Doctor Who: Shroud Of Sorrow.

CD Info.
6xCD's.
Running time 7 hours.

What's The Story.
23 November, 1963. It is the day after John F. Kennedy's assassination & the faces of the dead are everywhere. PC Reg Cranfield sees his late father in the mists along Totter's Lane, while reporter Mae Callon sees her grandmother image on a coffee stain on her desk.

Timelord Thoughts.
This Audiobook adaption read by Francis Barber is written by Tommy Donbavand has some good ideas but is hampered by the overuse of humour which completely ruins the seriousness of the plot borders on farcical at times when it should be dramatic.

Tommy Donbavand writing his first Doctor Who adventure & I hope his last as he writes the Eleventh Doctor as a clown as the Doctor who seems to be on a constant manic high like he has had one to many Red Bulls.

The plot is there as the premise of a entity feeding on peoples fear, grief or negative emotions is a good one as under a more seasoned writer this would've been excellent but the inexperience of writing Doctor Who here is apparent as Donbavand doesn't know how to structure the story allowing humorous moments & drama to clash into one another instead it doesnt build the drama throwing the pace off the story.

Actress Francis Barber narrates the Audiobook version & to be fair does her best with the disappointing material shes given while the audiobook does inject some haunting incidental music & sound effects but music & effects cannot hide the incoherent tone of this story & overall Shroud Of Sorrow is one of the weaker Eleventh Doctor adventures to date.

Timelord Rating.
4/10

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By The EYE OF HORUS Editor on 22 July 2013
Across humanity's (documented) history there are a handful of periods of trauma that seeming consume the planet's hope, engaging desperation and pushing it to the edge of perilous impetuousness. The murder, or, as some historians speculate, summary execution of American President, John Fitzgerald Kennedy on the 22 November 1963 could be seen as one of those moments. A keystone in a country's and world's history from which all is measured, like hammering an infinitely high wood stake into the earth on that date and then attaching an endless piece of string to it for every life, every action and every consequence to be stretched through and attached to.

Utilising this cataclysmic event as the narrative cornerstone, Tommy Donbavand's debut DOCTOR WHO novel, SHROUD OF SORROW examines how fear, anguish and loss of love & friendship can be depressingly harmful for some but for others it can be nourishment upon which they can thrive like a bacterium or microscopic parasite.

"The Shroud will feast."

Released in two formats, printed novel and audiobook (from BBC BOOKS and AUDIOGO respectively), DOCTOR WHO - SHROUD OF SORROW is a haunting, taut and, at times, chilling adventure for the impish Eleventh Doctor and his TARDIS ("...a weary pensioner...") travelling companion, Clara Oswald as they encounter a new lifeform entity, Shroud, that not even the Time Lord is certain he can stop from their consumption of humanity. How can you kill a non-physical conceit that stretches itself across the universe like a intergaltic tapeworm, digesting sadness and grief?
