Shocking storyline, but brilliant just the same!,
This review is from: The Game (Doctor Who) (Audio CD)
I was actually genuinely surprised by the storyline of this story. The murderous game is quite horrible, even if you only hear it. If this was a screen adventure and not just an audio, it would be worse than Terminator!
But the story is still very very good, and the characters are believable and yet much more serious due to the nature of the storyline. Peter Davison again gives a realistic performance as the Doctor. What would one do if forced to enter into a game that butchers thousands? Even an alien would be sick to the pit of their stomach, and Peter conveys this very well. Sarah Sutton of course is brilliant as Nyssa, who despite of many other views, is a good companion! Shes compassionate and caring, and thats the kind of person i like most.
And hearing William Russell too is a joy. He was excellent as Ian in 1963 and he's brilliant in this too in 2005! Cant wait for the next story with Morian, i want to see what happens to the bad guy. He cant get away forever surely?.....
