5.0 out of 5 stars Very underated indeed......, 5 Dec 2007
This review is from: Doctor Who: the Space Pirates (Audio CD)
There seem to be a lot of Doctor Who stories that are labelled boring or lacklustre. The Space Pirates has suffered thia reputation. But Im afraid that i really like this story. This has great characters in place of monsters. For six episodes its very enjoyable. Some six parters are laboured, but this story is not one of them.

The Space Pirates is yet another story that rubbishes the theory that the old series never really had any real emotion. Id like to point out the final two episodes when Madeliene finds out that Caven has been keeping her father alive when she thought he has been dead for years, her reaction seems or at least sounds, very realistic indeed.

And to say the least, Pat Troughton is really at his best, with some great one liners amidst this great space opera that actually does work! I like this more than many of the monster oriented who's. Robert Holmes always had a knack of writing brilliant characters and Dom Issigri and Milo Clancey are two great creations.

A story with plenty to offer and an easy to follow yet very vividly directed plot line. This story is actually a real lost "classic"!
