I can honestly say the second part improves on the first and left me feeling that I can't wait for the third.
as usual there are four episodes each running roughly twenty five minutes spread over two discs with eighteen minutes of interviews with the cast and crew at the end of each disc. there's a trailer for recent release Orbis (Doctor Who: The New Eighth Doctor Adventures).
the trailer for next regular release Key 2 Time: The Chaos Pool (Doctor Who) can be found at the end of episode four.
the story involves the doctor and current companion amy getting stranded in 9th century sudan after an encounter with cosmic being the black guardian. the latter is played by david troughton, son of second doctor patrick, and he sounds so much like his father's it quite remarkable. the character is written rather differently from the way he was played on tv, and this new version of him - basically a being of chaos with a sharp with - is hugely entertaining.
the doctor and amy have to find each other and try to get off world. but they're in the middle of a duel between two ancient enemies and they've still got to find the latest segment of the key to time.
this is a hugely entertaining story, as a result of some strong characterisation and an interesting period setting. there's also a great amount of humour but that all arises out of character interaction and that makes it work superbly. add in some excellent incidental music that fits the setting and the style of the story, and you've got an excellent and very entertaining cd. well worth a listen
This adventure is a decided improvement over the previous `Judgement of Isskar'. Five and Amy cast in their lot with an unlikely ally, and are cast back into the ancient Sudan to find the next segment of the Key to Time. An interesting story unfolds in which the Doctor has to work out where the segment is, and somehow keep it from both the Black and the White Guardians. The Black Guardian is in particular an interesting character here, played with a sly wink by the ever reliable David Troughton. I loved the idea of the White Guardian not being as morally right and the Black Guardian not being as morally wrong as their titles would suggest, but rather they are representations of two equally valid viewpoints and it would be disastrous for the universe if either one of them get their way. It's an interesting concept, and well played out. There are also some interesting ruminations on the nature of slavery, and waht it is to be the companion of the Doctor. It's got lots of adventure thrown in with all this philosophical stuff, and is an all round delight. It's still not as good as the best Five stories (Circular time, The Boy That Time Forgot, Singularity, etc) but it's not bad at all. 4 stars.
This story is dire. Silly but not amusing. Boring and irritating.
The whole trilogy is disappointing and a waste of a great story device in the Key to Time. This second story is the weakest. You will not miss much by skipping it and going straight to 'The Chaos Pool' and the (at least far lesser) disappointments that await you there.

The story re-introduces the Black and White Guardians, though it's not quite how we remembered them on TV. This different iteration of the Guardians by entropy setting in across the universe. It's a clever idea that makes them far more accessible for this story and the role they play in it.
The story is far from perfect. The "Previously On" bit at the beginning was so out of place on Doctor Who that it was jarring, and there are a few too many plot conveniences. Still, I found this is a fun and entertaining two hours.
