4.0 out of 5 stars you have the right to remain silent, 20 Mar. 2008
This review is from: The Condemned (Doctor Who) (Audio CD)
another audio adventure for colin baker's doctor who. as usual this comes in four twenty five minute long episodes, spread over two discs, and each disc ends with interviews with the cast and crew of the story.

A difficult one to review this without giving too much away, but since all the potential spoilers are detailed on the cd inlay anyway I might as well [so you may want to think before reading further]

charley pollard one time audio companion of the eighth doctor, was last heard at the end of the story the girl who never was, being rescued from a dead world by the arrival of the tardis. only it clearly wasn't her doctor at the controls...

we find from this that she's been rescued by the sixth doctor, at a time when he's travelling on his own. the resulting open scenes are great and highly entertaining because charley has to be careful about what she says since she thinks the eighth doctor died. thus for long term fans we have the bonus of a favourite character being taken in a new direction and for casual listeners the intriguing mystery of who this person the doctor has picked up is.

beyond that, the tardis comes to manchester in 2008, and the two quickly get separated when caught up in a murder mystery.

This is solved over the next four episodes, and whilst the plot isn't desperately special it's got some very nice ideas and some really creepy moments, and it's performed by a good guest cast who flesh out their characters well. the end promises more adventures for this tardis crew - charley has never been to modern earth before and she gets some great scenes as a result by virtue of her unfamiliarity with modern things - and I look forward to them.

A good little audio story.
