Plot Synopsis.
The Sixth Doctor & Peri step out of the Tardis to find themselves in the Museum of Aural Antiquities, where every sound is stored from speeches to security service wire taps and interrogation tapes. But they also find an intruder, mysterious changed recordings, and a dead body!

Before long, The Doctor realises that there is more going on than a simple break-in or murder. So just how can the Doctor defeat a creature that is composed of pure sound?

Timelord Thoughts.
This is a great audio adventure that's storyline suits the audio format superbly as seasoned Doctor Who writer Justin Richards has delivered a tense thrilling murder mystery that features an excellent performance by Sixth Doctor actor Colin Baker who's sixth incarnation shines on audio delivering great gravitas to proceedings.

Great support comes from co-star Nicola Bryant as Peri with is a great contrast for the brash Sixth Doctor, Peter Miles as the Curator Gantman & Lisa Bowerman as Beth Pernell who both may know more than there letting on about events surrounding the dead body found inside Aural Antiques.

Writer Justin Richards keeps the tension building nicely throughout the 2 hour play while adding a whodunit mystery that engages the listener to partake in the investigation along with the Doctor & Peri.

This audio adventure has some excellent sound effects that add a creepy moody atmosphere to the play which I found is best listened to in the dark.

This showcases what Big Finish are capable of achieving on audio using great experienced Doctor Who writer's & as this was only there third release Big Finish deliver a fully rounded enjoyable audio adventure.

Timelord Rating.
8/10
