Format: Audio CD
sixth release in the third series of talking books called doctor who: the companion chronicles. these involve an actor who played a companion to the doctor in the old version of the tv show returning to the part to read a new story featuring their character in an adventure with the doctor.

the disc, like all in this range, runs for roughly seventy minutes, and has the story divided into two episodes of roughly thirty five minutes each in length. the penultimate track concludes with a clip from the forthcoming next story in the range, but does not give it's title, and the final track is a short interview with the cast and director.

also usually with these, the actor in this release does almost all the voices, but there's one other actor who does one part. well, normally they do one part, but in this case the guest actor does two.

this release is the first in the run to step outside the era of the first four doctors, as it features sarah sutton returning to the role of nyssa. she played the part alongside the fourth and fifth on tv, but the story here is set during her time with the fifth, thus other companions tegan and adric also show up. sarah sutton voices both of them. As with the doctor, she doesnt do a direct vocal impression, but does manage to imitate their speech patterns very well. the story is set somewhen between the tv stories black orchid and earthshock, and it features a race of aliens called the dar traders. they recently appeared in the seventh doctor audio the death collectors, and this is a prequel of sorts to that, but there's no need to hear one to understand the other as they both stand very much on their own.

in this story, nyssa, sometime after she left the doctro, tells a hospital patient about something that once happened to her.

I absolutely love every minute of this!

'The Darkening Eye' is a 'Doctor Who' Companion Chronicle from Big Finish starring Sarah Sutton as Nyssa. It was the first Companion Chronicle I listened to and it was a pleasure to hear it.

I had this on my birthday in May 2009 when I was getting to know Nyssa through the Big Finish audios. I already had listened to a fair amount of audio adventures with the Fifth Doctor and Nyssa from 'The Land of the Dead' to 'Time Reef' (which was the latest one at the time).

Usually CCs focus on the earlier eras of 'Doctor Who' where Big Finish can't do proper full cast audio dramas due the first three Doctors are no longer with us. This is the first time where Big Finish focuses on a companion from the Fifth Doctor era.

This features not only the Doctor and Nyssa, but also Adric and Tegan - the TARDIS team from Season 19. I have a fondness for Season 19, so it was lovely for Nyssa to tell an adventure with her friends. Like most CCs, the story is narrated in the first person and is taken from Nyssa's perspective.

Set between 'Black Orchid' and 'Earthshock', Nyssa recollects this adventure after 'Terminus' (part of 'The Black Guardian Trilogy').
