The plot of the Big Finish audio adventure sounds like an opening of a punch line, with The Seventh Doctor, Ace and Bernice that really is the case with this humorous tale. I’ve only read Human Nature as part of the Virgin New Adventures range, so I’m not too familiar with Bernice. Paul Cornell is a British writer of science fiction and fantasy prose, comics and television. He's been Hugo Award-nominated for all three media, and has won the BSFA Award for his short fiction, and the Eagle Award for his comics.

The Scourge are emotional parasites who exist in a hellish dimension where people are eternally tortured without being allowed to die so that the Scourge can feed off their pain, despair, depression and horror. They have the ability to hypnotise and resemble Black Mantises. They apparently made contact with the Doctor while he dreamed on the Astral plane. This is the best Big Finish performance I have heard from Sylvester yet. Frankly some of his others have been a bit lacking at times. Like Tom, I get the impression that McCoy would rather be acting on screen and being more active.

This episode, written by Paul Cornell, was the first Big Finish audio t. The Scourge turn out to feed on despair, and have inspired much of human religion (most notably the idea of hell, which is very very real and full of hungry Scourge). They've enlisted the Doctor as their servant. Seven tries to play cat and mouse with them, but they manage to transform him into one of their own, sending his morphed body into a deep coma and absorbing his mind into their collective consciousness.

A solid and scary New Adventures style story that find the Doctor, Ace, and Bernice Summerfield at a hotel where three conflicting conventions are meeting and the Doctor is a playing a chess game with a gang of interdimensional aliens.

The story is at times, creepy and haunting with some solid twists and great explorations of the characters. Lisa Bowerman turns in a good performance and there's some nice bits of humor worked in. The Doctor does get a bit shouty at times, but still the plot works and there are some thought provoking ideas that work their way through this very spooky tale.

I had a hard time winning this particular episode on eBay since the Bernice Summerfield plays are popular. After finally getting my hands on a copy I wonder what all the fuss is about.

Other than a few funny lines such as the classic response to the statement: "There is nothing that man was not meant to know" (her answer "Except two women at the same time.") I just don't find her an interesting character. Maybe I didn't give the audio enough of a chance but I don't see the "there" there.

The Doctor himself is rather amusing, negotiating the surrender of the planet earth, along with meticulous paperwork. The telegraphing of the fact that he is constantly outsmarting various monsters really falls flat since it comes during part two when we know of course that whatever he is planning has to fail at that point but will recover later.

His line about monsters being afraid of him predates the famous Tennent line to the young Reinette in "The Girl in the Fireplace." but I think we see the Doctor too clever by a half here.

The Scourge as a villain just doesn't seem to do it for me. Maybe if I was listening to them as they came out I would have liked it more, maybe if my expectations were not higher since Bowerman is very good in other audios that would have made a difference but this story just fell flat for me.

You can't complete your collection without this one but I can't decide if you should hold it for near the end or just grab it to get it over with.

The Doctor, Ace and Benny arrive at a hotel in Kent where three seemingly unrelated events -a psychic's personal appearance, a time experiment and a cross-stitch convention--unleashes a scourge that could mean the end of humanity.

This audio is based on a series of books published by Virgin in the 1990s. Whether or not you like it depends on how much you enjoyed the New Adventures novels.

Personally, I wasn't a huge fan. While there were some good stories, many seemed to delight in torturing both the TARDIS crew and the reader. The Doctor was portrayed as a rather heartless manipulator while Ace was ultraviolent with an even bigger chip on her shoulder than she had in the TV series. Professor Bernice Summerfield simply added fuel to the fire with her caustic comments.

Overall, this story just doesn't do a lot for me. The Doctor is too smug and mysterious, Ace is depressingly world-weary and Benny seems a bit of a third wheel. The ending--which has evil being driven back by chanting a mantra--is a bit silly as well.

Strangely enough, I have become quite the fan of the audio Benny. Lisa Bowerman infuses the character with toughness and vulnerability, giving her a smart-ass yet likable attitude. Although Benny has been featured in only a handful of Doctor Who audios, she has her own audio series (which predate the Doctor Who audios) that is worth investigating.

2.75 stars.
