying release in a long time. In fact, I would love to see this story "reimagined" for the current TV show like the previous Big Finish story Jubilee was reimagined into last series' Dalek.

And, ah, who cares what else I write here, even though a few people will see this post through a Google search on "Doctor Who Time Works", they'll have stopped reading already by this point; and the vast majority of my audience sits at a desk right behind me or in a little subdivision right outside Murfreesboro Tennessee.
