You ever think 'people should have less free time?'

I would recommend this one if you're at all interested in these videos and only want to check out one. (so far obviously)

This one felt the most like it could have been a Doctor Who episode, wouldn't work for a serial I'd say, more a one-off.

In fact I wouldn't mind seeing a story with this basic premise done as an episode, it has some similarities with other stories even, like some aspects of Silence in the Library.

Not perfect, but this would fill a persons Who needs in the dark times I think and I can see how these productions could grow into Big Finish.

They just keep getting better I'd say, this one is definitely my favourite so far.

The first one was quite dull, the second had nice acting moments and some more going on, but this one was just a nice little story that had me intrigued pretty much all the way through.

Either bigger budget or better use of the budget by having a train station set, the fact that it felt quite set-y and strange worked with the premise perfectly.

The Stranger: In Memory Alone 

Gross. Nice enough ending.

How did The Stranger and Miss Brown get trapped in this in the first place though?

The Stranger: In Memory Alone 

So the robots/suit turned the dead astronaut into a type of hologram, for some reason, to keep him alive in a way to finish the mission?

Yeah, to fulfil his dying wish which was just to live a normal mundane life. A bit silence in the library-y.

This one certainly feels the most who-y.

The Stranger: In Memory Alone 

I saw a boom mic shadow!

For the rest so far this is an intriguing little story. This one I could see the most as an episode of Doctor who, honestly.

Not so much the production, although the limited locations and their strangeness helps, but the story.

Although I guess not in the serial era, this is really more a one-off story.

Show thread

The Stranger: In Memory Alone 

This is better use of a budget, or maybe they have a bigger budget, so far they only have a train station set and the inside of a train as a set, but it feels much less 'shot in the backyard' and the train station set's artificiality works for the strangeness of the story.

UNDER ATTACK the robot's display reads during a simple conversation, yep, that's how I feel talking to strangers too.

Show thread

The Stranger: In Memory Alone 

Yeah, mannequin, so maybe not a model.

Robots! This is what I wand out of my '90s who knock offs.

Ooh, hey, it's Per-- Miss Brown. There he is. Mannequins are turning into the Stranger and his Companion and the robots have something to do with it. I'm intrigued.

Mannequins walking up as people with no memory is very Twilight-zoney.

I'd suspect Autons if this wasn't definitely not Doctor Who.

Show thread

The Stranger: In Memory Alone 

I didn't do it last week, but it's time for The Stranger again.

Ooh, yeah, these are some nice shitty '90s computer vfx.

First one by Nicholas Briggs, him who's the executive producer on all Big Finish audios, he writes all the rest starting with this one.

I think this building is a model and I think the person laying on the ground is literally a kid's Barbie-esque doll? It may represent a mannequin instead of a human, though.

There they are! What a twist.

What's the UN budget for canoes like you think?

Good screaming attempt, but pales in comparison to the Vaughn.

"UFO's what are those?"

"Well, I don't know for sure, that's kind of the point."

:tardis: 6x14: "The Invasion" (episode four) 

Just show us the cybermen already, no wonder this is "the invasion" in quotes, it's all build up and they'll probably only "invade" properly in the last episode.

This guy is a good yeller. Top tier screaming.

:tardis: 6x14: "The Invasion" (episode four) 

I'm on a bit of delay. This art is very representative of what the characters look like and the animation while limited does the job fine.

Who is the enemy? They did say "you will obey", but then the guy also mentioned being "converted." But it's probably neither of those two.
