conventional and all the better for it,
This review is from: Three's a Crowd (Doctor Who) (Audio CD)
Episode one starts in an interesting setting for a doctor who story: a human colony with more buildings than people, and those who do live there are so agrophobic that they stay indoors all the time. The colony leader makes regular cheery broadcasts to them all. But does she know more than she's letting on?
The fifth doctor and companions arrive, and do indeed find there's more to the place that meets the eye.
The threat comes from rather conventional although quite well characterised aliens, which is a bit of a shame as the potential for some more psychological horror was here. Nevertheless, whilst this is a conventional doctor who story in many ways, it's a pretty strong one, as the supporting cast are great, and the companions are very well written. The latter doesn't always happen, so that makes this worthwhile.
Don't expect great drama from this, just a decent bit of conventional doctor who, and you won't be disappointed
