5.0 out of 5 stars Utterly delightful 18 Mar 2009
Format:Audio CD
The Key 2 Time series continues with this adventure written by Jonathan Clements - the second installment in the series. `The Destroyer of Delights' is primarily set in the Sudan in the Ninth Century, and features the return of The Doctor's key-hunting rival, The Black Guardian. At the end of the preceding adventure (The Judgement of Isskar) The Fifth Doctor and Amy were on the receiving end of assistance from an unexpected quarter, and are now hot on the trail of the fifth segment of the eponymous key.
The story has a Sinbad/Ali Baba-esque feel to it, as the Doctor's recently created companion Amy has become a slave to a money-grubbing nobleman, named... Cassim Ali Baba! Meanwhile, The Doctor is acting with the usual hesitant charm of his Fifth incarnation, and ends up as a go-between for Ali Baba and the Caliph, to whom the avaricious nobleman owes taxes.
This audio works well as both part of the Key2Time trilogy, and as a stand-alone adventure. Davison is on fine form as the deceptively nave Fifth Doctor, whilst his companion gets to take stock of her surroundings without the Timelord by her side. David Troughton is a fine actor and a Doctor Who stalwart, and Jess Robinson plays the part of lovelorn slave girl Nisrin with panache, prompting both pathos and an awareness of how the freedom we take for granted came at a price. There is some great humour too, and Clements brings out the best in his leading man as well as the guest cast. Highly recommended.

Review.
This is the second part of Key 2 Time as the Doctor & Amy continue there quest for the remaining segments when Amy is kidnapped & used for slavery by Cassim Ali Baba.

The Doctor trys to negotiate her release from Baba & try to keep the segments away from both Black & White Gaurdians as neither motives is as clear cut as they appear to be.

The Doctor & Amy try to find each other & escape off world as two ancient enemies are caught up in a long fought out war & there's still a matter of evading the Gaurdians.

This is an entertaining story by writer Jonathan Clements that is full of rich adventuring & intrigue.

Writer Jonathan Clements nails the charm of the Davison Doctor as he brings the best out of the Fifth Doctor's characteristics.

The Gaurdians are well written as neither is as good of evil as they appear that brings a mystery to there motives of attempting to obtaining the Key To Time.

This is a highly enjoyable fast paced adventure & great middle part of the Key 2 Time Trilogy.

By Victor HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This is the hundred and eighteenth release from Big Finish in their range of full cast audio adventures starring classic Doctor Whos. It stars Peter Davison as Five. There are four episodes, roughly 25-30 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. There are some interviews with cast and crew at the end of each disc. This is the second of a trilogy of adventures called Key2Time, following up on the Fourth Doctor's adventures with that artefact, and Five's brushes with the Black Guardian.

This adventure is a decided improvement over the previous `Judgement of Isskar'. Five and Amy cast in their lot with an unlikely ally, and are cast back into the ancient Sudan to find the next segment of the Key to Time. An interesting story unfolds in which the Doctor has to work out where the segment is, and somehow keep it from both the Black and the White Guardians. The Black Guardian is in particular an interesting character here, played with a sly wink by the ever reliable David Troughton. I loved the idea of the White Guardian not being as morally right and the Black Guardian not being as morally wrong as their titles would suggest, but rather they are representations of two equally valid viewpoints and it would be disastrous for the universe if either one of them get their way. It's an interesting concept, and well played out. There are also some interesting ruminations on the nature of slavery, and waht it is to be the companion of the Doctor. It's got lots of adventure thrown in with all this philosophical stuff, and is an all round delight. It's still not as good as the best Five stories (Circular time, The Boy That Time Forgot, Singularity, etc) but it's not bad at all. 4 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars death in the desert 18 Mar 2009
By Paul Tapner TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
latest doctor who audio story, which features the fifth doctor and continues the story that was begun in the previous release Key 2 Time: The Judgement of Isskar (Doctor Who). although there's a brief reprise at the start of this you'll get more out of this if you've heard that one.

as usual there are four episodes each running roughly twenty five minutes spread over two discs with eighteen minutes of interviews with the cast and crew at the end of each disc. there's a trailer for recent release Orbis (Doctor Who: The New Eighth Doctor Adventures).

the trailer for next regular release Key 2 Time: The Chaos Pool (Doctor Who) can be found at the end of episode four.

the story involves the doctor and current companion amy getting stranded in 9th century sudan after an encounter with cosmic being the black guardian. the latter is played by david troughton, son of second doctor patrick, and he sounds so much like his father's it quite remarkable. the character is written rather differently from the way he was played on tv, and this new version of him - basically a being of chaos with a sharp with - is hugely entertaining.

the doctor and amy have to find each other and try to get off world. but they're in the middle of a duel between two ancient enemies and they've still got to find the latest segment of the key to time.

this is a hugely entertaining story, as a result of some strong characterisation and an interesting period setting.
