`Tomb Ship' is the second story of this 2014 trilogy with the Doctor and Nyssa!

After enjoying the previous story 'Moonflesh', I couldn't wait and was looking forward to the next story. `Tomb Ship' is a gripping, atmospheric and claustrophobic tale set inside a tomb ship in space, with lots of Egyptology influences, puzzles and traps. It's pretty tense with lots of drama and character relationships. I enjoyed this story with Peter Davison and Sarah Sutton leading the cast. I've had my CD cover for this story signed by lovely Sarah at Weston-super-Mare, 2014.

The TARDIS arrives on this pyramid-like tomb ship in space that is the resting-place for the Arrit God-King. Realising where they are, the Doctor's determined to get away. But he and Nyssa soon meet Virna and her sons and she viciously forces the Doctor to work for them to get through the puzzles whilst Nyssa is held hostage. But there's far more to this tomb ship conencted with Virna's history? Will the Doctor and Nyssa survive and avoiding the insect-like Arrit-Ko?

`Tomb Ship' is written by Emma Beeby and Gordon Rennie. They've written for the Doctor and Nyssa before in the story '1001 Nights'. They write for the Doctor and Nyssa fairly well in this story, and certainly do them justice in interacting with the other characters in this story. They're also into their Egyptology and have fun with the characters getting through tests and solving riddles as the story has an air of `Indiana Jones' and `Lara Croft' about it.

Peter Davison is great as the Doctor in this.

Format: Audio CD
A new Doctor Who audio story. Featuring Peter Davison as the Doctor, and Sarah Sutton as his companion Nyssa.

This is the second in a new trilogy for them. Which started with Moonflesh (Doctor Who). Let's just say that the stories in the trilogy aren't quite as standalone as you might think, and you will get more out of this one if you have heard Moonflesh.

It runs for four parts. Spread over two cd's. Episodes run from twenty five to thirty minutes in length [approx.].

The story is set aboard a vast pyramid. Which is floating through space. This is a tomb ship. Tomb of the last god king of the arrit, a very advanced race. Long since extinct.

An avaricious lady and her children are searching the place for treasure. But it's a deadly environment, full of traps.

When the TARDIS arrives, and the Doctor finds out something about the Tomb, everyone on board faces a race against time to survive...

From the off this does have the feel of it's era. And is a story that might just have worked on tv at the time. Although audio and the imagination make the visuals stronger than 1980's bbc special effects could have managed.

Virna, the leader of the tomb raiders, is a very strong character. A totally appalling individual, but a well acted and believable creation. You might be hard pressed to remember the names of many of the other supporting characters, but the actors do well and make them all individual and different. Particularly one who spends a lot of the story working with Nyssa. The two having a good dynamic.

It does try hard to be a roller coaster ride, and it succeeds at this.
