Cracking Patrick Troughton story,
This review is from: Doctor Who: Shadow of Death (Destiny of the Doctor 2) (Audio CD)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
For me, Doctor Who has always been about the earlier doctors, most specifically Pertwee and (Tom) Baker. I'm slightly too young for Patrick Troughton, but have always enjoyed book adaptations of the stories of the second doctor - specifically his grumpy approach, far more so than every other doctor other than William Hartnell.
This story is a new one, and has the added bonus of being partly voiced by the actor who many years ago played the Doctor's Companion, Jamie. Whilst part of the Destiny of the Doctor series, it works well as a standalone story, and is surprisingly atmospheric. It's amazing the mental images one conjures up when listening to a story, rather than watching it on TV!
A great adaptation for all Doctor Who fans - old-timers will enjoy the look back to the early days of Who, whilst newer fans, who may not realise that there was life before Eccleston, Tennant and Smith, will enjoy it as well.
