4.0 out of 5 stars A Wintry Affair, 18 Sept. 2007
This review is from: Frozen Time (Doctor Who) (Audio CD)
Frozen Time continues the Seventh Doctor (Sylvester McCoy) strand of the Big Finish Doctor Who range. Featuring the welcome return of one of the classic series' most understated villains (the clue is in the title) and for once featuring no companions, this is a vibrant and accomplished success.
The story begins with The Doctor being ambushed on an unnamed planet and appearing to drown. Fast-forward several million years and his body is discovered by a group of explorers led by the sneeringly arrogant Lord Barset, who is retracing the steps of one of his ancestors who set out on the journey and never returned. However, when they discover The Doctor's body it is sealed in a tomb of ice...
Maryam D'Abo is a welcome addition to the cast as French scientist Genevieve whilst Anthony Calf and Gregg Newton excel as the shortsighted Barset and his downtrodden minion, Ben.
The story provides a welcome reminder of how good McCoy can be when surrounded by a decent cast and cracks along at a fair pace; The Doctor's opponents are solid and suitably villainous and the entire cast just seem to be enjoying themselves.
