3.0 out of 5 stars "Don't 'sugar' me, honey", 29 Sept. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Doctor Who Demon Quest 4: Starfall (Audio CD)
This is the fourth cd in the Demon Quest five-part series. In this story, the Doctor, Mike and Mrs Wibbsey are following their pile of clues, which leads them to New York City in 1976, when the landing of a meteor catches them up in all sorts of trouble, with a pretzel seller, his girlfriend, and a faded talkies movie star. But is everything really as simple as it seems? Who are the people who gather for strange moonlit vigils at the top of the Dakota Building?

I found this story a little annoying in parts - the jazzy piano playing whenever Buddy was narrating was incredibly irritating, as was the slightly over the top "Noo Yoik" accent. And the scenario seems stretched - being exposed to a meteor and finding yourself with super powers would freak most people out - but not Alice! Oh no ... well, anyway ...

A bit of a fizzer, I thought - really even a totally unnecessary story in the Demons Quest arc - felt like a filler, and felt like there were holes in the plot big enough to drive trucks through.

The redeeming features were Tom Baker in his usual top form, Richard Franklin as Mike Yates, and Susan Jameson as Mrs Wibbsey. They remained true to form, and really kept the main storyline going throughout. On to part 5 which hopefully will bring the story to a great conclusion.
