5.0 out of 5 stars Great historical Doctor Who story - the evolution of which species?, 14 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bloodtide (Doctor Who) (Audio CD)
This four-part audio story with the Sixth Doctor and Evelyn Smythe mixes history with a little bit of imagination. The Doctor takes Evelyn to meet Charles Darwin on the Galagapos Islands as Charles is travelling on the Beagle. Little do they know that there are others already living there who see the whole world as theirs, not that of the "ape creatures" - yes, the Silurians are back again! This story features a small group of Silurians who are living under the caves on one of the Islands, and from there they are terrifying, and taking, villagers and visitors. They have someone in power in their command, and they are determined to take back the world. The Doctor is quick to pick up that something is wrong, but when he disappears, it's up to Evelyn to team up with Charles Darwin and see if they can sort out whatever it is that's happening.

This story, while packed with action, Silurians, and plans to rule the world, is also thought-provoking. Man's place in the Universe is questioned, and there are moral questions to be answered by many of the charcters.

A great story, and one that utilises the Doctor and Evelyn well - the character of Charles Darwin is portrayed well, and sympathetically. A really great historical Doctor Who with a twist.
