Sunless but not joyless,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Beyond the Sun (New Adventures) (Mass Market Paperback)
This is the third New Adventures novel to feature Benny Summerfield as the chief protagonist, and in my opinion it's the best by far to date. Matthew Jones keeps the pace moving nicely, and draws some intriguing and imaginative characters. The sinister 'Sunless' are memorable villains, and Benny's roguish ex-husband Jason Kane provides the catalyst for a memorable adventure.
As with the two previous Big Finish audio adaptations of Bernice Summerfield novels, this feels a bit flat in terms of production, however Lisa Bowerman is as excellent as ever; capturing Benny's voice exactly as I have always imagined it, and supported by a top-notch cast. The latter includes two former Doctor Who companion actressess: Anneke Wills who played Polly alongside the first Doctor, and Sophie Aldred who was Ace to Sylvester McCoy's seventh Doctor. Staying pretty faithful to the original novel, this is an entertaining listen and a worthy addition to the growing canon of Doctor Who spin-off adventures.
