This review is from: The Game (Doctor Who) (Audio CD)
The doctor and nyssa visit a harsh world where people are crazy about a very violent sport. A visiting diplomat is trying to get the sport ended. But why does he feel out of his depth? And what villains are lurking the shadows? There is more to this world than meets the eye.
An attempt at doing a six part story that just about succeeds, by virtue of a few short episodes, this is a pretty decent audio. Nyssa gets a romance. The doctor gets some moments of moral indignation. And the story is kept going by new elements appearing as we go along, the same way they used to do it in tv six parters. This never feels like padding.
And the guest cast includes william russell - once ian chesterton in the tv days of william hartnell's doctor - as the diplomat. It is a pleasure to hear him again, and he turns in a superb performance. I'd almost recommend this on those grounds alone, but everything else about the story is good enough to make it a definite 4/5
