    The obvious problem with doing audio plays rather than novels or comics featuring any of the first three Doctors is that their actors are no longer with us Up until 2014, Big Finish dealt with this by using their Companion Chronicles format, audiobooks narrated in the first person and told from the perspective of one of the companions With this new series, they expand that a little The stories are still narrated, and, to that extent feellike audiobooks than full blown plays, but the n The obvious problem with doing audio plays rather than novels or comics featuring any of the first three Doctors is that their actors are no longer with us Up until 2014, Big Finish dealt with this by using their Companion Chronicles format, audiobooks narrated in the first person and told from the perspective of one of the companions With this new series, they expand that a little The stories are still narrated, and, to that extent feellike audiobooks than full blown plays, but the narration is in third person, and much of the story is told through dialogue provided by a small cast of actors, and so is not solely seen from one person s perspective They are also double the length, allowing for acomplex narrative.This very first offering features the original line up of the TV show, with William Russell delivering the Doctor s lines as well as Ian s, and Carole Ann Ford speaking as both Susan and Barbara Three other actors round out the cast, providing five main guest characters between them As the title indicates, it is a sequel to the first season TV story The Keys of Marinus, only the second story to actually feature a monster , in the form of the titular Voord.Although we know virtually nothing about them from the screened episodes, writer Terry Nation intended the Voord to be interstellar conquerors, and that s the theme followed up here The TARDIS crew land on an alien planet recently subjugated by the Voord, and become involved in the resistance This obviously has echoes of The Dalek Invasion of Earth, and its enlivened by an exotic setting that makes the alien planet feel likethan simply one town or colony, but a whole world.Other tropes of the First Doctor s run are also on display here the early separation of the travellers from the TARDIS, living among the locals for several weeks, and an honest attempt to actually look at an alien culture Here, that s the Voord, who are fardetailed and, at times, sympathetic than they were in the original TV story, and become muchinteresting as foes because of it The weaknesses arise from the inevitable fact that, even in this new,expanded, format, there are a limited number of original actors available, and they are fifty years older now than they were then William Russell, for instance, is clearly not going to fool anyone into thinking he s still thirty, for all the general quality of his narration and acting Partly to mask the first of these issues, the story primarily follows Susan and Ian, with Barbara reduced to a bit part, and even the Doctor missing for over half of the run time On the plus side, this does at least mean that Susan gets to be acentral part of the story than she often was on TV, even if a key part of it still hinges on her being placed in peril.There s also an issue with the incidental music being overly loud and distracting, something that should at least be easy to fix in later releases.Despite such flaws, I found this to be an excellent start to the new series, doing a good job of evoking the atmosphere of the era, but expanding onto a wider stage than would ever have been possible on 60s TV, as well as breathing some life into one of the Doctor senigmatic foes If they d been this well developed and original the first time round, they might have been used again

    We can expect a double length audiobook with Carole Ann Ford and William Russell to at least be easy on the ears Both actors handle their characters voices, and severalbesides, very enjoyably.Visiting Hydra, a planet dominated by a vast archipelago, our heroes promptly lose the TARDIS to the depths of the ocean, and are left in the middle of a sea battle against the Voord, initally a shallow, throwaway villainous race from the early adventures of the series Here they are given a lot mor We can expect a double length audiobook with Carole Ann Ford and William Russell to at least be easy on the ears Both actors handle their characters voices, and severalbesides, very enjoyably.Visiting Hydra, a planet dominated by a vast archipelago, our heroes promptly lose the TARDIS to the depths of the ocean, and are left in the middle of a sea battle against the Voord, initally a shallow, throwaway villainous race from the early adventures of the series Here they are given a lotdepth, as we explore their customs and origins It s very pleasing to depart from the trope of one dimensional villainy, as the Voord are delineated into several factions, some not unsympathetic with the Doctor and his companions As the main antagonists of the story they are understandably corrupt, but even so their dignity and ethics shine through, on a personal level.In fact, we learn muchabout the culture of the Voord invaders than we do about the people of Hydra, which come out as bland, with a few exceptions In this light, it was difficult to decide whom to root for The Voord showed clear superiority, having taken over all land and leaving the locals to wander the seas on a navy flotilla But one wonders if the Voord don t actually deserve to rule over the generic Hydra people In the end, the overbearing fascism of the Voord makes them unsympathetic, and so sets them up to fail.I would gladly give this story a better mark, but it is marred with a bombastic and distracting soundtrack which tries to awe the listener but, at least for me, clashed with the immersion in the story

    1st of the early adventures range and a hybrid between the main range with full cast audio and the narrated style of the Companion Chronicles Good story with a lot of depth, that doesn t shy away from difficult questions Definitely Dr Who for adults, and not one that would have been screened during the 1st Dr s run.

    A favorite and essential Big Finish in my collection.This writer gets it and actually expands on the Voord I actually watched The Keys of Marinus again after decades due to this rendering Love it Originally I suppose that I objectively rated this 4 5 on my integer scale, not quite pushing masterpiece, but really after all I listened to, the length and what you get, this is pretty a perfect dream release for fans wanting early adventures For those who grew up with the dawning VHS era for exam A favorite and essential Big Finish in my collection.This writer gets it and actually expands on the Voord I actually watched The Keys of Marinus again after decades due to this rendering Love it Originally I suppose that I objectively rated this 4 5 on my integer scale, not quite pushing masterpiece, but really after all I listened to, the length and what you get, this is pretty a perfect dream release for fans wanting early adventures For those who grew up with the dawning VHS era for example where hardcore fans collected Pertwee forward and especially re runs of the 3rd 5th in the 80s, jumping forward in time to when amazingly we have all these audio releases to sift through and continue to have them available good, bad and sometimes ugly due to writing mostly , it is pretty fantastic today that we get valid, authentic perfect first Doctor releases Russell and Ford get my deep thanks as well as the writer, etc.These are too rare and they shouldn t be.In retrospect, this adventure was a blast and as the french would say id al I hear the Voords were originally French, seriously.MY ORIGINAL NOTES REVIEW AFTER FIRST LISTENClassic and excellent setup with a very exciting nautical first episode Well written script with dialogue and small excerpts of narration to aid the voice acting Strong acting, sound production, music and fx The release cover represents this first act very well What unfolds is a classic but standard and darker adventure that is an easy listen excelling in all the aforementioned areas as well as producing an interesting theme fleshing out the Voord with significant depth Overall an excellent full production The introductory section in retrospect I feel is especially memorable and atmospheric The Voord Music Suite is a pretty good composition and bonus for the release.This was 4 5 solid Bumped to 5 5.Director Ken BentleyWriter Andrew Smith

    Doctor Who Domain of the Voord, is from The Earley Adventures , a range of narrated audio dramas featuring the first two incarnations of the Doctor The Voord previously appeared in the William Hartnell serial The Keys of Marinus , this is their first appearance in a Big Finish audio This is a fantastic example of how sixties Doctor Who can be brought into the modern day without becoming something completely unrecognisable, with a plot that is thoughtful and sensitive but also dramatic and Doctor Who Domain of the Voord, is from The Earley Adventures , a range of narrated audio dramas featuring the first two incarnations of the Doctor The Voord previously appeared in the William Hartnell serial The Keys of Marinus , this is their first appearance in a Big Finish audio This is a fantastic example of how sixties Doctor Who can be brought into the modern day without becoming something completely unrecognisable, with a plot that is thoughtful and sensitive but also dramatic and action packed It also creates a feeling of nostalgia by faithfully characterising the original Tardis crew and by bringing back the Voord, expanding on them as a race and a culture making themthan just visually striking but also formidable and memorable foe One minor gripe would be that William Russell, who in this case plays Ian Chesterton as he on the television but also the Doctor, is now better suited to voicing the latter than the former due to sounding very little as he did back then which took me out of the story at times Another issue is that Carole Ann Ford who plays Susan also steps in for Jacqueline Hill Barbara Wright makes little distinction between the two the two characters Fortunately these issues are negated by he use of narration throughout what is one of my favourite audio stories

    A really enjoyable listen this one Possibly biased, in as much as Ian and Barbara are two of my favourite companions, so listening to or watching them is always a pleasure The story is a good one, following on from Keys of Marinus and expanding on the Voord, with some interesting information to be learnt Quite a bit of tension and emotion at times, even when know how major outcomes will turn out William Russell and Carole Ann Ford do well here, voicing their characters as well as the Docto A really enjoyable listen this one Possibly biased, in as much as Ian and Barbara are two of my favourite companions, so listening to or watching them is always a pleasure The story is a good one, following on from Keys of Marinus and expanding on the Voord, with some interesting information to be learnt Quite a bit of tension and emotion at times, even when know how major outcomes will turn out William Russell and Carole Ann Ford do well here, voicing their characters as well as the Doctor and Barbara respectively, can really picture the characters here, and overall the story captures the feel of the their era well, even if some bits wouldn t have been televisable All round a really nice listen

    42 WORD REVIEW Fifty years on, Andrew Smith succeeds in upgrading the Voord from the kooky wetsuited villains of Marinus to a threatening, believable race Voiced by original ever young companions William Russell and Carole Ann Ford, the story carries itself with a becoming stateliness.

  8. Danny Welch says:

    A very solid story that deals with Ian and Susan dealing with a great deal of grief whilst they battle against their old enemies The Voord This story gave The Voord much needed development with some very good idea A good story with a serious tone to it 8.5 10

  9. Chris says:

    Felt like a true first doctor episode That said not the most engaging story The first doctor is a bit of an asshole grumpy old man.
