5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Doctor and Evelyn story, 20 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Real Time (Doctor Who) (Audio CD)
I absolutely loved this audio story. I believe it was originally a webcast, but I came to this audio cd with no preconceptions or previous knowledge of the history of the story, so was open to the adventure of the Doctor and Evelyn - anything that incorporates cybermen is good in my book!

There is a great rapport in the relationship between the Doctor and Evelyn - she's obviously a lady who stands no nonsense; and that seems to make the Doctor more agreeable all round really. There's a lovely wordplay near the beginning of the story on "morning" and "mourning" suits, which is really funny. From there the story gets serious as mysterious disappearances, temples with time portals, and cybermen all come into play.

I see the previous reviewer says he/she couldn't work out who the Cyber Controller was - seriously, I don't think it was that hard - I certainly had not worked it out before, but the horror, when it is divulged, is definitely clear enough I thought.

Brilliantly played, by all the cast - and the cyber conversion and destruction scenes are horrible to listen to - I found myself glued to the chair with a horrified expression on my face as they played out. Gruesome indeed; but integral to the story.

The story is left open-ended, which is nice, and leaves the way for sequels to this particular storyline - yes please I would definitely like to hear more of where this story could go!

Ah, yes you have to listen carefully to get the real horrifying truth! I enjoyed this thoroughly - a pleasant surprise as some of the stories that are not part of the normal releases can, in my view, sometimes be a bit 'soft' and not true to their Doctor roots. But this was really great.
