An entertaining mess,
This review is from: Night Thoughts (Doctor Who) (Audio CD)
Very similar in style - though not quite in the same class - as `Ghost Light', this science fiction / horror story finds the 7th Doctor, Ace and Hex trapped on a remote Scottish island with some bizarre characters, a bizarre time travel experiment, and a zombie on the loose...
Plot-wise `Night Thoughts' is very dense, requiring multiple listens to understand, but it's also very messy, with a large number of plot-holes and inconsistencies. In terms of mood however this is a great success, with oodles of spooky goings on, a very nasty twist ending, and a level of gruesome viciousness entirely absent from the new TV series. All in all `Night Thought's is a bit of a mess: but it is a very entertaining and interesting mess.
