3.0 out of 5 stars Up the Himalayas, again� 2 Nov 2004
By Jane Aland VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
The Roof of the World starts well, with the 5th Doctor dragging Peri and Erimem along to a cricket match in Tibet, while an ancient evil is reawakening in the Himalayan Mountains. Unfortunately after a fine first episode things deteriorate, with an extended series of visions for Erimem ruining the pacing, and a disappointing last minute TARDIS hop up the mountains taking the place of any more dramatic climb for the Doctor and Peri. The basic story is uncomfortably close to that of The Abominable Snowmen, only with the Great Intelligence replaced by H.P. Lovecraft's Great Old Ones (though, it must be said - a rather feeble version). Some nice performances, but ultimately from a strong start The Roof of the World gets progressively more disappointing the longer it goes on, and ends up a decidedly average adventure for all concerned. Neither the best Cthulhu Mythos inspired Who story, nor the best set in the Himalayas - The Roof of the World competently goes over old ground, but doesn't break into any new territory.

3.0 out of 5 stars doesn't reach the summit 8 Aug 2006
By Paul Tapner TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
A superb first episode has the tardis crew in an excellently evoked tibet at the start of the 20th century. Visiting the settlement at the foot of mount everest for a spot of cricket, the doctor and friends find strange goings on afoot. This episode brilliantly conveys the feel of the setting, and has some decent supporting characters.

Alas it all gets very average from then on. The second episode is entirely devoted to dealing with the rather cliched monsters and erimem's past.

And the next two resolve things in a cliched and predictable manner. The actors cannot be faulted, but the script, after starting so well, fails to deliver much interesting or new. This is not a bad play, it's just ultimately a rather average one

Dedicated to my forum friend Picklepest who requested this review.

Positive.
1)Peter Davison gives a good performance despite an average script by Adrian Rigelsford.
2)Tibet & monsters in the Himalayas makes for a chilling adventure.

Negative.
1)Caroline Morris as Erimem doesn't seem to work as a second companion.
2)A very average story by Adrian Rigelsford this should have been so much better.
3)Doesnt live up to it's promising opening episode.

CD Information.
2 x CD of a 4 part adventure running time 120 minutes approx.

Trivia.
1)This was Caroline Morris first adventure as a regular companion with the fifth Doctor & Peri.
2)Tibet & Himalayas featured in the second Doctor tv story The Abominable Snowman.

Review.
Tibet 1917.

The Fifth Doctor, Peri & Erimem arrive in Tibet as the Doctor is invited to play a cricket match but when the Doctor & his companions become in broiled in a mysterious adventure in the Himalayas as a team of explorers seek blindly into uncharted territory determined to beat the odds & to face the challenges they will come across during there expedition.

But sometimes we face challenges that we cannot always defeat!

There is a ancient evil stirring within the Himalayas an evil older than time itself that has been waiting a long long time & now is ready to manifest itself to finally finish what it started many centuries ago.

Can the Doctor & his companions find out the mystery to why this ancient evil has now returned as it's intentions are soon made very clear as the time is right to strike but will the Doctor have enough time to defeat this ancient power that has manifested within the heart of the Himalayas.
