Eighth Doctor: Sword of Orion


Writer and Director: Nicholas Briggs

Running Time: 2 hours, 3 minutes

Companion: Charlotte “Charley” Pollard (India Fisher)

Charley is worried about Ramsay, the Vortisaur who stowed away in “Storm Warning”, looking ill. She and the Doctor can’t carry him to the control room time vortex. The Doctor decides that there is one way to restore Ramsay back to health, but doesn’t tell Charley. They soon arrive in the middle of the Orion War, a war with the Cybermen being fought in the Orion System.

Review: This was Big Finish’s first story to feature the Cybermen, and while it was a good attempt, it felt derivative. It felt too much like it was trying to copy what the classic show had done with the Cybermen, rather than doing anything original.

Overall Rating: 4/10
