5.0 out of 5 stars By zeus, 2 May 2007
This review is from: Immortal Beloved (Doctor Who) (Audio CD)
Another forty five minute long audio adventure for the eighth doctor who and his fiesty companion lucie miller. Paul Mcgann and sheridan smith who play the duo are an excellent pairing, and their chemistry together is a treat to listen to.

In this story they arrive on an alien world just in time to stop two young lovers from carrying out a suicide pact. The world is ruled by humans who claim to be the greek gods. And they have a dark secret, which ensures they survive and prosper. How will the doctor and lucie deal with this? And do they have the right?

This is like the best star trek episodes, in that it presents the listener with a moral dilemma, and you are forced to draw your own conclusions about it at the same time as the characters in the story do. The cast also includes Ian McNiece as Zeus, who turns out to be a wonderful vocal talent and has some great scenes with the two leads.

It all leads to quite a satisfying conclusion to a very good story. There are elements of the plot that will be familiar to people familiar with the greats of literary science fiction, but this is a fresh and interesting take on them.

The disc is finished off with several interviews with cast members, which are nothing special but worth listening to
