Of his bones are coral made.,
This review is from: Full Fathom Five (Doctor Who: Unbound) (Audio CD)
What if... the Doctor believed that the ends justified the means? That is the question posed in "Full Fathom Five", the third Doctor Who Unbound story. David Collings (perhaps best known as Silver in Sapphire And Steel) is the actor tasked with bringing to live this ruthless version of the Doctor and he does a superb job. Collings Doctor is a very cold character who for one reason or another no longer cares about the consequences of his actions. I should point out that the Doctor is still the hero of the story but a hero who will do anything to achieve his goals, even going so far as killing two characters.
"Full Fathom Five" is written by David Bishop who provides a fast paced script that never gets dull and isnt without its twists and turns. The ending is with out doubt the most shocking thing about this story and I really cant say much about it without spoiling it. Needless to say though, the TV series could never have an ending like "Full Fathom Five" which I guess is the whole point of the Doctor Who Unbound series.
There really isnt anything negative I can say about "Full Fathom Five". An excellent script coupled with superb acting and a brilliant ending make it one of the best Doctor Who audios available.
