The Dark Shadows range maintains the consistently high standard. Terry Molloy puts in a nice performance as Moloch, whilst Fay Masterson's Sally is an interesting foil for Quentin Collins. Thanks to a little recap and some helpful infodump, the story stands up well alone. With vampires, werewolves and zombies, the heart continues to lie in the human story at the centre. Twisty turny fun and games.
Reviewer Says: No previous stories required.

Ah, the Island of Doctor Molloy ... er, Moreau ... Moloch! Well it isn't quite, but I couldn't resist the inference.
This has more twists and turns than a corkscrew, revelation after revelation, and all of it in a nicely conveyed, and very sinister, atmosphere. There are some terrific performances from the three main players - I still maintain that these audiobooks are full-cast plays, just with a small, intimate cast.
It's always wonderful to hear from David Selby, and this is a nice (possible) end to his WWII trilogy, each one enhanced by a Doctor Who name. It also seems to promise further immortal travels with Quentin's new partner in crime, Sally Green, nicely played in clipped fashion by Fay Masterson. Terry Molloy plays Moloch beautifully and yes, there are parallels with his other alter-ego from the Who world.
All in all, this is another winner from the DS range. One note though - the Brits seem to be taking over this American-based series. It's great that audio can open up the appeal of DS on a worldwide canvas, but it is gratifying that the next release features more American voices ... even if one of them is played by a Brit!
