I loved this story. It was twisting, includes a fabulous plot twist worthy of the Who stinger, a great setting, a returning villain in the shape of the Krill (from the book Storm Harvest) though in subdued form, and an a few great ideas surrounding the painting of the Scream itself. Ace excels here, as does the ever reliable Sylvester McCoy but its Geoffrey Beevers' masterful performance as the enigmatic Mr Seta that steals it. Thoroughly recommended to all - especcially the fans that will revel in certain continuities from other sources. 4 out of 5!
It's quite hard, I'm finding, to review this story without giving away spoilers, so this may sound a bit cryptic, but bear with me.
The mad people in this story sound reeeealllly insane! And that's a good thing in this story, believe me.
The bad guys sound like you wouldn't want to meet them in a dark alley; or even an alley fully lit, to be honest.
And the Doctor, and Ace (and some other people who pop up who have met the Doctor and Ace before - but don't worry if you haven't) are in fine form.
This is a great story - alien planet, strange goings on, new bad guys, familiar bad guys, alien presences that have been waiting for their moment for revenge, evil plots so convoluted you would think they'd have to write them down to remember them, weird people, lots of gory deaths, and at the end - well, the Doctor and Ace trundle off in the Tardis again for another adventure. But that's the way it's always supposed to be in Doctor Who, isn't it?
Great story; great characters; great writing; great sound effects - wonderful listening. Can't go wrong.
The Doctor and Ace travel to the dust planet of Duchamp 331 in the future to, erm, `rescue' Edvard Munch's famous painting `The Scream', which history tells is about to vanish in mysterious circumstances. They are soon thrown in to an adventure driven by those `mysterious circumstances' as they come up against old foes, old friends and an old friend in a very different guise.
After high profile outings for the Daleks and Cybermen, the Brigadier and the Eighth Doctor, there is a surprise return of two old Who faces that really slipped under the radar. Caroline John, better known as Liz Shaw from Jon Pertwee's first series makes an appearance as the gleefully over the top Madame Slavadori. It's a terrific performance, and a welcome return to the Whoniverse. The second surprise is Geoffrey Beevers (Caroline John's real life husband) as a certain Mr. Seta. Fans of the program will instantly recognise from the actor and the pseudonym the identity of the returning villain. And Beevers does not disappoint. His suave tones drip with menace, and he provides a truly memorable villain.
McCoy and Aldred once again shine as Seven and Ace. McCoy has a lot of fun with dark and ominous pronouncements, and Aldred clearly relishes playing Ace again and running around kicking some alien @rse. The chemistry between them is, as always, excellent.Read more ›
