Review.
This 2nd of the final Lost Stories of 4 adventures is a Second Doctor, Jamie, Zoe adventure that was originally made for television & has been adapted to a audio format by Catherine Harvey whom has done a exellent adaption of this engaging adventure.

Somewhere out in the far reaches of the universe a immortal being is waiting, A God like entity is in a realm of ticking clocks.

This God like being is in the realms of outer space, As the clocks ticks & the seconds tick slowly away to zero this entity is scheming & plotting a grand plan a trap is being set for a certain time traveller a traveller whom wanders the universe in a Blue Police Box the Timelord known as the Doctor!

Can this Godlike Entity Hecuba be the Doctor's final conundrum in a realm of time as Hecuba has all the time in the universe but for the Doctor's his time maybe up.

This is a truly great audio adventure by Catherine Harvey whom adapted the material from Brian Hayles scripts.

Catherine's ability to write the characteristics of the second Doctor, Jamie & Zoe is a huge plus for this adventure as Catherine captures the mood of classic series 6 to perfection & the character of Hecuba is very disturbing & sinister that has ties to the Doctor's past.

There is also a great mystery to this adventure that suits the Lost Stories format & is a great foil for the second Doctor.

Frazer Hines & Wendy Padbury share the narration here with Frazer Hines capturing the likeness of Pat Troughtons Doctor's mannerisms to perfection.

This is a most entertaining adventure so sit back & relax switch the lights off & share with The Doctor in this exellent audio adventure.

I'm thinking of buying this one too. I like to hear more of the Second Doctor with Jamie and Zoe.
I enjoyed your reviews on 'Lord of the Red Planet' and 'The Queen of Time' very much.
Well done. Tim.
