This review is from: Doctor Who: The Forever Trap: No. 2 (Dr Who Audio Original 2) (Audio CD)
This is one of three David Tennant era Dr Who Audio's I recently purchased (the other being Pest Control and The Nemonite Invasion).
Back when Catherine Tate was first announced as a companion I had a few doubts about her, mainly because she wasn't really known for her acting. However the doubts were unfounded and just as in the tv show she demonstrates here that she is a very capable actress and is able to tell this story convincingly and using a wide variety of accents to do it.
To the story itself - this adventure begins when they become trapped in what appears to be a rather non-threatening 'dream' environment where they are expected to spend the rest of their days in a happy contented retirement. If only they weren't there because they'd been scammed by a sneaky viral holographic salesman invading the Tardis!
It very quickly becomes apparent that not everything is as perfect as it seems within the Edifice and they embark on a determined quest to find the development's 'Super' for some answers (and an escape) which lands them in more than one tricky situation. However, the more they explore the more you suspect that there's more going on in the Edifice than meets the eye...
I thought The Nemonite Invasion was better but this was a close second. An enjoyable tale.
