4.0 out of 5 stars Body Snatching Does Doctor Who?, 21 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Medicinal Purposes (Doctor Who) (Audio CD)
Positive.
The exellent cast of actors.

Colin Baker Whom really is a exellent audio Doctor breezes through this play with enthusiasm & intrigue.
Maggie Stables as Evelyn always at the Doctors side to bring rationality to his sometime s erratic choices.
Leslie Phillips as The mysterious Robert Knox gives a charm to such a enigmatic character.
David Tennant, Never heard of him is he a big actor?, plays Daft Jamie the right side of madness, David Tennant that name rings a bell.

Negative.
I thought it a little off pace in 2nd episode to much talking in the pub but that's just my personal opinion.

Trivia.
Colin Baker appeared in a episode of another SciFi series for the BBC in season 3 of Blakes 7.
Leslie Phillips appeared in several Doctor in....movies in the 1960's & reprised the role of Doctor Knox in Assassin In The Limelight.
David Tennant went on to become the Tenth Doctor for 3 series & a series of specials from Christmas 2005-New Years Day 2010.

Audio Info.
This is a 4 part adventure on 2 CDS running to 130 minutes.

Review.
1827 The Tardis arrives in Edinburgh there the two time travelers stumble upon a murder in the dark cobbled backstreets, Who is murdering these innocent victim's & why?.

Could it be the work of infamous bodysnatchers Burke & Hare whom are under the employment of the mysterious Doctor Robert Knox.

But what is Knox really up to & could their be more to his motives than meets the eye? & is Knox about to change history forever?.

The Doctor along with his companion Evelyn, Mary & Daft Jamie whom they meet in the local pub get involved in this murderous time travel plot.

But just what is Doctor Knox & why does he own a Tardis has he stolen it or could he to be infact a Timelord? & just what are those images that Daft Jamie keeps on seeing in his mind?

This is a exellent historic adventure given a little SciFi twist as
this is a well writtern & a enjoyable romp written by Robert Ross.

Colin Baker is on great form here as The Doctor as he really gets involved in the mystery & adventure, Colins enthusiasm for the play shines through in this audiobook.

Leslie Phillips gives a outstanding erformance as Doctor Robert Ross making him a charming but non farcical villian, Phillips is so good in this story that he steals ever scene he's in on this play.

David Tennant exelles as Daft Jamie showing a slight craziness to the part without going to over the top.

A rollicking great adventure with a great cast of actors, Mystery & intrigue, Highly Recommended.

Its a very loose trilogy of stories & i though Pier pressure a little poorer than the other two.

I enjoyed this story very much. I wanted to hear David Tennant in a Doctor Who before he became the Doctor, and he's brilliant in this. Makes you wonder why the Doctor decided to regenerate and take a body of a deranged Scotsman as well as a German officer in 'Coldtz'.
Great review and great story with Colin Baker and Maggie Stables, and a chilling and as you say 'charming' performance from Leslie Phillips. Tim.
