By the end of the second story The Acheron Pulse the Sixth Doctor believes he has resolved the problem, moral, ethical and otherwise of the Wrath and leaves well pleased with his work. Some fifty years later the Seventh Doctor, as played by Sylvester McCoy is caught up in the long-simmering aftermath that still seems to plague the Drashani Empire.
This story is rather cleverly played out - the first cd (made up of two parts) I thought it was all a bit pat, as the Doctor seemed to know what was going on (even though we didn't), and I thought for a while it was going to be one of those `too clever for its own good' stories where it all falls into place too easily. But when you get to the second cd (third and fourth parts of the story) it all comes together for the listener and becomes a much more overall satisfying story, which is very cleverly and craftily put together.
I thoroughly enjoyed this story, and absolutely loved the three overarching stories in this storyline. The Wrath are a great creation, and in this third story they are utterly enthralling - I kept playing the scenes with them over and over just to hear their voices - brilliant. This story, and the three stories in the storyline are totally and utterly recommended. This is fantastic Doctor Who and should not be missed by any Doctor fan.
Being the third part of a trilogy, this spends a bit of time wrapping up loose ends, and it is recommended listening to the first two instalments, ‘The Burning Prince’ and ‘The Acheron Pulse’ first in order to get the most out of this.
I’ll have to keep this vague so as not to give any spoilers. Following the theme of the Doctor dealing with the consequences of his past, this finds him on the run from a bounty hunter whilst trying to sort out the problems his pride created at the end of the previous adventure, some 50 years after his previous visit to the Drashani empire. The narrative is fractured and utilises his ability to travel in time very nicely, giving us a story that keeps the listener on their toes as they try to follow it, but not so complicated that it detracts from the fun of it. It’s the sort of sotry structure that suits the manipulative Seventh Doctor very well.Read more ›
