    1. Originally posted here at Anime Radius.The one hundredth milestone release for long-running series such as Doctor Who (the audio version, naturally, not the original television program) can be approached in numerous ways: something dramatic and explosive and potentially audience dividing; something that furthers the plot more than the previous 99 releases; something that actually celebrates and showcases what’s kept the series running for so long. For 100, this two-disc set falls squarely into [...]


    2. 100 B.C. By Jacqueline Rayner 1 star- Once again, Rayner tries to pass herself of as an expert on Roman times and write Doctor Who as pulp romance for pre-teens. And do we really think the Doctor would forget something as simple as counting time backwards for B.C.? Really? Adolescent drivel.My Own Private Mozart by Robert Shearman3 stars- A comical and weird little vignette. Robert Shearman has done some fantastic stuff. This isn't his best work but it's a fluff piece and you can tell he was hav [...]



    3. Took me longer than I needed to to finish this as I first listened to this when I was packing for my L.A trip but then I listened to all four stories tonight and loved them all!I really can't wait to dive into the Sixth Doctor and Evelyn range and this set makes me excited and I loved them talking about Braxiatel and Benny in the 100 Days of the Doctor.And Bedtime stories really was creepy. Joe Lidster is a terrific writer and I loved 100BC which had me laughing in stitches.The only really weak [...]


    4. This, the one hundredth release in the main series of Big Finish Doctor Who audio dramas (wow) is an anthology of four half-hour stories linked by the loose theme of the number 100.* A comedy set in ancient Rome, concerning an event that's due to happen in 100 BC, but that the Doctor's presence may have put in peril. Evelyn's scheme is a bit ridiculous (as a historian, you'd think she'd know why it wouldn't work), but, on the whole it's a good bit of fun.* The Doctor attends Mozart's one hundred [...]


    5. This is a quartet of stories featuring the Sixth Doctor and Dr. Evelyn Smythe; each centered around the number 100.1) 100 BC. Doctor Evelyn Smythe and the Sixth Doctor find themselves Rome about 100 BC where they attempt to bring about either the patriarchal society we all know and love, or an idealistic matrifocal society. Somehow caused by Julius Cesaror his sister.2) My Own Private Wolfgang. Somehow Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart has been made immortal his genetic clones.did I mention the clones wer [...]


    6. I really enjoyed this one. Four absoultely wonderful stories with the Doctor and Evelyn. They go back in time and face the paradox that Julius Ceasar might be a woman. They visit Mozart and his clones. There's a creepy shapeshifter killing a family (with an extra great perfromance by Maggie Stables) and lastly a 100 days when the doctor is facing the end of his life. Evelyn makes some rather wonderful statements about how regeneration is like becoming a brownie and says how fun Bernice Summerfie [...]


    7. These four short stand-alone stories are some of the most delightful Who ever produced. Made to celebrate 100 episodes of Big Finish Audio's Doctor Who continuation, they highlight some of the Doctor's and the show's best qualities. Plus, they all four contain Evelyn, who's up there with Ace and Jamie for my very favorite companion (as Six is up there with Three, Nine and Eleven for favorite Doctor though if Capaldi ever gets a good script, look out!).


    8. Just the opposite from my last Big Finish review, (check out travelingthevortex for more thoughts). These four short vignettes are good. (Well, the first one is merely okay, the second and fourth ones are good. The third, "Bedtime Story" is hands down one of the best audios I have EVER listened too. I don't have enough words to describe how awesome this one is.


    9. All collections of short stories are a mixed bag, but the final two stories are the best of the four. Well worth a listen, especially for Maggie Stables' performance in the final stories where she excels.



    10. 100 BC is another pure historical play: the Sixth Doctor and Evelyn get all mixed up with whether or not they have accidentally-on-purpose prevented Julius C


    11. Instead of some huge multi-Doctor story for their 100th release, Big Finish went with a collection of four short stories featuring Six and Evelyn, each having something to do with the number 100.
