GREAT AUSSIE FEEL TO A GREAT AUDIO....,
This review is from: Dreamtime (Doctor Who) (Audio CD)
For a start Hex does seem to get quite a good amount of stuff to do. Its not as if hes absent from most of the story is it? Philip Olivier is just as good if not better on here than in his debut the Harvest.
And the aussie setting is interesting. Ayres rock floating on a chunk of debris and floating off into deep space. Thats an original idea for once. And yes, this story is actually highly entertaining with its stone ghosts and great australian feel. Getting genuine aussies is a good idea too, and gives the story a more realistic feel.
The galyari are a strong race of aliens and i feel they are more interesting in this story than in the Sandman. And the digeridoo music score in some parts is cool and different. This story just highlights how flexible the format of Doctor Who can be. And its even better when the story actually works because of it.
The opening episode especially is creepy and eerie, a great bit of acting from the three regulars of Sylv SPohie and Phil. They are one of the best teams that big finish has helped to create. They are just totally different but totally cool characters that make any story sound great.
Simon A Forward gives us a good story about myths and fairytales, but also with a good amount of sci fi to keep alien enthuisiasts happy and entertained. Baiame is a great character. So overall this play is well made and interestingly done. A great story again...
