All too brief,
This review is from: Doctor Who: Shadow of Death (Destiny of the Doctor 2) (Audio CD)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A solid story as part of an 11 adventrue cycle loosely connected to each other, this adventure is based around the Doctor's second incarnation.
Frazier Hines provides an excellent and at times uncanny portrayal of the late Patrick Troughton as well as voicing his own character, Jamie MacCrimmon.
The story is an antypical'base under siege' scenario set around a pulsar, with an excellent 'enemy.
Tension builds as the travellers are mistaken for attackers, only to be attacked themselves and therefore trusted by the human occupants. The Doctor is split from the main group...is cornered by 'The Quiet Ones' (no jokes please)...and then...it's finished.
This could have been really, really good but the story is done and dusted almost as soon as the aliens turn up...the excellent script just stops.
A real shame - but brilliant work from the cast.
