3.0 out of 5 stars Overworked, 18 Oct 2010
This review is from: Secret Origins (Bernice Summerfield) (Audio CD)
An Eddie Robson script and, ooh look, there's a nazi armband on the cover! At least Bernice's tenth season's going to end on a high, right? Plump up the cushions everyone!

One has come to expect intricate plots from Young Master Robson but more recently one has also come to realise that he has been seriously over-stretched. More than a dozen audio dramas in less than four years is a lot. Too many in fact and 'Secret Origins' sounds like a great writer in desperate need of a holiday.

Here's what it really sounds like. An over-worked author who, being talented, has lots of interesting little snippets on his hard drive but who, having taken one or two writing jobs too many, also has a rather tight schedule. So he hastily links the bits together and puts a frame around it all in the form of an immense, tacked-on postscript which explains away why the story didn't much sense.

And at the end of that postscript, we have the ominous words: "I think it's time to go back..." (What?! To the Braxiatel Collection? I thought we'd ditched all that!) Yes, 'Back' is most definitely the word.
