Helicon Prime is the second of Big Finish's Companion Chronicles I've listened to. The format is somewhat between a true audiobook and one of Big Finish's audio plays. Frazier Hines reads the story and plays the parts of Jaime, and, surprisingly well, the Second Doctor (I didn't realise it was Frazier at all at first).

Helicon Prime is perhaps not the most challenging Doctor Who story ever written but I found it to be a very enjoyable adventure for the second Doctor and Jamie.

Much of what makes Helicon Prime so entertaining to listen to is the splendid reading by Frazer Hines who, once again, manages to really capture the inflections and personality of Troughton's Doctor and bring the character to life.

I've seen some rave reviews of Helicon Prime out there; I'm afraid it didn't especially grab me, as I thought the plot was pretty unoriginal, but I felt that the planet of Helicon itself was well portrayed and that Frazer Hines made a decent effort at catching Troughton.[return]

While the story here isn't anything spectacular, Frazier Hines reading is amazing. His impression of Patrick Troughton's Doctor is spot on, and he's just a joy to listen to.
Anne Barwell
Frazer Hines does a great job. His Patrick Troughton is spot on. I always loved 2nd Doctor/Jamie adventures and this doesn't disappoint.
Debra Cook
It was okay. Nothing gripping. Though Frazier Hines does a great Patrick Troughton imitiation.
