5.0 out of 5 stars death in the desert, 18 Mar. 2009
This review is from: The Key 2 Time: Destroyer of Delights Pt. 2 (Doctor Who) (Audio CD)
latest doctor who audio story, which features the fifth doctor and continues the story that was begun in the previous release Key 2 Time: The Judgement of Isskar (Doctor Who). although there's a brief reprise at the start of this you'll get more out of this if you've heard that one.

as usual there are four episodes each running roughly twenty five minutes spread over two discs with eighteen minutes of interviews with the cast and crew at the end of each disc. there's a trailer for recent release Orbis (Doctor Who: The New Eighth Doctor Adventures).

the trailer for next regular release Key 2 Time: The Chaos Pool (Doctor Who) can be found at the end of episode four.

the story involves the doctor and current companion amy getting stranded in 9th century sudan after an encounter with cosmic being the black guardian. the latter is played by david troughton, son of second doctor patrick, and he sounds so much like his father's it quite remarkable. the character is written rather differently from the way he was played on tv, and this new version of him - basically a being of chaos with a sharp with - is hugely entertaining.

the doctor and amy have to find each other and try to get off world. but they're in the middle of a duel between two ancient enemies and they've still got to find the latest segment of the key to time.

this is a hugely entertaining story, as a result of some strong characterisation and an interesting period setting. there's also a great amount of humour but that all arises out of character interaction and that makes it work superbly. add in some excellent incidental music that fits the setting and the style of the story, and you've got an excellent and very entertaining cd. well worth a listen
