3.0 out of 5 stars Fortunately there is a silver lining..., 30 Jan. 2009
This review is from: Kingdom of Silver (Doctor Who) (Audio CD)
The return of the second best Doctor Who monster heralds this latest original audio adventure for Sylvester McCoy's Seventh Doctor - this time travelling solo. Two warring planets are fighting over scraps of Cyber Technology in order to improve their chances of winning the war; into this steps The Doctor, and he is soon working with Android spy `Temeter' to once again outwit his deadly foe...

McCoy brings his usual mix of dark whimsy and deceptive charm to the party, whilst The Cybermen do their thing and the plot rushes on. To be honest, that's about all I can say about an undemanding and generic Doctor Who audio adventure.

The bonus story `Keepsake' improves things no end, as The Doctor arrives many years later on a planet that appears to be a giant scrap yard complete with Droid attendant. The unusually intelligent mechanoid leads the Timelord to discovers what became of Temeter and his unfortunate colleague Sara after they had completed their mission. A stirring blend of pathos and intrigue ensues and I ended up slightly disappointed that this wasn't the main story.

The CD extras comprise the usual interviews with cast and crew - most notable of these is Nick Briggs' concluding chat with Sylvester McCoy, where the actor shares his thoughts about how The Seventh Doctor could be revived! All in all this is a slightly disappointing audio story which is rescued by its bonus story.
