2.0 out of 5 stars Intolerable Nonsense!, 26 Jan. 2015
Doctor Who: Sick Building (Audio).

Product Info.
2xCD
Running Time 150 Minutes
Author: Paul Magrs
Read By: Will Thorpe

What's Up Doc?
Tiermann's World: a planet covered in wintry woods & roamed by sabre-toothed tigers & other savage beasts as the Doctor & Martha turn up to warn Professor Tiermann, his wife & their son that a terrible danger is on its way.

The Tiermanns live in luxury, in a fantastic, futuristic, fully-automated Dreamhome, under an impenetrable force shield, but that won't protect them from the Voracious Craw as a huge & hungry alien creature is heading remorselessly towards their home.

When it arrives everything will be devoured. Can they get away in time? With the force shield cracking up & the Dreamhome itself deciding who should or should not leave, things are looking desperate, so can the Doctor save the day in time?...

Timelord Thoughts.
Writer Paul Magrs delivers a very poor Tenth Doctor & Martha novel here titled 'Sick Building' which is set on a wilderness world where a crazed scientist whom together with his wife & son try to hold out against a monstrous creature called the Voracious Craw which is devouring the planet's entire surface & also a deranged computer that gained controls the Tiermanns dreamhouse.

I thought this story was a disappointing & childish adventure from Paul Magrs, the robots here are to cliche & annoying while the characterisation of both the Tenth Doctor & Martha Jones is inconsistent & out of character that's doesn't give a genuine interpretation of there on-screen performances & the monster threat is a complete joke lacking any fear or menace, how on Earth can a creature called a Voracious Craw be taken seriously?

One good thing about this audiobook adaption is actor Will Thorpes superb narration who gives a distinctive characterization of the story's characters & at least tries to add some much needed suspense & drama into this lacklustre story & actually deserves far better written adventures to narrate than this silly waffling nonsense.

'Sick Building' needed a Doctor to make this story better but sadly this story is well past saving & is one of the weakest stories in the range to date & is best given avoided, the two star's I've given is for Thorpes narration only.

Author: Mike Tucker
Read By: Anthony Head

Doctor: Tenth Doctor
Companion: Rose Tyler

What's Up Doc?
On a lonely stretch of Welsh coastline, a fisherman is killed by a hideous creature from beneath the waves & when the Doctor & Rose arrive, they discover a village where the children are plagued by nightmares & the nights are ruled by monsters.

The villagers suspect that ancient industrialist Nathanial Morton is to blame, but the Doctor has suspicions of his own, Who are the ancient figures that sleep in the old priory? What are the monsters that prowl the woods after sunset? What is the light that glows in the disused lighthouse on Black Island? As the children's nightmares get worse, The Doctor & Rose discover an alien plot to resurrect an ancient evil...

Timelord Thoughts.
Mike Tucker is a very underrated writer in my opinion & has written some very dark adventures for various Doctor's over the year's including the recent Twelfth Doctor novel 'The Crawling Terror', here it's the Tenth Doctor & Rose Tyler turn to feature in a Mike Tucker story & what a creepy spine tingling adventure it is too.

Mike Tucker has cleverly captured the tone & mannerisms of the slightly manic quirkiness of the Tenth Doctor hear & one can quite easily imagine actor David Tennant saying what's written on the page here & also nails the Rose Tyler's characterization who's defined as a brave sassy companion who shares a empathy to the suffering surrounding her.

This story contains a very spooky atmosphere that is read brilliantly by actor Anthony Head who is better known as Giles in 'Buffy The Vampire Slayer' & The Prime Minister in 'Little Britain' & gives a wonderful rich charming narration that is soothing & relaxing to hear Head's delightful vocal tones & is capable of injecting great drama to the storys dramatic moments when required.

Tuckers story conjures all types of surreal images from childrens nightmares to the shadowy creepy man in the wheelchair & seems somehow to channel the writing style of the late Robert Holmes who would of approved of this story as he by his own admission liked "scaring the little blighters behind the sofa" well Tucker's chilling story might scare a few adults behind that sofa too.

Overall,'The Nightmare of Black Island' is a original exciting horror story that is fast paced & delivers a thoroughly exciting, tension filled Tenth Doctor adventure that sure is creepy & atmospheric & certainly one to listen too in the dark with the lights switched off.

A highly recommended audiobook for fan's of the Tenth Doctor.

Doctor: Tenth Doctor
Companion: Martha Jones
Author: Mark Morris
Read By: Will Thorpe

What's Up Doc?
It is almost Halloween in the sleepy New England town of Blackwood Falls, Autumn leaves litter lawns & sidewalks, paper skeletons hang in windows, & carved pumpkins leer from stoops & front porches.

The Doctor & Martha soon discover that something long-dormant has awoken in the town, & this will be no ordinary Halloween, What is the secret of the ancient chestnut tree & the mysterious book discovered tangled in its roots? What rises from the local churchyard in the dead of night, sealing up the lips of the only witness? & why are the harmless trappings of Halloween suddenly taking on a creepy new life of their own?

As nightmarish creatures prowl the streets, the Doctor & Martha must battle to prevent both the townspeople & themselves from suffering a grisly fate...

Timelord Thoughts.
Writer Mark Morris has delivered one of the best Tenth Doctor stories to date in this tightly paced & genuinely scary adventure now adapted to audiobook,from it's intense prologue you know this is going to be a superb spooky written adventure that captures a Hammer Horror type vibe that literally chilled me to the bones from beginning to end.

This audiobook is read by 'The Impossible Planet/The Satan Pit' 'Toby' actor Will Thorpe who does a superb job with the narration here & provides a very gripping dramatic narrative that engages the listeners full attention to the story.

This story does features the odd Halloween clichés (evil pumpkin lanterns coming to life as they do) but writer Morris keeps the plot tightly paced & includes several gruesome moments as the local townsfolk meet there fate with some very grisly deaths.

Morris also delivers some superb moments of character drama & captures the manic energetic zany eccentrics of the Tenth Doctor brilliantly & writes solid Doctor dialogue you can actually hear David Tennant deliver, while Morris also writes a wonderful interpretation of companion Martha Jones who is written as a feisty strong willed & loyal companion.

Overall, 'Forever Autumn' is a genuinely creepy chilling tale that features a strong storyline plus great narration by actor Will Thorpe & delivers one of the stronger stories in this current Tenth Doctor range & comes as a highly recommended listen by this reviewer.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Good Story Hampered By Poor Narration, 25 Jan. 2015
Doctor Who: Sting Of The Zygons (Audio).

Product Info.
2xCD
Running Time 120 Minutes
Author: Stephen Cole.
Doctor: Tenth Doctor
Companion: Martha Jones
Main enemy: The Zygons
Read by Reggie Yates.

What's The Story.
The TARDIS lands the Doctor & Martha Jones in the Lake District in 1909, where a small village has been terrorised by a giant, scaly monster.

The search is on for the elusive "Beast of Westmorland" as explorers, naturalists & hunters from across the country are descending on the fells even King Edward VII himself is on his way to join the search, with a knighthood for whoever finds the Beast.

But there is a more sinister presence at work in the Lakes than a mere monster on the rampage & the Doctor is soon embroiled in the plans of an old & terrifying enemy as the hunters become the hunted, a desperate battle of wits begins with the future of the entire world at stake...

Timelord Thoughts.
Author Stephen Cole brings an old menace back to terrorize the Tenth Doctor & Martha in this well written fast paced novel titled 'Sting Of The Zygons', Cole has written the two main characters of The Tenth Doctor & Martha Jones extremely well & captures David Tennants portrayal of the Doctor with his quirky mannerisms & manic energy superbly, while Cole adds a strongly fiercely independent woman to the character of Martha Jones who can certainly hold her own in the face of danger, while Cole writes the Zygons as quite a sinister & deadly alien threat in this adventure.

The plot moves along quite quickly & features plenty of perilous danger throughout, while narrator Reggie Yates inexperience of not being a actor shows all to well here & Yates simply does not have the richness or depth on how to drive through the more dramatic parts of the adventure, although to his credit he does do a sinister interpretation of a Zygon.

With a strong plot, good characterizations & the inclusion of odd one or two surprises 'Sting Of The Zygons' is a fast paced & scary Tenth Doctor adventure that's let down by Reggie Yates poor lacklustre narration so I'd recommend reading the novel & give the audiobook adaption a miss.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Doctor Who: Peacemaker (Audiobook).

Product Info.
2xCD
Running Time 130 Minutes
Author: James Swallow
Read By: Will Thorp

What's Up Doc?
The peace & quiet of a remote homestead in the 1880s American West is shattered by the arrival of two shadowy outriders searching for 'the healer' but when the farmer refuses to help them, they destroy his home using guns that shoot bolts of energy instead of bullets.

In the town of Redwater, the Doctor & Martha learn of a snake-oil salesman who's patent medicines actually cure his patients, but when they investigate, the truth is stranger & far more dangerous.

Timelord Thoughts.
Writer James Swallow seems obviously influenced by writer Joss Whedon's style of writing as this excellent story captures a Whedonesque tone to this lively western adventure that moves at a fast pace as writer James Swallow has written a sharp witty action packed engaging romp that also captures the energetic slightly manic Tenth Doctor magnificently.

The Wild West setting is a great place for a Doctor Who adventure & this story puts a unique twist on the old character cliches to the cowboys, the local town sheriff, saloons & vile bandits as well as introducing new original aliens called The Clade, an alien warrior race who embody themselves in weapons through which they inhabit their hosts make for a intriguing advisory against the Doctor.

Will Thorp is a solid narrator & gives a good interpretation of the different characters who feature in the adventure while the plot contains some great moments of tension & drama that gives the Doctor plenty to do & run around a lot as he & Martha's life are constantly in danger throughout this tightly paced exciting adventure.

Overall, 'Peacemaker' is a action packed Doctor Who audio adventure that captures the tone & pace of the new series & is one of the better stories in the Tenth Doctor audiobook range that is well worth a listen & comes as a highly recommended purchase by this reviewer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sarah Jane Smith & The Sontarans Debut In This Classic Third Doctor Adventure, 24 Jan. 2015
Doctor Who: the Time Warrior.

Product Info.
4xCD's
Running Time 224 Minutes
Author: Terrence Dicks
Read By: Jeremy Bullock

What's Up Doc?
A spaceship is crippled in an inter-stellar battle & the Sontaran warrior, Linx, is forced to crash-land on Earth & arrives in the Middle Ages at a time too primitive to provide the technology he needs to repair his ship.

Allying himself with the local robber chief Irongron, Linx uses his powers to 'borrow' scientists & equipment from twentieth-century Earth which comes to the attention of the Doctor as he investigates in tracking down the missing scientists along with journalist Sarah Jane Smith into the past to save them, can the Doctor defeat the ruthless Linx & his savage human allies before the course of human history is changed forever?

Timelord Thoughts.
'The Time Warrior' is another wonderful Tv story written by the late great Robert Holmes who in my opinion was the shows best writer, this story featured the debut of Elisabeth Sladen as Sarah Jane Smith & a new enemy for the Doctor to be pitied against, the intergalactic warrior cloned race known as the Sontarans.

Writer Terence Dicks adapts Holmes Tv script into a great enjoyable action packed Target novelization which has been adapted to audio & fleshes out the backstory of the Sontaran Linx as he's battling against the Rutans in a impressive prologue scene & also includes a little more character development of Sarah Jane Smith as she goes from being quite wary of the Doctor & his motives to eventually begining to be more trusting of him, the rest of the novelization remains pretty faithful to what was shown on television.

Jeremy Bullock who featured in the Tv adventure as the archer Hal & whom played bounty hunter Boba Fett in 'The Empire Strikes Back' & 'Return Of The Jedi' does a good job of narrating this story who is able to utilise a great range of voices for the story's characters & gives an impressive interpretation of the vicious Irongron & adds a devious sinister edge to the Sontaran Linx.

The incidental music score & sound effects arranged by Simon Power add great drama & atmosphere to the audiobook enhancing the story somewhat, capturing the alien & medieval tone of the Third Doctor adventure.

'The Time Warrior' is another solid entry into the Target audiobook range that delivers strong narration by actor Jeremy Bullock, a great action packed novelization from Terence Dicks & features some impressive production values, sadly this audiobook is currently difficult to obtain & the retail price of this story is quite expensive possibly due to the demise of AudioGo in 2013 but as the BBC are now starting up their Doctor Who audiobook range, I've no doubt this will soon become available at a more affordable price & a story I'd then recommend purchasing.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Autons Return In The Master's Debut Adventure, 24 Jan. 2015
Doctor Who: Terror of the Autons (Audio).

Product Info.
4xCD
Running Time 331 Minutes
Author: Terrence Dicks
Read by Geoffrey Beevers
Unabridged Audiobook

What's Up Doc?
The renegade Timelord knowns as The Master has arrived on Earth who was once the Doctor's best friend long ago on Gallifrey, now he's one of the Doctor's deadliest advisories as the Master attempts to destroy the Earth with the help of the Autons who are controlled by the Nestene Consciences which has the ability to turn any item made of plastic into a deadly weapon.

Can the Doctor along with his new companion Jo Grant & with the help of UNIT outwit his rival Time Lord, the Master & save the Earth from the Nestene horror?

Timelord Thoughts.
'Terror Of The Autons' is one of my favourite Third Doctor stories which features the debut of companion Jo Grant, UNIT - Captain Mike Yates & of course The Master who was played so magnificently on Tv by the late great Roger Delgado.

Here Terrance Dicks adapts Robert Holmes script into a solid entertaining fast paced novelization, tweaking only the slightest of scenes & keeping the storyline faithful to Holmes original story that has been released as this 4 hour Target audio adaption which is narrated brilliantly by former Master actor Geoffrey Beevers who's chilling vocal tones add a eerily creepy edginess to this adventure as Beevers intense narration genuinely made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up.

The audio design complete with incidental music score & stunning sound effects whether it be a the sound of a fairground, low flying jets, a Auton energy firing weapon or UNIT shooting guns or throwing grenades all adds a tremendous dramatic atmosphere to the audiobook & makes you feel that you've been hurled into the action alongside the Doctor & UNIT.

Featuring great original cover art on the CD Sleeve & quality production values, 'Terror Of The Autons' is a highly energetic fast paced Third Doctor adventure thats translates extremely well to this Target range of audiobook adaptions & is a highly recommended purchase for Doctor Who fan's & possibly is one of the best audio adaptations in the range to date.

Doctor Who: The Ice Warriors (Audio).

Product Info.

Running Time 245 Minutes
Author: Brian Hayles
Read By: Frazer Hines

What's Up Doc?
The world is held in the grip of a second Ice Age & faces total destruction from the rapidly advancing glaciers The Doctor with Jamie & Victoria, lands at a top scientific base in England, where they have just unearthed an ancient Ice Warrior.

Aliens from Mars, preserved in the ice for centuries & now revitalised, the Ice Warriors feel ready to take over... Can the Doctor overcome these warlike Martians & halt the relentless approach of the ice glaciers?

Timelord Thoughts.
'The Ice Warriors' is another classic Second Doctor adventure that features the debut of the Ice Warriors from the red planet of Mars as writer Brian Hayles adapts his story into a excellent Target novelization that expands upon the backstorys of certain characters motivations & produces a clearer, concise & better scripted adventure than what was shown on television, Hayles also removes the padding that featured heavily in the storys later episodes which now adds a tighter dramatic pace & a slightly darker tone to the storyline.

Frazer Hines gives a excellent enthusiastic read to this audiobook & captures the tone & mannerisms of the late Patrick Troughtons Second Doctor superbly & at times it sounds uncannily like Troughton is actually voicing the Doctor himself, while Simon Power's incidental music score & great use of sound effects creates a dramatic atmospheric edge to the production adding a creepy tone to this adventure.

Sadly Nicholas Briggs doesn't voice the Ice Warriors on this audiobook adaption which is a pity as Briggs always brings a sinister menace to the Martian warriors which Hines doesn't quite grasp as well with his interpretation, but this is only a minor quibble of what is another highly polished production in the Target audiobook series & is another highly recommended purchase by this reviewer.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Excellent Adaption Of A Third Doctor Classic Adventure, 23 Jan. 2015
Doctor Who & The Curse Of Peladon (Audio).

Product Info.
5xCD's
Running Time 321 Minutes
Author: Brian Hayles
Read By: David Troughton

What's Up Doc?
What is the secret behind the killings on the Planet of Peladon? Is Aggedor seeking revenge because the King of Peladon wants his kingdom to become a member of the Galactic Federation? & will the Doctor escape the claws of Aggedor & discover the truth?

Timelord Thoughts.
`The Curse of Peladon' is another excellent Target audio adaption of a classic Third Doctor adventure arriving on the planet Peladon, the Doctor & Jo Grant quickly get caught up in local politics as King Peladon wishes to join the Galactic Federation & in doing so a group of interplanetary delegates arrive including the fearsome Ice Warriors to discuss terms.

But soon a new threat becomes all to apparent as a Peladon official is found dead, could the spirit of Aggedor be responsible? Or is The Doctor correct in assuming his old enemies the Ice Warriors are responsible? & were does all this leave the future of Peladon?

This is Doctor Who doing a intergalactic who-dunnit & for the most part writer Brian Hayles story delivers a solid entertaining & intriguing mystery that goes into far more detail about the history of the planet Peladon than the Tv episodes did.

This audiobook is narrated brilliantly by David Troughton (son of Patrick) who played King Peladon in this Tv adventure who gives a warm enthusiastic & clear reading to his narration that's enhanced further with a great atmospheric range of sound effects & music score by the excellent Simon Power.

My only quibble is that the Ice Warrior's don't quite come sound right especially the character of Martian Lord, Izlyr & this audiobook maybe would've benefited from voice of the Ice Warrior's - Nicholas Briggs lending his vocal tones to voice the Martian Warriors as his previous appearances in voicing the Daleks & Cybermen in these audio adaptations have added a chilling menace to the story & complemented the narrator with it becoming a two hander production.

Overall, 'Doctor Who & The Curse Of Peladon' is another excellent edition to the Target audiobook range & is a wonderful entertaining listen that delivers a fast paced suspenseful space mystery who-dunnit & is narrated superbly by David Troughton & is another highly recommended listen for fan's who enjoy these Target audiobooks.

Trivia.
1)This is the third horror film remake that Jaime King stars in, The first two would be My Bloody Valentine(2009) & Mothers Day(2010).

What's The Story.
It's Christmas Eve in a small New England town & Aubrey Bradimore is on the hunt for a deranged killer who is dressed as Santa Claus.

With help from her father & Sheriff Cooper, the inexperienced officer sets out to catch the mysterious killer but there is only one problem: the Christmas Eve parade is taking place & the streets are filled with Santas.

Timelord Thoughts.
'Silent Night' is a loose remake of the 1984 slasher 'Silent Night,Deadly Night' & to be fair is a decent slasher movie that delivers decent character development plus some great gory kills & a clever plot twist of who the killer Santa actually is.

Jamie King is a very underrated actress & brings a wide range of emotions to her character Aubrey Bradimore while Malcom McDowell gives a decent enough performance as Sheriff James Cooper & fares far better here than the recent 'Halloween' remakes McDowell has starred in.

Steven C. Miller direction is solid & he paces his movie well throughout it's 94 minutes run time & sets a dark tone & isolated atmosphere setting to the movie & pulls out several jump scare moments & doesnt skimp on the blood & guts either as the movie features some very inventive gory kills that aren't for the faint hearted (look out for the topless woman & the wood chipper sequence).

This is a solid entertaining horror remake & delivers everything slasher fan's crave for in a movie that despite the lack of special features on this vanilla DVD, 'Silent Night' is well worth a watch for fans who love strong gory horror hokum.

Timelord Rating.
7/10

P.S: Thanks to Caligula II for recommending this film with his excellent review.
