Format: Audio CD
This is a wonderfully, mysterious, dark and occasionally gruesome story. Cant help but wonder if that's the reason it was never used on TV or maybe the finer points were added at a later date by Marc Platt who is one of this ranges finest writers. I love this story, usually I don't like the bleak stuff but its done right here.

I thought I might be suffering from Sixth Doctor Overload this month with two releases but he continues to impress. Nicola, as always threatens to steal the show. Here, she is given a real chance to shine, and she rises to challenge brilliantly.

Steve Foxon's music is also very creepy and translates the atmosphere very well. The music here is very powerful when used, usually to signify the presence of a threat. And the silence is very effective also.

Positive.
1)Colin Baker & Nicola Bryant both give convincing performances as The Sixth Doctor & Peri.
2)Great adapted story by Marc Platt from a lost tv script by Barbara Clegg.
3)Chilling tense atmospheric tale.

Negative.
None.

CD Info.
2xCD of a 2 episode story, Running time 120 minutes, Trailers, Behind the scenes interviews.

Trivia.
1)Barbara Clegg wrote the Fifth Doctor tv story Enlightenment & another Lost story Fifth Doctor, Nyssa & Tegan adventure The Elite that was adapted by John Dorney.
2)Tam Williams (Tom) played an extra in Remembrance Of The Daleks.
3)The cd cover was slightly altered as the first image of Velez was apparently to disturbing.

Review.
Christopher Marlowe is attempting to write his novel Doctor Faustus when a ancient darkness descends upon him in a gruesome form named Velez who seeks a stone bladed Aztec dagger.

The Sixth Doctor & Peri are caught up in the 16th century Elizabethan England as an near collision course with an Asteroid has resulted in the Tardis crash landing in this era.

Is Velez & the Doctor's sudden arrivals linked by fate? & why is this monstrosity named Velez after this stone bladed Aztec dagger in the first place for anyway?

These event's are connected as the Doctor attempts to rescue Marlowe from the clutches of the insane Velez & confront the Omnim as the point of entry approaches.

Timelord Thoughts.

One of my favourite Lost Stories.

Adapted by the excellent Marc Platt from a tv script by Barbara Clegg this is a gruesome macabre tale set in Elizabethan England.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Paul Tapner TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 17 May 2010
Format: Audio CD
Another Doctor who lost story audio. These are a series of audios featuring Colin Baker as the Doctor and Nicola Bryant as his companion Peri. They take stories written for the show in the 1980's that never got to the tv screen and adapt them into audio plays.

This one has two long episodes, roughly fifty seven and sixty five minutes each, one two each of the two discs.

Set in 16th century london, Kit Marlowe is suffering from writer's block when a strange man offers him the inspiration he needs. In exchange for his help to find a stone blade from south america.

The TARDIS makes a forced landing in the city after nearly colliding with an asteroid. The Doctor and Peri are caught up with the locals, Marlowe, the authorities, and the quest for blade. An item that could spell doom for planet earth...

The two episodes here are very long, and I do prefer shorter ones, but these can be forgiven much because there's so many delights and memorable moments in each. London of the time was a dangerous and dirty place, and the script vividly creates that atmosphere. All the characters are well rounded and very believable and also very well played. Marlowe's desire to write comes over superbly thanks to that.

Judicious use of sound and music creates great atmosphere, and there are even a couple of bits of comedy thatcould have flopped but instead do manage to make you smile. Plus some very interesting aliens. It's perhaps good that this didn't get to the screen because audio can conjure up strange other astral realms, london in the rain, and crowd scenes better than bbc tv on a budget ever could.

A rich and satisfying epic and one that should benefit from future listenings.

There are roughly ten minutes of interviews with cast and crew at the end of each disc. These are worth it for an insight into the writing process that goes into this range. And a trailer for the next lost story at the start of disc one.

Format: Audio CD
Number six of the 'Lost Stories' mini-series is a vibrant and highly entertaining historical adventure for Colin Baker's Sixth Doctor and his lycra-clad American Botanist travelling companion, Perpegillium 'Peri' Brown.

After colliding with an asteroid in space, the TARDIS arrives in murky 16th Century London, where playwright Kit Marlowe is attempting to write his seminal Renaissance drama Doctor Faustus. However, behind the scenes there lurks the shadowy and physically monstrous form of mysterious Spaniard Velez, who along with his dwarfish minion Iguano is using the unstable Marlowe to help him locate an ancient Aztec artefact, which he believes will be vital in whatever nefarious business he is engaged in...

So who are 'The Omnim' and what are they waiting for? Why is Velez so horrifying to behold? And what is the significance of the astral plane to which The Doctor and Peri are suddenly transported? As the point of entry approaches, the travellers must confront the Omnim and rescue Marlowe from the clutches of a madman...

Marc Platt has taken Barbara Clegg's unfinished script and created a fascinating adventure; the Elizabethan setting is fantastically realised within the limitations of audio, and the presence of such historical luminaries as Sir Francis Walsingham give the play a real edge. Highly recommended and absolutely excellent.
