Not a Doctor Who fan, but really enjoyed this!,
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?)
Over the years, I have never really been a Doctor Who fan; however, when this was offered, something about it intrigued me and made me want to listen to it.
The plot was really enjoyable. From the opening sentences, where Jamie was trying to work out how he could be over 1000 year old, I was hooked. Before long, The Doctor and his team find themselves on a stgrange planet, where a 'dark shadow' is chasing and killing off the team of scientists who are trying to find out more about 'The Quiet Ones' who lived there previously. But what is the shadow, and why is it causing so many problems?
A relatively short story (1 CD lasting just over an hour) this is, nevertheless, intriguing and enjoyable. So why only 4 stars? In my opinion, the ending was a little rushed, and I had to listen to that part twice in order to really grasp what had happened!
In spite of this, I still recommend the CD and hope that others (both Dr Who fans and those like me, who have never been hooked by the TV series) will enjoy it as much as I have. I will probably be buying more!
