Customer Review

on 3 January 2010
This is a everything that 'The Nightmare Fair' isn't. I compare the two because they both feature the same foe (who I shall not name), and unlike 'The Nightmare Fair' this is an outstanding return for him. Whereas 'The Nightmare Fair' is painfully straightforward and far too retro for its own good, this is complex. I genuinely did not have a clue what was going on for the first two episodes. The cliffhangers are good and in the second episode it is revealed that the tables are turned for this scheming Doctor and his companions as unlike them the Doctor is as 'in the dark' as the listener. For all these reasons this holds up well to repeat listenings.

Doctor Who is going from strength to strength on audio at the moment, surpassing the tv series. In fact comparing this story (and those that follow) to the Big Finish 'lost adventures' series of 80s tv scripts shows just how brilliant and inventive Big Finish have become. I particularly love the 7th doctor, Ace & Hex in the majority of their adventures and look forward to the imminent 7th doctor & Klein pairing. (Remember her from Colditz?)

Buy this, then buy 'Enemy of the Daleks' and 'The Angel of Scutari' to complete a wonderful and acclaimed trilogy.
