Very Doctor who in its plot, monsters that have lived forever but have remained hidden and then killed very quickly. Forgetting my comments its still a good story although a little predictable. But where is the plot line from the first story, lacks something without an arc

Engaging, Focused Plot

Though Snake Head is a very different story than Time Heals, and thus leaves the listener wondering what is to become of the loose ends left dangling there, what we have here is a solid, focused story, in contrast to the somewhat hyperactive, disjointed style of Time Heals. After a disturbingly disfigured dead body is found in the area, Dalton and Chaudrey eventually find themselves investigating the possibility that there is an Albanian vampire on the loose in Southend. It's a simple story, but it is well-written, well-acted, and really works for audio, whereas much of Time Heals did not. The writing and production makes for really good visualization, and there are some truly creepy moments near the end, as we experience the creature and its very foreign, blood-curdling strangeness.

In some ways, I wanted to give Snake Head a higher rating - it is a well-designed, well-executed audio production. What limits it is the story as a whole. Though the story is good, solid and easy to follow, with some good chemistry between the regulars, it's just not a particularly fantastic story. Oh, and by the way, the Brig is completely absent from this one.
