The Sixth Doctor returns, and he's thrown straight in at the deep end! Travelling the galaxy with Melanie Bush and their brand-new companion, marine biologist Hebe Harrison, there are wonders to see, dangers to face and plenty of peril beneath the waves.

1.1 The Rotting Deep by Jacqueline Rayner (2 parts)
A mysterious SOS summons the Doctor and Mel to an oil rig in the North Sea where a dwindling group of survivors awaits rescue from a lethal menace. One of their number is Hebe Harrison, a wheelchair-using marine biologist who is definitely more than she seems. Can our heroes escape the rig? And just what is killing off the rig's beleaguered crew?

1.2 The Tides of the Moon by Joshua Pruett (2 parts)
For Hebe's first trip in the TARDIS, the Doctor and Mel take her to the nearest available 'water world' – the Moon, two billion years in the past! Its advanced humanoid inhabitants, the Gilleans, are terrorised each night by their monstrous enemies, the Sheega. Even more worrying is that in a matter of hours, this ocean world will be laid waste by the gravitational interference of the blue-green planet next door...

1.3 Maelstrom by Jonathan Morris (2 parts)
The Doctor, Mel and Hebe visit the archipelago world of Veludia, only to discover a planet beset by electromagnetic storms where three survivors traverse the seas in a ramshackle township. These survivors are 'corps' - bodies used as hosts for minds stored in the vessel’s ‘mind-drive’ - and the Doctor, Mel and Hebe are seen as welcome replacements. But there's something lurking in the waters below, something of rage and power that wishes to destroy them all: the Maelstrom!

The Dream Nexus continues the experimental nature of the Interludes, although this one furthers the set it was released with, giving a new writer a chance to thrive in a different format... The characterization and worldbuilding are top notch. 8/10

The Sixth Doctor Adventures: Water Worlds is yet another brilliant relaunch for a Doctor with an introduction of a new companion pushing the series into new territory. The theme allows for this release to have a unique feel and the fact that it ends on a cliffhanger implies that we are going to be getting more of the Doctor, Mel, and Hebe (hopefully very soon). 9/10

Indie Mac User

Water Worlds is a successful introduction for the Sixth Doctor’s latest companion. Hebe is a difficult character to love straight away, but there’s plenty of potential on show in these three stories. Perhaps, echoing the original plan for ‘Ol Sixey himself, her rude shell is a deliberate first stage in her journey. And, if the Sixth Doctor’s adventures have told us anything, it’s that Big Finish, and especially Jac Rayner, are the masters of that.

...while Colin Baker delivers some stalwart Sixth Doctoring, and especially in a couple of moments will make you watery-eyed with poignancy, the building of a new Tardis relationship in the spirit of Tegan and Nyssa marks Water Worlds out as a must-have for fans of the Sixth Doctor...
