4.0 out of 5 stars Dopplegangers, 15 April 2009
This review is from: Other Lives (Doctor Who) (Audio CD)
London, 1851.

Scene of the Great Exhibition of the Works of Industry of All Nations. Scene also of a plot to un-seat the government, de-throne the monarch and start a republic. If the Duke of Wellington himself is to be believed...

While the Doctor and Charley are drawn into the murky world of nineteenth-century politics, C'rizz struggles to maintain his dignity against growing odds. What begins as an attempt to prevent murder quickly becomes a desperate race to avert revolution. Separated from the TARDIS, the travellers are left to wonder if they'll get their own lives back or be forever entangled with the lives of others.

And who is Mrs Georgina Marlow? What need does she feel the Doctor can satisfy?

I am personally a big fan of Doctor Who set in Victorian England; some of the best stories have come from this juxtaposition (The Unquiet Dead, The Next Doctor, The peerless 'Talons of Weng-Chiang' to name but three). Other Lives is a light-hearted romp and is easy listening without any of the continuity and baggage that too often accompanies these audio plays. Having said that it is light-hearted, C'rizz certainly wouldn't agree as he is captured by the grotesquely Dickensian Jacob Crackles and turned into a freak show. Overall this is a thoroughly engaging and very strong Doctor Who story and I just hope that there are more like this in the bag.
