remembrance of the thals,
This review is from: Brotherhood of the Daleks (Doctor Who) (Audio CD)another audio story featuring colin baker as the sixth doctor who. this one follows on from the previous two sixth doctor audios in that his companion is charley pollard played by india fisher. charley previously travelled with the eighth doctor. and hasn't told the sixth that. yet.
the story runs for four episodes, of approx twenty five minutes duration each. there are two episodes on each of the two cd's in the box. the first begins with a trailer for the forthcoming release curse of the daleks, an adaptation of a 1960's stage play, and both discs end with interviews with the cast and crew involved in the story.
in a slight change to the norm there is no trailer for the next in the regular big finish range.
since this follows on from the previous two sixth doctor and charley stories there is a story arc here, although you should be able to get into this one without having heard the previous two. but I would recommend hearing them first as this is a rather involved little tale.
this story involves the doctor and charley arriving on a jungle planet. with invisible natives. deadly plants. blonde haired soldiers. and daleks.
all this may sound familiar to those who know their doctor who tv continuity. but there's actually far more going on here than meets the eye. the tardis crew have stumbled into the middle of some very deadly experiments.
and I can't say too much more than that. you'll thank me for it because this is quite a remarkable script, with a story that contains an amazing number of twists and turns, and a few very clever concepts. plus one absolutely brilliant character moment for charley. you'll lose count of the number of times it makes you say 'what!'.
and make sure you don't turn the second disc off before the end. let it play itself out.
a quite superb script, and one that will doubtless reward re listenings. a highly recommended audio
