The Robotovs and the Humans - but are there others involved?,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Doctor Who Serpent Crest 1: Tsar Wars (Audio CD)
I absolutely loved this cd. It starts off exactly where we left the Doctor, Mike Yates and Mrs Wibbsey - preparing for Christmas at Nest Cottage. But then, there's a knock at the door. Not often you find large robots at your door on Christmas Eve, but then, that's the peril of being the Doctor I guess! The Doctor and Mrs Wibbsey are transported away - but why do the robots already seem to know who they want, and what for?
This first part of the story is set in the Robotov Empire (very similar to Earth's Romanov Empire), where the Tsar and Tsarina rule over an unsettled empire utilising human labour. Father Gregory, a mysterious figure, appears to have a foot in both camps, but does he also have other plans?
The Doctor and Mrs Wibbsey are great in this story; the Doctor is in fine form, and Mrs Wibbsey really has settled into her role as a time traveller - the dialogue is great, the other characters are well-presented and well acted, and the sound effects really add to the story. The plot is great; well built up and leads to a nice crescendo at the end of this first part of the ongoing story. Looking forward to the next part of the adventure! I hope Mike Yates turns up - perhaps he's happy at Nest Cottage with a whole Christmas dinner to himself.
