another audio adventure for the eighth doctor who, and his companions charley pollard and c'rizz. This story follows on from the earlier one memory lane and takes place before the series of adventures featuring the eighth doctor and lucie miller.
It's a four part story, each episode running for twenty five minutes. In this tale, a mishap in c'rizz's room on the tardis plunges the tardis crew into deadly danger, as they travel into a very strange place further than they've ever gone before. The doctor and charley end up in a citadel where a group of people struggle to keep back invaders from beyond, and meantime c'rizz, separated from them, is being taught by a strange man to use his mental abilities to their full potential, and to punish wrongdoers. Can the doctor and his friends get back to the world they know? And what are the hidden secrets of this place?
And will everyone make it home?
An interesting story. It exists to tie up a few loose ends in the range, but it also manages to be a good story in it's own right. There is a lot going on here, though, and you may need to listen to it more than once to get everything straight. The supporting cast and characters could be rather cliched, but do manage to rise above that. The three regulars are absolutely excellent, paul mcgann getting some wonderful dialogue that he delivers with relish. And you won't forget some of what happens to charley and c'rizz here anytime soon.
each disc ends with the usual interviews with the cast. be aware that those on the first disc do give away a few things about episodes three and four, so you may want to save them till later.
An interestingly differnet audio. Not the easiest one to get into, but it has lots to recommend it.
