5.0 out of 5 stars "I want to be a good man, Doctor", 29 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Jubilee (Doctor Who) (Audio CD)
This is a very dark, psychoanalytical thriller that really stands well as a thriller story, whether involved in Doctor Who's universe or not. The Doctor and Evelyn arrive in London in 2003 ... or is it 1903? And why is it against the law to contract your words? Is this a world that the Doctor can recognise, or want to be a part of? And does he believe that he may have been the cause of it after all?

The Doctor, Evelyn and some really rather nasty humans meet up in this crazy mixed-up world at the time of a Jubilee, a celebration of 100 years since ... the Doctor was last here? Or was he? And why are the humans torturing a Dalek that's been prisoner here for decades?

Is Rochester all he seems? Is Miriam?

So many questions! And none of them are answered till well near the end of this great 2-cd story, divided into four episodes. I like the Sixth Doctor in these audio adventures, he seems to have regained some of his humour and light-hearted tone while retaining his intensity. And Evelyn makes a great companion - a sensible lady who matches the Doctor in wit and intelligence.

Dark, disturbing, tales of the inherent inhumanity of mankind itself. Could we become like that?

Highly, totally recommended - riveting stuff.

Did you know that the Ninth Doctor episode Dalek was based on this story?
Robert Sherman adapted part of his script for tv.
This is another they wouldn't make on Tv but works great on audio.
Great review.

No, I didn't know that - thanks! I didn't know quite what to make of this story at until really it ended - and then it all falls into place; to me that's the mark of a very cleverly written story, but you do have to concentrate to really get all the nuances.
