This short review is going to be about Scream of the Cybermen. I have chose this story because this is one of my favourites because it is full of excitement such as the scene where the seventh doctor meets the eighth doctor for the first time and it always reminds me of the scene from The Day of the Doctor where the tenth doctor meets the eleventh doctor and it gives me the chills (but in a good way). Another reason why i like this story is because it features one of my top 5 enemies, The Cybermen, and i think the voices are more sinister than the ones from the actual show. I also like the ending of the story where it leaves everyone with a question “Which Doctor will be sent back to their own timestream?”, but poor Maria 😦

I love DWOA, The VFX, Music and voice acting is brilliant, but my favourite DWOA is
I love this episode because i think it has the best VFX in all FA. I also like every other 8th doctor and 1st doctor FA because we didnt see much of McGann, i love the audio books because you can visualise it yourself but i like to see the adventures as it is more descriptive and fun
Although you see loads of Hartnell you do not see his adventures in colour but this episode shows me what i may have seen
I really enjoyed this episode especially the cliffhanger on part 3 as i would ask for more and more, and the starting scene with the ship battle with cybermen really pulled me into the scene and when Maria tells the story of her home planet really makes me feel there on Mizagoria

Heart of steel, the three part serial in series 5 is possibly my favourite episode produced so far. This is for a number of different reasons. One, the excellent CGI work created by Chris Clark, you get a sense of scale, how huge the adventure is with them. Two, it’s a wonderful script written by M Justin Parsons, it’s something we have never seen before, a Cyberman who wants peace! The 6th Doctor going through the conversion process and even the 8th Doctor destroying the fleet without even thinking about it. Three, the Cybermen voiced by Rex. It’s an interesting twist on the new voices; the script also makes them seem very much like computers, processing data. Finally, the sets and the lighting really tie the thing together making it look cold and metallic. It’s a definite step up from the last series and it only gets better from there!

Doctor Who Online Adventures have made a successful transition from their original YouTube channel and have continued to make some of the most high-quality action figure videos on the internet. One of the things that stands out to me is their impeccable use of CGI, which is very detailed and adds an extra detail that most similar videos lack. The stories are very enjoyable. A personal favourite of mine was ‘Heart of Steel,’ which introduced some very interesting themes for the Cybermen in particular. Another of the most outstanding features is the sets, creating a realistic, highly detailed environment that you would not normally expect from a figure production. Overall, it is clear that Brendan Sheppard and his team have made a series of high-quality, well thought-out productions that use action figures to their true potential. I am really looking forward to seeing what they will produce in the future.
