When we last saw the Eighth Doctor at the end of season four’s “To the Death”, he was…not in a happy place. Lucie Miller and Tamsin were both dead. The Doctor’s great-grandson Alex was dead. The Monk had escaped and the Doctor’s granddaughter Susan was an emotional wreck. We see the Doctor vow to somehow go back in time and rescue Lucie (and presumably Alex and Tamsin). Then the episode ended and we all looked eagerly to the resolution of this plot.
Well, it’s been a couple years now, and Big Finish have finally released “Dark Eyes”, a boxed-set that basically amounts to season five the Eighth Doctor Adventures. One would expect it to pick up where the last story left off and to see the Doctor trying to find a way to save his friends and family.
One would be wrong.
