1. Ravenous 1
"The ingredients of McGann, Walker, Hattie Morahan and Mark Bonnar is a recipe for something spectacular, all with their own energy and fantastic chemistry. Ravenous leaves us hungry for more!" Blogtor Who
10/10 "the callous kandyman certainly leaves an unpleasant after taste of sugary sweet evil" The Host Productions
"The final act of Their Finest Hour is like an audio version of a great war film" Gallifrey Archive
"it’s four enjoyable stories, with Liv Chenka fast becoming a TARDIS favourite." Cultbox
"The perfect playground for the ever moral Doctor to get caught up in… This set is entertaining from start to finish. We have 4 really imaginative and engaging stories that are up there with some of the best of the 8th Doctor" Indie Mac User
"The immense portrayals of Mark Bonnar’s Eleven and Nicholas Rowe’s Kandyman to kick start this narrative are absolutely worthy of the anticipation that preceded them, and Big Finish’s usual shining direction and sound design are wonderfully present to assure polished pieces that deliver plenty of emotional impact. 4/5" Doctor Who Reviews
“Both writers know their roles here and deliver compelling stories with satisfying twists, lashings of character and plenty of space, despite a full villain-roster, for Paul McGann’s Eighth Doctor to make his mark and drive events. Right there beside him though, Nicola Walker’s Liv Chenka feels like one of the great companions, more here than ever before. She and McGann’s Doctor together feel like an unstoppable, adorable Tardis team in Ravenous 1.” Massmovement
Having saved the universe and restored peace at home, the Doctor and Liv go in search of their friend, Helen. Following a trail of breadcrumbs through space and time they discover an unsavoury conspiracy, and an old enemy lurking in the shadows, waiting.
1.1 Their Finest Hour by John Dorney
In the early days of the Second World War a strange and elusive craft attacks British targets. Could it be a German superweapon? Churchill calls for the Doctor’s assistance and with the help of a squadron of Polish fighter pilots the TARDIS crew take to the skies to investigate.
1.2 How to Make a Killing in Time Travel by John Dorney
A disturbance in the vortex causes the TARDIS to land on the Scapegrace space station, where Cornelius Morningstar experiments in time-travel for nefarious purposes. But the Doctor’s plan to stop him winds dangerously out of control as the different agendas of criminals, murderers and alien dynasties conspire against him.
1.3 World of Damnation by Matt Fitton
Rykerzon is a maximum-security planetoid designed to hold the most dangerous criminals in the star system. The Governor plans to reform its inmates, with the help of the Kandyman. But two prisoners prove particularly troublesome: the alien fugitives known as the Eleven, and Miss Helen Sinclair.
The Doctor and Liv have finally tracked down their friend - but are they too late?
1.4 Sweet Salvation by Matt Fitton
The Eleven has the authorities in the palm of his hand and an entire world held to ransom when the Kandyman cooks up a deadly confection containing a secret ingredient. In a last-ditch attempt to prevent disaster Liv teams up with a desperate criminal, and the Doctor must decide whether Helen is still his friend.
