This review is from: Doctor Who: Snake Bite (11th Doctor Audio Original) (Audio CD)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Snake Bite is a superb one hour and ten minute tale that is read very capably by Frances Barber (who played Madame Kovarian in series 6). Her voice, which is very flexible in the characterisation she gives to the voices of this story, is supported by excellent sound effects and music.
This is Doctor Who at its best - conjuring up a fantastic setting that is so much bigger in the imagination than CGI could ever make it!
Using a plot that includes a `Ringworld' type space station, wormholes and a race bent on conquest, the story is developed rapidly into a tense saga that ends horribly for the new enemy.
The new enemy is well developed and described to the point that any listener will appreciate the evil and its outworking.
I was totally caught up by the story and enjoyed it immensely. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys `Who' and has some drive-time to while-away or the opportunity to sit down and enjoy this single CD at home.
