I don't know how to rate this. Dorney's story was BRILLIANT! Nev's story was totally unlistenable. The last story was VERY first season Missy, which was fun but felt a bit out of place because she seemed like her more developed self in the earlier episodes, and episode one was just a bit bland.
When we mentioned on twitter that it was disappointing that the Missy boxset was all male writers someone asked why it made a difference. The first story had five male characters and one female character

I adore Missy (Michelle Gomez). She is, perhaps, my favorite incarnation of Doctor Who in the history of the entire show. Literally, every episode of the Peter Capaldi era that featured her was immediately made better by her being in it. Gomez brings this wonderful energy to the role, balancing genuine pathos with the Master's typical crazy, evil behavior. So, when Big Finish Productions announced they were giving Missy her own series, I was absolutely excited for it. Four stories with Missy as ...more

1.1 Spoonful of Mayhem by Roy Gill
La storia di Missy inizia con lei imprigionata nella Londra vittoriana, costretta a diventare governante di due brillanti ragazzi, arrivando con il vento... no, quella era Mary Poppins.
Missy deve riuscire a sfuggire al suo 'agente di custodia' e fare la governante è la sua copertura. Perché Missy non fa mai nulla per caso.

Missy e il Monaco sono una coppia splendida, anche se nessuno dei due lo ammetterebbe mai.

A Spoonful of Mayhem von Roy Gill
Mal ein ziemlich anderer Ansatz für ein Big Finish Hörspiel. Etwas abgedreht, also passend für Missy. Andererseits ist es natürlich auch ein No-brainer, Missy eine Tim Burton Version von Mary Poppins auf den Leib zu schreiben.
Etwas nervig ist, dass das Geschehen ständig von den Kindern erklärt werden muss. Ansonsten aber ein durchaus netter Einstand für Missy.

This might be one of the most fun things Big Finish has done so far.
Missy is simply awesome and especially her team-up with the Monk had me laughing out loud.
The banter between the two Timelord renegates was delightful.

There is some play with the role of Missy as "evil Poppins", she is deliciously murderous and deceptive. Plus, some of the stories can get quite absurd and meta- which for me is a good thing.

If you liked her in the TV series, you will also like her here.

Bien dans l'ensemble, avec un épisode particulièrement inintéressant, pas à la hauteur des épisodes télévisées et assez égal à la parution du recueil de nouvelles Doctor Who: The Missy Chronicles. Une trop grande utilisation de discours méta-narratif dans tout le boîtier cependant, Missy ne devrait pas ressembler à un Deadpool.

Absolutely mind blowingly great! And incredibly funny too. This is my favourite BigFinish AudioDrama release of 2019.

Missy... alone, unleashed and unfettered. What does she get up to when the Doctor isn’t around?

Well, Missy has a plan. And to carry it out, she’s going to have to break some rules. And people. And planets. Look out universe, Missy is on a mission. And nobody is going to stop her…

A fine start for everyone's favourite Master of Mischief on Big Finish! Series One centres around Missy plotting to find herself a TARDIS to once again be able to traverse time and space freely. Along the way, we are treated with Victorian children, unresolved murders, slaves working on a mysterious dig ... and The Meddling Monk, as played by Rufus Hound.

A Spoonful of Mayhem: 92/120

A fine opening, embracing the idea of Missy being a dark version of Mary Poppins. The acting and pacing are fine,

Spoonful of Mayhem by Roy Gill - 4/5
Charming little story to start off the set. Nothing spectacular, just a fun way to reintroduce Missy. Missy gets caught for a crime she has yet to commit. Her prison … 19th century London, where she is forced to be the governess to two children. She does so with her well-known flair, while looking for a way out.

Divorced, Beheaded, Regenerated by John Dorney – 4/5
The Meddling Monk and Missy have chemistry for days and the story was brilliant. This was fun.

An enjoyable set of episodes. The first two episodes are very good, the third an experimental format-breaking episode that was challenging enough that I had to start it over in order to follow the storyline -- such as it was -- properly. It kind of falls apart in the final episode. That one just didn't work for me. It felt like a bit of an anti-climax, or an episode-long set-up for Series Two. (Assuming there's going to be one.)

However, Michelle Gomez is outstanding here.
