Light Entertainment

Firstly, bravo for the new/old theme music for these new Eighth Doctor stories. Very cool - a great improvement.

Dead London is a case of a story with a very absurd ending revelation about what's been going on - specifically, where it turns out the entire story has taken place - but the script and the way it is played out is so brilliant that it ends up being a very fun episode anyway. Clare Buckfield's Spring-Heeled Sophie in particular is great fun to listen to, as are Paul and Sheridan. I really can't say much more about it. A fun listen - some light entertainment.

A fair start but not the best

Usally the opening story to a new season of anything is a little slow. Which is what i found about this new BBC7 Production. I was in the garden while i listened to this, and I had to go back more than a few times. This story just didn't grip me.
The pase and plot was very slow and then the ending seamed rushed. Which is a shame as this is the first BBC7 I have come across that i didn't want to listen to again. But I supose that just proves that you can't please everybody.
This story will not put me of BBC7 audios as i have loved most of them (out of my top 5 Audio adventure 3 are BBC7). If it has put you off them then i sagest you go and listen to the next one in the series Max Warp - Its absolutly brillant!!!

Good build-up, poor climax

This audio fails only because of its poor climax, as it starts well; with a confusing and gripping plot featuring different Londons in different times, all connected by a river.
Unfortunately the villain is weak and is defeated in less that 2 minutes, which gives this my score of 6.

Go back
