This is a cracking release, but one for serious fans and not for beginners. It brings together plot strands that have been running (intentionally and unintentionally) since Sylvester McCoy’s third TV season s the Doctor. That’s stretching back some way! There are so many references to past adventures that, as I said, you need to be a hard core fan to get half of what is going on.
This follows on from Black and White, where the Doctor is missing and Ace, Sally, Lysandra and Hex are searching for him. Using Weyland’s Sheild they are transported to a strange flat world that looks a lot like a chessboard. What follows is a stonkingly good tale in which the Doctor’s recent schemes are revealed, along with the schemes of an old foe. It turns out that not only has the Doctor been manipulating things, but so have several of his old enemies and as a result at least one of his companions has had a rough time of it. And it’s only going to get worse.
I can’t begin to summarise the plot without giving too much away.Read more ›
Ace, Hex, Sally and Lysandra have travelled in the Tardis, using Wayland's Shield to try and find the Doctor. They don't know where he is, or what has happened to him, but they feel sure the Shield is the key to finding him and working out what's going on. They are all, in their own ways, very unsure about what is going on with the Doctor, and what game he is playing, and they all react differently. The Doctor, meanwhile has found himself the `guest' of an old enemy. But the game that this Elder God is playing is a bigger game than the Doctor had earlier thought, and he's not the pivotal piece in the end game. While the fate of the universe depends on what the Doctor and his friends may do, there are bigger and more dangerous games being played on the board around them.
This is a great story, and a great finale to this very impressive trilogy. The casting of John Standing as Fenric, Tim Treloar as The Ancient One, Blake Ritson as Hurmzid, Gus Brown as Weyland and the return of Elizabeth Bennett are top-notch and they all play their roles to the hilt and spectacularly.Read more ›
It runs for four episodes. And is complete on two cds. The episodes vary in length from twenty five to thirty five minutes [approx].
Have you seen all of the Seventh Doctor's tv stories? [Regardless of what you thought of them].
Have you heard all the audios listed in my reply to the comment on my review of Black and White (Doctor Who)?
If you're reading this then your answer to question one will doubtless be yes.
But if your answer to question two is no, then go no further. And don't listen to this story either till your answer is yes. You'll thank me for it.
Because this one is the culmination of story arcs that go back a long long way, and you will get far more out of it if you are familiar will all those stories I've mentioned.
You may not even want to look at the back and front cover of the box of this one till you've heard Black and White's final scene. You'll thank me for that as well.
If you did answer yes/yes, then read on:
This story picks up right from where the very final scene of black and white ended. And then continues right on. With more for the two characters who were in that moment.
Guest actor John Standing, playing a character introduced in that scene, makes for an utterly superb villain with a mesmerisingly good performance. He and Sylvester Mccoy have some excellent scenes together.
Meantime, the Doctor's companions have arrived on the scene as well. Prepared to fight to save the day.Read more ›
