Yvonne Hartman isn’t on my Doctor Who favorites list. In truth, she’s actually on the “other” list. For that reason alone, this title was the one I was looking forward to the least. Even less than UNIT: Extinction. But we all know what happened when I listened to that box set! So could Big Finish do the unthinkable twice and redeem Yvonne Hartman in my eyes?

The Seventh Doctor Novel Adaptations is one of my favorite Big Finish ranges. Its the only series in my opinion that does the partnership of Seven/Benny (and occasionally Ace) true justice. Nothing at all like the mess that is The New Adventures of Bernice Summerfield. But did Theatre of War continue the trend started in Love and War, The Highest Science and most recently, Damaged Goods or did it fall flat like a bad b-movie play?

After the universally loved and critically acclaimed Heaven Sent, the deck against Hell Bent was stacked so high, I couldn’t help but drop my expectations just to give it a fighting chance. But before I tackle Hell Bent, I’d just like to take a moment to express my deepest sympathies to anyone who was unable to recognize I was being facetious with the “Bad” section for Heaven Sent last week and that most of my criticisms were little more than jokes designed to poke fun at nitpickers and were in no way meant to be taken seriously by any fan. I mean I started the section with a sarcastic “seriously”. Oh well, now that that’s out of the way; let’s take a look at what Hell Bent brought to the table that is Series 9.

It’s always a challenge stepping outside of the comfort zone. It’s often a case of high risk, high reward. You can either crash or burn quite hard like Sleep No More, or you can come out looking like the best thing to happen to the world since [insert really cool advanced gadget]. Unfortunately though, there is absolutely no way to predict how successful your attempt at creativity is going to be until after the fact.
