    1. A nice little pair of stories on this one. Marc Platt, as usual, brings the weirdness in "Time Reef", giving us vaguely Greek warriors marooned on a stranded time ship, a beautiful woman who lives in a jar, and pandimensional talking birds. And we learn what Thomas Brewster was up to after he stole the Doctor's TARDIS. I think this may be Big Finish's best three-part story yet - it's certainly one of the first to feel fully comfortable at its length, and not like a squashed four-parter or a padd [...]


    2. Fun audio I don't mind Brewster at least he is interesting more than I can say about about Nyssa most of the time. 6/10


    3. The Doctor, Nyssa, and new companion Thomas Brewster find themselves seemingly stranded in a bubble of time (whatever that is). The story suffers partly from having a rather vague setting, and not really holding together well. But it suffers rather more from the fact that every single character in it, bar the two main regulars is entirely unlikeable.Brewster, of course, is a somewhat shady character, but at least in his first outing, The Haunting of Thomas Brewster, you could have some sympathy [...]


    4. Marc Platt is either brilliant or incomprehensible in my experience, and unfortunately Time Reef is more in the latter category. Thomas Brewster, who joined Five and Nyssa a couple of adventures ago, has temporarily borrowed the Tardis and flogged most of the interior fittings to a rather curious spaceship marooned on a Time Reef. The script was witty and weird, but I didn't get enough of a handle on the means and motivation of the various players, including particularly Brewster himself. Also i [...]


    5. In this adventure the Doctor battles extra-dimensional talking crows made of rainbows to save a bunch of sailor cliches and a not-all-is-as-it-seems damsel in distress who are stuck on a sea allegory in the time vortex. Yeah, that pretty much sums it. Marc Platt can write some very cerebral and trippy stories that are quite good. However, sometimes I think he just O.D.'s on cough syrup and pushes the boat out. This one is of the later. I thought one-part Jonathan Morris story at the end might sa [...]


    6. It's rather clever how all this comes about but the character moments are sadly dull. Five is petulant, Nyssa insists in people being reasonable and Thomas screwed things up when he stole the TARDIS. Yawn. But as I said, the set-up is clever enough to bump it up a star.


    7. Working my way through the rest of the Thomas Brewster stories, and enjoying them so far. Interesting idea with a temporal time reef and I like that the characters aren't so black and white.


    8. The fallout from Thomas Brewster's theft of the TARDIS continues. Five and Nyssa struggle to set things right.



    9. When The doctor gets his Tardis back he sees that Brewster has sold parts off. The goto a planet that is dying and reverse the problem. They also goto earth and reverse work done by perfection elves.
