    Simply one of the best Doctor Who stories in any medium Language and humanity lived in peace long before either of them was sentient. But all that has changed now as a language based economy, an ambitious dictionary project, a rogue linguist and a lexicographic AI are caught up in a storm of words The Sixth Doctor is the perfect foil for a tale that is so much about language, words and the English language and Nicola Bryant s Peri, complete with dodgy US accent, is the perfect foil to him Simply one of the best Doctor Who stories in any medium Language and humanity lived in peace long before either of them was sentient.

    Very Anglo centric Ish is a living meme that tries to take over the lexicon of the language only to slam into the colorful wall that is the Doctor.

    The highest of high concepts here is almost pulled off This story is a story about words, in a very literal way Words are characters Words are places Words are obsessions Words may ust be everything there is.New writer Philip Pascoe stunningly manages to hold this thing aloft by keeping the wordplay constantly swirling and leaving you just enough of a taste of implicit logic to allow you to feel like it all makes sense And the Sixth Doctor s pomposity works brilliantly in the context.But i The highest of high concepts here is almost pulled off This story is a story about words, in a very literal way Words are characters Words are places Words are obsessions Words may ust be everything there is.New writer Philip Pascoe stunningly manages to hold this thing aloft by keeping the wordplay constantly swirling and leaving you just enough of a taste of implicit logic to allow you to feel like it all makes sense And the Sixth Doctor s pomposity works...

    Well this is an interesting story It is a good story but probably the most confusing story i have ever listened to Many parts in this story are confusing as hell And the ending is..as you guessed it Confusing, even though it was very confusing i actually enjoyed the story The plot is smart and quite good but is confusing But it does have another problem The cliffhanger for part 2 is probably the most stupid and unimaginative cliffhanger i have ever heard or seen Other than the 2 downside Well this is an interesting story It is a good story but probably the most confusing story i have ever listened to Many parts in this story are confusing as hell And the ending is..as you guessed it Confusing, even though it was very confusing i actually enjoyed the story The plot is smart and quite good but is confusing But it does have another problem The cliffhanger fo...

    This serial gets too caught up in its own wordplay to actually form a decent story.

    When it comes to the Big Finish audio dramas, some are fantastic e.g Spare Parts , and then others are this one I thought I was really going to like this story, which is what may have let me down so much I like the concept of linguistics as being an active force that can infect or alter someone physically, mentally, etc It s one of the reasons I was really into Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson I was gearing up for a Doctor Who style story in this vein, but it ultimately just fizzled for me When it comes to the Big Finish audio dramas, some are fantastic e.g Spare Parts , and then others are this one I thought I was really going to like this story, which is what may have let me down so much I like the concept of linguistics as being an active force that can infect or alter someone physically, mentally, ...

    The blurb that comes with this Big Finish audio says the script came unsolicited Fortunately it was spotted as it is quite a special sort of Doctor Who story and a perfect fit for Big Finish, being all about language The action takes place at a big event for lexicographers where bad things start to happen a major speaker is found dead, and most of the participants soon find themselves unable to say anything other than ish Lots of lovely words in this how about the Omniverbum and som The blurb that comes with this Big Finish audio says the script came unsolicited Fortunately it was spotted as it is quite a special sort of Doctor Who story and a perfect fit for Big Finish, being all about language The action takes place at a big event for lexicographers where bad things start to happen a major speaker is found dead, and most of the participants soon find themselves unable to say anything other than ish Lots of lovely words in this...

    As Dr Seuss said, If you wish to make a wish, you may swish for fish with my ish wish dish.This one was decent I d actually give it a 3.5 if it were an option It smacked alot of a Christopher Bidmead story and I somewhat suspect that was intentional ALOT of technical stuff and crazy ass philosophy A very clever concept for a story Definately a massive fan wank for english pedants and sesquipidalians with all the massive words, word play and grammar nonsense I like what they were trying As Dr Seuss said, If you wish to make a wish, you may swish for fish with my ish wish dish.This one was decent I d actually give it a 3.5 if it were an option It smacked alot of a Christopher Bidmead story and I somewhat suspect that was intentional ALOT of technical stuff and crazy ass philosophy A very clever...
