5.0 out of 5 stars The Time Museum, 1 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Time Museum (Doctor Who: The Companion Chronicles) (Audio CD)
This is another in the Companion Chronicles series, which features a past companion of one of the Doctor’s incarnations recounting a tale. Often they are tales of a time from when they travelled with the Doctor, though sometimes as in this case this tale stands outside the time when the companion travelled with the Doctor.

In this story William Russell reprises the role of Ian Chesterton; now elderly he has awoken to find himself in a Time Museum, the only other person there being the curator of the Museum, Pendolin. They must flee through the Museum revisiting Ian’s memories of his time with the Doctor to escape marauding beings who are destroying the Museum and the exhibits. But of course, there’s much more to it than that.

This was a brilliant story; clever and complex, yet familiar enough to a long-time fan of the ‘classic’ Doctor Who stories to be quite reminiscent. Ian’s memories are evocative and bring back our own memories of stories from long ago – visiting Skaro, the Cave of Skulls, the Aztecs, the Crusades and many more. And William Russell does an absolutely brilliant job as Ian – his characterisation is still, after so many years spot on; and his rendition of the Doctor (the First, as played by William Hartnell) is uncannily like the Doctor was.

This story is a worthy addition to the Companion Chronicles, and indeed to the whole Doctor Who universe. It is one that will repay repeated listening, definitely recommended.

I'm pretty sure he calls everyone his 'dear' :-)

I know what you mean about the Companion Chronicles; I wasn't sure I would like them, and some are definitely better than others. I liked the way this one evoked memories of very early William Hartnell stories, and I don't recall anything that William Russell was involved in to be less than excellent - for instance, the Rocket Men stories. He really lifts everything to a great standard and it always feels like 'classic' Doctor Who, as do the First Doctor Lost Stories.

I think timelord007's having an identity crisis; perhaps he's triggered a regeneration? He won't know whether to be a diablocial timelord or a comedian next.

No, can't buy into it I'm afraid - it has to be Roger Delgado, Anthony Ainley or Geoffrey Beevers.

Roger D & G Beevers for me everytime.
