At the time of Part One I had a bad and boring feeling about this audio. The story seemed to complicated and unusual for it's own good. At the time of Part Two the story was (at last) on a role. It was scary (er), was starting to make sense and was becoming very interesting.
By the times of parts Three and Four this story was at an all- time excellence. It was very clever, witty and chilling. The outcomes of the other characters were both predictable and unpredictable.
This audio is one of my all-time favourites to the entire series of Doctor Who adventures.
Hex is very convincing, Ace is still to smart for Her own good (excellent), The Doctor is as macabre as ever and Sue just sounds like the girl from the Exorcist.
Creepy...very creepy (rolling c.)

This is the seventy ninth release from Big Finish in their range of full cast audio adventures starring classic Doctor Whos. It stars Sylvester McCoy as Seven, Sophie Aldred as Ace and Philip Olivier as new companion Hex Schofield. There are 4 episodes, roughly 30-35 minutes each, complete with original theme music between each, and cliff hanger endings. Two episodes per disc on 2 discs, and a short booklet with some pictures of the cast and production notes.

Wow. This is a classic slice of Dark Doctor Who. Very much in the same vein as Ghostlight, it is a dark tale of dark deeds in a lonely old house. Seven, Ace and Hex are plunged into a gruesome mystery, but does the Doctor know more than he is letting on? In a tale that runs the risk of being too clever and convoluted for its own good in the forst episode, once the plot becomes clear, and the actions of the characters even clearer, this is a gripping, edge of the seat listen. With fine performances from the principles, especially McCoy who gives us an understated and manipulative Doctor to great effect, a cracking script and an excellent sound production, this is an absolute must. 5 stars.

Very similar in style - though not quite in the same class - as `Ghost Light', this science fiction / horror story finds the 7th Doctor, Ace and Hex trapped on a remote Scottish island with some bizarre characters, a bizarre time travel experiment, and a zombie on the loose...

Plot-wise `Night Thoughts' is very dense, requiring multiple listens to understand, but it's also very messy, with a large number of plot-holes and inconsistencies. In terms of mood however this is a great success, with oodles of spooky goings on, a very nasty twist ending, and a level of gruesome viciousness entirely absent from the new TV series. All in all `Night Thought's is a bit of a mess: but it is a very entertaining and interesting mess.

"Night Thoughts" is a great audio adventure. Full of atmosphere and loaded with unseen menace, made all the more effective through listening in a darkened room, with headphones. Sylvester McCoy is great as the Doctor, but then I think they all are, but he is so instantly recognisable as the Doctor on audio, as is Sophie Aldred recognisable as Ace. I can take or leave Hex, never having encountered him before, as prior to my excursion into the audio adventures I have only seen the DVDs. Nice to know the earlier Doctors are still out there, in some form at least. How nice it would be if we had a multiple Doctor story featuring McCoy, the current Doctor, David Tennant, and Paul McGann. We were deprived of the series featuring the 8th Doctor and McGann looked great in the part so it would be wonderful if he were written into a new story in the next series of Dr Who on tv. One can only live in hope! Until then we have the audios, but would be nice to see too. Maybe someone from the BBC will see this and take note! ;-)

Anyhow, to get back to this audio, it is very mysterious, which I like, and the sound effects were great, the ticking clock echoing around the old house, the eerie sounds of the birds at night, one could almost picture it, no mean feat in any audio to achieve that. I loved "Ghost Light" with its enigmatic weirdness and "Night Thoughts" was akin to that, only different, if you get my drift.
The psycho girl with the 'talking' rabbit was great! Very effective and creepy. Would love to see this done as a filmed story too.

Format: Audio CD
I like horror stories with more storyline than blood. I like good characters and a good story. And Night Thoughts at last has all these attributes.

This story is very creepy. And every single character gets a good and strong story for themselves as well. I think this cd features one of Sylvester McCoy's best performances as the Doctor.

I am a person who tries to guess what is going to happen with stories, and 99 percent of the time i am so wrong, but here i was actually right. As soon as the sujjestion of the doctor killing the young girl comes up, i knew he wouldnt really do it. He's too good a character to just do that. He is an alien but so human too. But just because i guessed this, doesnt mean the story is predictable whatsoever. The episodes all have good and scary cliffhangers, especially with me thinking Ace was going to be crippled by the bear trap, but phewwww she wasnt!

Hex is a great character for the Seventh doctor and Ace to travel with, and he doesnt destroy their well established strength. In fact he just puts the icing on the cake, with Philip Olivier's brilliant performance.

Yet again, another powerful and decnt audio, with great action and performances.
