This review is from: Thicker Than Water (Doctor Who) (Audio CD)
This 6th Doctor audio adventure is a superior sequel to the so-so story Arrangements For War, and also serves as the departure story for original audio companion Evelyn Smythe. The storyline is neatly divided into two halves: firstly dealing with rebels opposed to the scientific experimentation with alien technology - which leads to both Evelyn and Mel becoming involved n a hostage situation, and the second half, which deals with mysterious goings on in a hospital where Evelyn has had a heart complaint seen to. Full of vivid characters, solid plotting and menacing moments, with a nicely played overarching theme of the dysfunctional relationship between fathers and daughters mirrored in the Doctor and Evelyn's relationship, the only possible downside here will be for those listeners not fully au fait with Evelyn's audio adventures, as not only is this a sequel to Arrangements For War but you'll need to have heard Project: Twilight and Project: Lazarus to make sense of the coda. For those up on their continuity though, this is wonderful stuff.
