Potted Audios of the Last Series
on 30 January 2011
This 2xCD set covers each of the TV episodes from Matt Smith's first season as Doctor Who; each episode is presented in shortened form using audio clips from the series with some linking narration.
My personal reaction to this was one of indifference; if I wanted to relive the series again I'd watch it instead (although the format does allow you better to savour Matt Smith's beautiful deadpan delivery of Stephen Moffat's lines).
However, when I played it to our kids, all of whom are avid Doctor Who fans who already knew each episode off by heart, they fell silent, concentrated on listening, and afterwards expressed how much they enjoyed it.
So perhaps the CD is best appreciated by a younger audience, and is in fact a good way to get children to "listen" to a story that's not too long, rather than sit in front of the TV.
