    An absolutely wonderful Free Willy story with Space Whales They got the mix right in this one Some action, not too much The exposition wasn t over the top Some serious stuff going on with a real message to it but enough comedy thrown in to keep it from getting too heavy The supporting cast was particularly brilliant in this one, especially the guards This story and the last one have redeemed the Lost Stories for me Prior to them, I was not thinking very highly of this season of them but An absolutely wonderful Free Willy story with Space Whales They got the mix right in this one Some action, not too much The exposition wasn t over the top Some serious stuff going on with a real message to it but enough comedy thrown in to keep it from getting too heavy The supporting cast was particularly brilliant in this one, especially the guards This story and the last one have redeemed the Lost Stories for me Prior to them, I was not thinking very highly of this season of them but these last two have been fantastic

    This particular story was originally written with the Fourth Doctor Tom Baker in mind, and then later considered for the Fifth Doctor Peter Davison It has amusing moments, such as Peri poking fun at how awful taste she believes the Sixth Docor has in regards to his dressing sense The voice acting for characters exclusive to the story is done very well Since this is a story about whaling, there are some references to Moby Dick and the Book of Jonah There is a fair share of amusing and dra This particular story was originally written with the Fourth Doctor Tom Baker in mind, and then later considered for the Fifth Doctor Peter Davison It has amusing moments, such as Peri poking fun at how awful taste she believes the Sixth Docor has in regards to his dressing sense The voice acting for characters exclusive to the story is done very well Since this is a story about whaling, there are some references to Moby Dick and the Book of Jonah There is a fair share of amusing and dramatic moments throughout

    A would be television story scuppered during the tenures of three different Doctors the Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Resurrected now in audio form, Megaptera proves a perfectly serviceable adventure, benefiting from some strong guest performances and not having to show the space whale

    Not a bad story, by any means, but one that doesn t fully live up to its potential On the plus side Space whales are cool Time travelling space whales are particularly cool Peri gets to be wise cracking rather than whiny, and has a couple of particularly funny lines I m not delirious, I m an American was hilarious for reasons that I can t fully explain There s some rather good double act repartee between a pair of hapless security guard characters On the minus side Mills seems never Not a bad story, by any means, but one that doesn t fully live up to its potential On the plus side Space whales are cool Time travelling space whales are particularly cool Peri gets to be wise cracking rather than whiny, and has a couple of particularly funny lines I m not delirious, I m an American was hilarious for reasons that I can t fully explain There s some rather good double act repartee between a pair of hapless security guard characters On the minus side Mills seems never to have met a bit of technobabble he didn t like Throwing around words like dark matter , event horizon , hyperstition and techno shaman is presumably supposed to give a nice shiny science fictional verneer to what is otherwise basically a whaling story, but it never seems like the author has thought particularly hard about what it all means or how it works Not to mention that it leads to ridiculous lines of dialogue like, No It s a fungoid lifeform Lasers have no effect The fungoid techno shaman whale hunter represents a potentially fascinating alien culture, which is not explored in much depth Although this may be for the best, since Mills ultimately seems determined to expose him as just as greedy and morally dubious as the big industrial space whale hunters Which made me wince a bit, since Mills drew from Polynesian and Native American whale hunting cultures in creating the character I don t think that Mills intended to do anything other than subvert the audience expectation that this character would turn out to be a kind of noble savage But still Entertaining, but flawed

    I think space whales were a thing totally done with the Ninth Doctor And this play states that they re the only void living creatures So I guess it s the same space whales The Doctor and Peri come across the magnificent time traveling space whales, but also come across space whalers They must save this magnificent creature, but the T.A.R.D.I.S s time field is provingdangerous than the whalers themselves There s only one solution transport the T.A.R.D.I.S inside the whale Makes perfe I think space whales were a thing totally done with the Ninth Doctor And this play states that they re the only void living creatures So I guess it s the same space whales The Doctor and Peri come across the magnificent time traveling space whales, but also come across space whalers They must save this magnificent creature, but the T.A.R.D.I.S s time field is provingdangerous than the whalers themselves There s only one solution transport the T.A.R.D.I.S inside the whale Makes perfect sense.Overall, though, it was an enjoyable story A good bit of timey wimey stuff, a good bit of morality tale

    The Doctor and Peri watch some space whales, only problem is one of them is going to be killed by a whaling space ship They land on the ship where things are not running smoothly This is part of the lost season with scripts from the 80s It is a fun, light hearted story with understandable danger All the characters appeal to be fleshed out, and the dialogue is witty A very good read.
