base under siege with a difference,
This review is from: Something Inside (Doctor Who) (Audio CD)
Lots of doctor who stories involve a remote base, with a small crew of humans, under siege by nasty monsters.
This is a base under siege story with a difference. In that the humans inside this base are trying desperately to get out. But there is a monster in their midst.
The tardis lands in a strange building. And they quickly meet people who are desperate to get out of it. The doctor is separated from his companions, and meets the people who built the place.
There is a monster loose in it, and it kills without discrimination. And since it's a monster of the mind, you can't see where it's coming from. Or who it's with.
A good solid piece of traditional doctor who, this is a pretty engaging listen. The characters manage to rise above the level of cliche to become three dimensional, and the plot grips all the way.
The last episode is dramatic stuff, when everything comes to a head. Not everyone walks away. And the reaction the doctor has to this is brilliantly portrayed by paul mcgann.
A good strong audio story that's well worth a listen
