The Runaway Train- Not A Runaway Success.
on 14 September 2013
Matt Smith reads this story and that is basically the problem- it would have been so much better dramatized with a full cast like the generally excellent Big Finish.
Matt Smith reads the story well and tackles the American voices from the time of the American Civil War but you can always tell that it is Matt Smith reading this but he is adequate.
The story involves a branch of the Confederate Army who has discovered a strange object.
The Doctor needs to retrieve it before the end of the world comes- at about 9.01 that evening.
He has landed and met a motley bunch of misfits to help him.
There are a few clever twist but this is an average story read in an average way, indeed editions of this were issued free with the Daily Telegraph which gives you an idea of its worth.
Average in all respects.
