3.0 out of 5 stars Nice ideas, uneven execution, 21 Nov. 2004
This review is from: Medicinal Purposes (Doctor Who) (Audio CD)
Medicinal Purposes has the 6th Doctor and Evelyn encountering infamous Scottish murderers and grave robbers Burke and Hare. It's a suitably macabre setting, and the backdrop for an interesting tale of a time traveller vivisecting humans to find a cure for an alien disease. Leslie Philips makes an engaging villain, but unfortunately the interesting vivisection angle gets pushed aside for some boring nonsense about providing grand guignol entertainment for aliens, and the plot gets tied up in time loops leaving Evelyn a virtual spectator. The Doctor is also curiously a big fan of the murderous Burke and Hare, which while being suitably alien goes against the grain of the Doctor's usual morality. An interesting play, with some great central ideas, but ultimately the execution is very uneven, resulting in a fairly average story.
