3.0 out of 5 stars Stone me!, 22 April 2009
This review is from: The Stones of Venice (Doctor Who) (Audio CD)
Back cover blurb:
The Doctor and Charley decide to take a well-deserved break from the monotony of being chased, shot at and generlly suffering anti-social behaviour at the hands of others. And so they end up in Venice, well into Charley's future, as the great city prepares to sink beneath the water for the last time...
Which would be a momentous, if rather dispirting, event to witness in itself. However, the machinations of a love-sick artistocrat, a proud art histroian and a rabid High Priest of a really quite dodgy cult combine to make Venice's swansong a night to remember. And then there's the rebellion by the web-footed amphibious underclass, the mystery of a disappearing corpse and the truth behind a curse going back further than curses usully do. The Doctor and Charley are focred to wonder just what they have got themselves involved with this time.

A nice plot twist, an intriguing setting, some good performances from Paul McGann, India Fisher and the supporting cast; and featuring the late great Michael Sheard - Mr Bronson from Grange Hill and one of Doctor Who's most prolific guest actors in his final Doctor Who role. Sadly, the 18th story in Big Finish's monthly Doctor Who series is less than the sum of its parts, and consequently struggles to hit the series' previous highs.
