This is the 186th story in the Main Range series by Big Finish, first released in 2014. Written by Gordon Rennie and Emma Beeby, this story features the Fifth Doctor (Peter Davison), travelling with Nyssa (Sarah Sutton). This is the second in a trilogy of stories featuring the Fifth Doctor and Nyssa, which began with Moonflesh and concludes with Masquerade.

Fresh from their adventure in the Suffolk countryside, the Doctor and Nyssa have landed in the Tardis in what seems to be a large tomb. There are holograms and cryptograms in the pyramid-like structure, which the Doctor discovers is a tomb-ship, the last resting place of the God-King of the Arrit, an advanced and very ancient race, now long extinct. But somebody else is already in the tomb, looking for the treasure; and they’ll stop at absolutely nothing to get it.

I really liked this story. In the writers’ notes, they reference such things as Alien, and Rendezvous with Rama, and the Warhammer 40,000 universe; Dungeons and Dragons, Indiana Jones, and Lovecraft. All these things are there, nicely given homage, and wrapped up in a tale that intrigues as well as entertains. It really is a great rollicking adventure, with lots of danger, traps, deadly creatures, hidden threats and last-minute nasty surprises all the way through.

The authors are both well-known and respected comic book writers. I think this shows in this work, which has a very ‘graphic’, visual feel to it, I think. They have also written The Doomsday Quatrain for Big Finish, and sections of another story, 1001 Nights.

By Paul Tapner TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 4 Jun. 2014
Format: Audio CD
A new Doctor Who audio story. Featuring Peter Davison as the Doctor, and Sarah Sutton as his companion Nyssa.

This is the second in a new trilogy for them. Which started with Moonflesh (Doctor Who). Let's just say that the stories in the trilogy aren't quite as standalone as you might think, and you will get more out of this one if you have heard Moonflesh.

It runs for four parts. Spread over two cd's. Episodes run from twenty five to thirty minutes in length [approx.].

The story is set aboard a vast pyramid. Which is floating through space. This is a tomb ship. Tomb of the last god king of the arrit, a very advanced race. Long since extinct.

An avaricious lady and her children are searching the place for treasure. But it's a deadly environment, full of traps.

When the TARDIS arrives, and the Doctor finds out something about the Tomb, everyone on board faces a race against time to survive...

From the off this does have the feel of it's era. And is a story that might just have worked on tv at the time. Although audio and the imagination make the visuals stronger than 1980's bbc special effects could have managed.

Virna, the leader of the tomb raiders, is a very strong character. A totally appalling individual, but a well acted and believable creation. You might be hard pressed to remember the names of many of the other supporting characters, but the actors do well and make them all individual and different. Particularly one who spends a lot of the story working with Nyssa. The two having a good dynamic.

It does try hard to be a roller coaster ride, and it succeeds at this.

This story is very well written and Peter Davison and Sarah Sutton are really good as The Doctor and Nyssa. I have always had a soft spot for all of the 5th Doctor stories as he is my favourite Doctor. There are some bits that are a bit boring but overall a great story, I won't ruin the ending but I will say that the Doctor may get a new companion, someone who has featured in an audio story before.

HASH(0x966bd870) out of 5 stars Great Fun! 3 May 2015
By Joseph Baneth Allen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Just finished listening to "Doctor Who #186 - Tomb Ship" released by Big Finish Productions. Spoilers ahead...
The Fifth Doctor and Nyssa arrive at what first appears to be one of those dank and dark tunnels the TARDIS occassionally lands in - after a while, the Doctor, whatever his incarnation, will have to admit that his companions are right - you've seen one, you've seen them all, just different experiences in different times.
This time the TARDIS has landed inside a tomb ship of one of the God-Kings of the Arrit - a civilzation so advanced from near the beginning of the universe that had the Arrit not gone extinct that they would have mastered time and space travel long before the Time Lords had done so the Fifth Doctor says.
Yet, prior to the Doctor's and Nyssa's arrival on the tomb ship, a family of tob raiders had arrived led by Virna - a rather nasty piece of motherhood who is willing to sacrifice all of her children for what she believes is the greatest treasure of the known universe.
Pity Virna didn't brush up on her ancient Arrit history since death is the greatest treasure to the Arrit and the tomb ship is riddled with nasty death traps designed to test the intelligence and worthiness of those who would seek the God-King's inner most chamber.
Help does arrive for the Doctor and Nyssa in the form of a rather unexpected stowaway in the TARDIS, who promises to make life very interesting for the Doctor and Nyssa, if they all manage to survive.
Nyssa doesn't seem to like this new companion.
Great fun! Really Tense Adventure!
Five Stars!
