As the Doctor and Romana seek a way to get back to N-Space, they find what seems too good to be true; a CVE forming that they should be able to reach in time to find their way back. But what does the forming of the CVE mean for the nearby planet of Ballustra, where Marni Tellis has been investigating brutal murders; and is someone or something coming the other way through the CVE?
The voice of Suanne Braun as Marni Tellis sounded so familiar that I had to do some more research - now I remember her from Stargate SG-1 when she played Hathor. Her voice is very smooth and distinct; she plays the part in this story of a law enforcement officer with precision and clarity; great casting I thought.
This is a great Doctor Who story; a good and solid story of the time of the Doctor and Roman in E-Space, and a good overall Doctor Who `classic'-feeling story of the Fourth Doctor. Thoroughly recommended in the Companion Chronicles.
And they run for two episodes of thirty minutes each and are on a single cd.
This one sees the return of Lalla Ward to the role of Romana, which she performed on TV opposite Tom Baker's Doctor in his later years in the part, and which she's played in two previous companion chronicles and some other audio projects also.
The invasion of e-space is written by Andrew Smith, who wrote the 1980 fourth doctor tv story full circle, which intoduced the character of Adric as a companion. And it's set between the next two stories State of Decay and Warrior's Gate, which saw the TARDIS crew trying to escape from another universe known as e-space.
In this story, whilst they look for a way back to their universe, they find aliens from there have created a gateway in and out of e space of their own. And they are using it for an attack on a planet called Ballustra.
Marni Tellus, a female detective from the planet is caught up in action with the TARDIS crew when the aliens attack. And they quickly find that not just the fate of Ballustra is at stake. Because if the aliens aren't stopped, the fate of both universes could hang in the balance as well...
This tries to be epic space opera, and whilst it could be a rather dry accounting of events - the narrative device has it that both Romana and Marni are recording their stories for posterity - it actually works rather well, thanks to the two actresses.Read more ›
