4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By R. Thomas VINE VOICE on 6 May 2010
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.

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.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
A superbly dark visit to Elizabethan England and the shadow haunting playwright Kit Marlowe; his inspiration, his temptation and England's doom... 5* (2 episodes, 2 CDs, 120 min)

A strange phenomenon surrounding a wandering planetoid brings the Doctor and Peri to London just a few years after the defeat of the Spanish Armada. But the Doctor isn't the first alien to arrive, something else is stirring; ancient, cold as stone and thirsting for blood, it fell to Earth many ages since and the Doctor has seen its work before, long ago...

Christopher `Kit' Marlowe, leading playwright and English government spy, has other problems. His latest play will depict the legend of Doctor Faustus, a philosopher who sold his soul for dark knowledge. But Marlowe is running out of ideas - until inspiration visits him in the shape of sinister Spaniard Don Lorenzo Velez, a man so deeply lost in dark secrets that even Death rejects him...

This is a dramatic Sixth Doctor `Lost Story' written by Marc Platt in the best `Gothic' tradition and faithful to the original storyline by Barbara Clegg. Practically perfect, as written here it makes a gripping audio experience with the great script and performances combined with Steve Foxon's excellent sound design.

It's a `history-meets-the-aliens' story with alien science weaving into human supernatural beliefs, and the quality of writing and the actors place it among the very best of that genre.

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.

The knife's power is rooted in a dark alien intelligence that only the Doctor and Peri can uncover. 23 Feb. 2015
By J. D. Palmer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
In 1985 Doctor Who had become unpopular with some in the BBC who thought the show had become too violent. While the writers were preparing stories for season 23, these would eventually be scrapped for a new story arc, "Trial of a Time Lord," meant to change the tone of the show. Several of these "lost" stories, which were never made, would eventually see production as Big Finish audio dramas.

Point of Entry is one of the scripted stories that could have been part of season 23. The story centers on Kit Marlowe's dangerous relationship with a necromancer called Valez and an Aztec knife that demands sacrifice. The knife's power is rooted in a dark alien intelligence that only the Doctor and Peri can uncover.

The Elizabethan atmosphere of the story is convincing and the voice acting is excellent all around. Particularly enjoyable is Luis Soto's portrayal of the mystic Valez. While it would have been interesting to see a television version of this script, as an audio drama this script works particularly well and lends itself to a mysteriousness and darkness that would have been hard to capture on screen.
Doctor Who Meets Marlowe (Kit Marlowe, That is.) 14 Aug. 2015
By Adam Graham, Superhero and Detective Fiction Author - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This psuedo-historical explores playwrite and spy Kit Marlowe's dealing with the dark side and the occult. This story definitely leans strongly towards horror and there are a few dark scenes that lean towards being unpleasant, such as when Peri is abandoned by Marlowe.

The story has some eerie and creepy moments, but there are a few nice moments of comedy worked in. (The Doctor as "The Queen's" (i.e. Peri's wigbearer was hilarious.) Luis Soto is superb as the sinister Velez, while the rest of the guest cast performs well-enough.

I did think that they story was a bit padded and crawled in some places. For much of the story, the Doctor is left with not a lot to do. Still, it's an interesting and mostly engaging listen.
The Doctor meets one of the greatest English poets! No. No, not that one. 26 Mar. 2015
By Dione Basseri - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Once again, a Doctor Who story with a more fantasy bent...where, of course, the fantasy is just sufficiently advanced science. The Doctor and Peri crash land in old England and meet the playwright Kit Marlowe, currently writing his masterpiece, "Faust." It appears his inspiration for a story of a man who sells his soul to the Devil has some major inspiration: Kit himself! The Doctor and Peri must face down sinister cult members to save the life of the writer before he is killed and leaves his great work unfinished!

And, you know. Save the Earth, too.
