fire and ice,
This review is from: Frostfire (Doctor Who: The Companion Chronicles) (Audio CD)
first in a series of audio plays that feature actors who played companions to doctor who on tv, reprising their roles and telling stories - in the format of a talking book - of untold adventures for their character and the doctor.
This one features maureen o'brien as the first doctor's companion vicki. in this story she and the doctor and fellow companion steven visit london in 1814, and go to the last great frostfair on the frozen thames. they meet jane austen. and a deadly threat to the world.
And at the same time, years after she left the tardis, vicki is relating this as a tale to someone. who is imprisoned and desperate to escape. do the two stories tie together?
a wonderful listen. superbly read by maureen o'brien, this brilliantly recreates the atmosphere and style of 1814 london, and it's a great doctor who story in it's own right as well. things do tie together very neatly at the end.
It runs for an hour in total, over one disc, with two half an hour long episodes.
an excellent start to this range
