5.0 out of 5 stars The battle for mars, 27 Dec. 2010
This review is from: The Resurrection of Mars (Doctor Who: The Eighth Doctor Adventures) (Audio CD)
Latest eighth doctor audio story. It's the second half of a two parter following right on from Deimos (Doctor Who: The New Eighth Doctor Adventures), and picks up from where the startling cliffhanger to that left off.

It runs for two episodes of almost thirty minutes each and is complete on one cd.

And isn't easy to review without spoilers.

Suffice it to say that all the plot threads from the previous stories in the season come together here, so it's probably not a good one for a stand alone listen and better for those who follow the series regularly.

It takes a past adversary of the Doctor who may never have been taken seriously in the past and turns them into a very cunning and dangerous adversary. Thanks not least to a great performance from the actor playing them.

And it considers the moral question of whether or not the end ever justifies the means. The Doctor is always resolute in his desire not to let people die. And yet not everyone may always agree with him. Which means that a few characters here have some very convincingly rendered soul searching to deal with. And change results.

Alongside all there's also an exciting battle with the Ice Warriors.

But it gets the Doctor's character so very right - he has interesting things to say about a past incarnation and there's a big hint about....something we may hear in due course. And Paul McGann tackles all this with aplomb delivering a superb performance.

A gripping audio that makes you think as well. Best of the season so far.

There's a trailer for the next release Relative Dimensions (Doctor Who: The New Eighth Doctor Adventures) on the penultimate track, and roughly sixteen minutes worth of interviews with cast and crew on the final track. These are very good and well worth a listen.
