5.0 out of 5 stars Whispers in the graveyard, 13 April 2011
This review is from: The Whispering Forest (Doctor Who) (Audio CD)
The second of three 2010 Big Finish dramas to feature the reunited early-Eighties TARDIS team is an absolute belter. The story is styled like something straight out of 1983 and as such is another nostalgic treat for those of us whose first Doctor was Peter Davison.
The Fifth Doctor is firing on all cylinders here; Tegan and Turlough have reached an uneasy truce, and Nyssa is as calmly knowledgeable as ever. The travelling companions arrive in the middle of a fractured community on the curiously named planet Purity; who are the ethereal `Shades' and why are they spiriting away sick and injured people? Why are the inhabitants of Purity so obsessed with hygiene and why does The Doctor's name cause such consternation and interest..?
Stephen Cole's script is terrific and the cast rise to it admirably. With excellent support from Sue Wallace as the deranged Mertil, and Four to Doomsday's Paul Shelley as the naïve Jestan, the four principals provide what must be their best performances to date, and the trilogy is nicely set up at the end of disc two when an old adversary and ancient evil rears its scaly head once more...
