5.0 out of 5 stars Lurkers at the Sunlight's Edge: How many dreamers are there?, 22 Aug 2013

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lurkers at Sunlight's Edge (Doctor Who) (Audio CD)
This is the hundred and forty first release from Big Finish in their range of full cast audio adventures starring classic Doctor Whos. It stars Sylvester McCoy as Seven, Sophie Aldred as Ace and Philip Olivier as Hex. There are four episodes, roughly 25-30 minutes each, complete with cliffhangers and original theme music between each. Two episodes per disc on 2 discs, and a short booklet with some pictures of the cast and production notes. There are some interviews with cast and crew at the end of the second disc and a few minutes of the soundtrack at the end of disc 1.

Following the big, complex and angsty adventures of `Project: Destiny' and `Death in the Family', this is a return to the traditional Who story, and none the worse for it. The Doctor, Ace and Hex land the TARDIS somewhere close to Alaska, and are soon running around on the ice dealing with some very strange puzzles, the inmates of a local lunatic asylum, lots of men with guns, and CP Doveday, pulp horror writer and possibly the most dangerous man on the planet. Oh, and strange mists, networks of caves and the most unusual of sacred texts.

It's inventive, it's fun, it hits all the right notes for a story about as traditionally Who as you can get. It's a pleasure to listen to. Especially for the homage to Lovecraft (though at times it seems to be taking elements from L Ron Hubbard and the founding principles of the cult of scientology). McCoy, Aldred and Olivier clearly enjoy this after all the hard work and deep and meaningful stuff of the previous releases. It's a good, solid, old fashioned story and a great listen. A great way to round off this excellent trilogy, 5 stars.
