oranges and lemons,
This review is from: The Haunting of Thomas Brewster (Doctor Who) (Audio CD)
another audio adventure for peter davison's doctor who, on this occasion partnered with sarah sutton as his companion nyssa. The story runs for four twenty five minute long episodes spread over two cd's, and the first cd ends with twenty three minutes of interviews with the cast.
The second has fourteen minutes more interviews, mostly with the writer.
The story centres around a young man called thomas brewster who lives in victorian london, and who goes to the workhouse after his mother dies when he's very young. Thomas has to struggle to survive in the harsh victorian undercity but he's being haunted. the ghost of his mother keeps appearing, and she wants him to do something.
And who are the two strangers who say they've arrived too early?
An absolute classic audio this one, and not one you can say too much about without giving spoilers away. The style of each episode changes from ghost story for the first to time shenanigans for the second to a house under siege for the third. All of the supporting cast are excellent, particularly leslie ash who does several different roles, and there are a great many twists and turns to the story. and you won't forget the ending in a hurry.
If you like this one be sure to get the upcoming story the boy who time forgot, as it builds on things from this one.
One of the best in the big finish range, and well worth getting.
It also contains some fantastic incidental music that you won't get off your mind in a hurry
