Dark Journey’s End! Series 2 Finale

This is it, the finale of Doctor Who Dark Journey Series 2. So far this season we’ve had emotional rollercoasters, amazing cameos from past companions and even a family reunion of sorts. Dangling threads from season one about the Noble Project were answered and shocking revelations made. There was a lot of action, a lot of heart and a lot of quips. So where do we stand now?

This episode, more of a epilogue, finds our hero alone in the tardis. Well, not quite alone, he does have Fred after all. But can a man who has lived as long as the Doctor ever truly be alone?

Dark Journey takes us to the end of the… well, dark journey. This is a much subtler episode than the previous ones, the bulk of it just being dialogue between the two aforementioned characters. They share some of the most poignant moments of the entire series and this episode really shines as a great example of the writing, acting and production from Chalmers and Tamburro. The Doctor is still making jokes, but that’s just to hide the fact that he has lost hope. In the end he must make a decision, to give up or to keep going. What will he decide? Listen for yourself and find out.

Thanks to Mike and Andrew for a great Series 2. I can’t help but feel proud of this season, especially since they dedicated it to me! I look forward to reporting on (and listening to) what’s coming next for Dark Journey.

Dark Journey- The Passing Of Light

The Passing Of Light, episode four of Dark Journey Series 2, hit the net today premiering on The Droids Canada podcast. Has it really been four weeks since episode one? Time flies when you’re having fun! But some of our favourite characters aren’t having a good time. Things are desperate for the Doctor and Sherlock as they battle evil demonic forces. With so much tragedy in his past, when the Doctor is offered a chance to change it, will he be able to resist? What if it means turning on his friends?

With just two more episodes remaining this series, a lot is revealed about the nasty bad guys today. More importantly, toward the end of the episode the Cool Beans Doctor really gets to shine. One of my favourite Matt Smith moments was during the The Pandorica Opens. The scene where the Doctor stands before a mass gathering of his enemies and gives his impassioned speech has long been a favourite of mine. Well, Andrew captured the defiant essence of that moment and delivered a soliloquy of his own that was the highlight of The Passing Of Light. But if you remember Pandorica, that speech ultimately didn’t help the 11th Doctor. How will the Cool Beans Doctor fair? Will he have a similar outcome? I guess we will just have to wait until next week’s episode to find out

 

 

Dark Journey Review- Case of the Poisoned Sky

Episode number two of AM Audio Media’s Doctor Who Dark Journey was released today on The Geeko and what can I say? Only this… HOLY COW. This will be a short review as I can barely say a word without spoiling major developments. Over the past year they have been building up toward this episode, we finally learn just what the Noble Project is and why the ‘Cool Beans’ Doctor is so dark. There was a surprise cameo from one of his companions last week and we get to see more about them and how their fate ties in with the Noble project and the Doctor’s most hated enemy.

So without going into spoilers, let’s talk about the performances. Once again the music was fantastic, hitting all the highs and lows of the drama. It perfectly accompanied Andrew Chalmers’ emotional and passionate performance as the ‘Cool Beans’ Doctor is forced to go further into the murky depths of his soul than ever before.

If you haven’t listened to this one yet, do yourself a favour and get on it man! And then listen to it second time. I know I will be.

 

Dark Journey Series 2 Premieres

The wait between seasons is always my least favourite part of fandom. It seems like it has been forever and a day since we last saw, I mean heard, the Cool Beans Doctor getting himself into a lot of trouble. Well, the wait is over, AM Audio Media premiered episode 1 of Series 2 today! Listen and enjoy. After the episode MA and Andrew chat with the Gallifrey Stands folks!
