5.0 out of 5 stars Crime Traveller, 7 Jun. 2011
This review is from: Crime of the Century (Doctor Who: The Lost Stories) (Audio CD)
Continuing on from the excellent Thin Ice (Doctor Who: The Lost Stories) is the next story originally written with the consequently cancelled 1990 series of Doctor Who in mind. The Seventh Doctor has more universal chess games in mind as he manipulates people and events for reasons unknown; companion Ace, possibly my favourite of the Time Lord's travelling companions, is sent to the Middle East on a perilous errand, while The Doctor is reunited with safecracker Raine and her dodgy East End father Markus. All these characters are part of The Time Lord's masterplan, but as the blurb says: '...even masterplans can go awry...'
Sylvester McCoy's puckish Seventh Doctor has gone from strength to strength during the Big Finish years, whilst Sophie Aldred's wonderfully ballsy Ace still sounds like the bolshy seventeen year-old she was in the original TV serials. Andrew Cartmel's script, plus great support from Eastenders' Ricky Groves and Beth Chalmers as the urbane yet vulnerable Raine all gel together perfectly to create another superb 'Lost Story'.
