This review is from: The Macros (Doctor Who: The Lost Stories 1.08) [Audiobook] (Audio CD) (Audio CD)
I apologise for the punning title, this audio really isn't that bad but I couldn't resist.
The final story in the first Sixth Doctor 'Lost season' sees the Time Lord and companion Peri arriving on board the infamous USS Eldridge, scene of an (alleged) hoax involving supposed US invisibility experiments on one of its Destroyers in 1943. I only know about this at all because I once saw the 1984 film The Philadelphia Experiment  [DVD], but the idea is certainly perfect Doctor Who material and has the potential to form the basis of a great audio adventure. Unfortunately this is not it; I found the story to be ultimately uninvolving, the characters unimaginative, and the sub-plot involving the warlike alien monarch Osloo and her rebellious son to be hackneyed, and in the case of Linda Marlowe (playing Osloo), horribly overacted.
Still, I think the best thing about these audios has been The Doctor/Peri relationship; vastly better than the one they had on TV, and which continues to go from strength to strength here. Vastly different from her whiny reactive TV persona; Peri is proactive, pithy, warm and intelligent, whilst Colin Baker continues to excel as the bombastic but brilliant Time Lord.
CD extras are at the end of disc one, and include interviews with Baker, Nicola Bryant (Peri) and several of the cast and crew.
