5.0 out of 5 stars Spare Parts for Dark Hearts, 1 Nov. 2008
This review is from: Spare Parts (Doctor Who) (Audio CD)
I've listened to a couple of these audio plays now, and I have to say, out of the ones I have heard so far (Red Dawn, Return of the Daleks and Sirens of Time)this was my favourite and I will definately be listening to it again.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading 'Lungbarrow', and snapped this up when I saw it was by Marc Platt, not least because he writes excellent literature. I wasn't at all disappointed by the scripting of this story, it is crafted and executed really well by both writer and cast alike.

The story centres around the origin of the Cybermen, in the doctors Fifth Incarnation. Whilst it is true Peter Davison's voice sounds older now, i felt he gave a good performance, I even laughed a couple of times. Really the best thing about this play is the convincing performance of the cast.

The downsides: the cyberman voices really sounded a bit like K-9, and weren't especially chilling, I think. Also there is a really annoying Liverpudlian innit. He's annoying because all he does is Moan, Moan, Moan the whole way thru, although I'm sure that's meant to be like that, and the audience isn't supposed to like him anyway, I feel the role could have been written a bit better.

However, these small factors don't detract from a thoroughly enjoyable play. I think this is worth a 'once over', if nothing else.
