Last of the Cybermen (#199)

Big Finish Main Range

Another in the trilogy of “misplaced” Doctors – this time with old ‘sixy’ replacing the 2nd Doctor. That is a perfect parallel to me and Zoe and Jamie (well, Zoe, anyway) figure it out pretty quickly. She’s a lot less suspicious than Jo Grant was, that’s for sure! Guess that comes from being a genius, which she actually states in the story! As far as Cybermen stories go, this isn’t the best one Big Finish has done and definitely isn’t the worst by far. I rather enjoyed it as yet another human scientist betrays the species without a clue about the true nature of the Cybermen – pretty typical of a 2nd Doctor story, I thought. Lankey is a great character, too! Along with Captain Frank and Findel. Zennox was by far the least interesting, we discover, as everyone is something else you just didn’t know about. The story is a just a fun romp reminiscent of the 2nd Doctor era with the 6th Doctor in place. Very fun!
