Whispers of Terror
on 14 January 2016
This is the third story in the Main Range series by Big Finish, first released in 1999. Written by Justin Richards, this story features the Sixth Doctor, as played by Colin Baker, with Peri, as played by Nicola Bryant.
The Tardis has landed somewhere, and the Doctor is keen to explore, although Peri’s first impression of the rather dull-looking corridoors does not bode well, as far as she’s concerned. They are in the Museum of Aural Antiquities, but somebody else is already there, and they seem to be up to no good. When the Doctor and Peri find a dead body, they are thrown into the thick of things, and that includes the aftermath of the recent death of Visteen Krane, noted actor, and potential Presidential candidate.
This is a great story, and one which captures wonderfully the rather bombastic and authoritative Sixth Doctor at his best. Colin Baker plays the role to the hilt in this story, which sees him ordering people about, being argumentative, and generally trying to get his own way throughout; but he is also compassionate, caring and determined to see things put right. Peri doesn’t get a lot to do in this story, but the other supporting cast are really well fleshed out. I liked the concept for this story, and the setting, and the way the story worked its way out in to the open. I think this is a really excellent story, particularly for one so early in Big Finish’s releases, and I would happily listen to it again.
