Jenny T Colgan is at it again in set three and her new story much like time reaver is high on visuals ( yes it’s an audio) provided through description and soundscapes this story is exciting and a great tale of calamity.

The cast are great as ever and the fins are cool! Juddoon make a return and we meet a young one which is a laugh!

This is another great one to go in with little knowledge of so please enjoy !!

Finally the range taken a step up in being experimental with this one. Last sets infamy of Zaros was fun an indeed had a nice twist If given away early but No place strides a similar stride yet without treating its listener like a numpty.
Donnas family are back in this one which is like Jackie Tyler in the last set a huge attraction in its self.
But this story is a fairly fresh and innovative one kind of similar I admit to sleep no more but without the being silly and embarrassing.
The humour is glorious I face palmed but in a good way , was ever so cheeky.
Justin and his crew are great as a haunted house renovation team that are huge skeptics. They meet Donna , family and hmmm husband the Doctor ... oh no. The chemistry is awesome as ever as they roll with Justin and team trying to convince him this house not normal. But he constantly battles his believing this to the point of breaking proving for some rather great character moments. Watching his dialogue change from typical interviewer talk to slowly being more real and anxious was definitely great listening.
What’s more I mentioned that it’s a haunted house yes? Well this actually quite creepy and effectively so with lights off. It’s definitely a high atmosphere story!
I pretty much hold out for things like this as one of my favs is Scherzo from the monthlies.

Can not recommend this story enough it’s well and truly my favourite so far for the tenth doctor adventures.
Can’t wait for more !

The acting and soundscapes continue to be of immense quality in this range.

Ahem, the creeping death takes the Doctor and Donna right into the thick of 52 literally in the thick of a smog storm. London at this time was extremely polluted and these smog storms would eventuate into some terrifying man made disasters.
Of course this story has something other than smog present as something lingers in the smog. The doctor wanders off to find someone in distress and Donna wanders into a fellow with a bit of a secret.

This story was overall not bad , I feel like the sword of chevalier it was fun and pretty simple Doctor who nothing mind blowing but still good and that’s what I hope for. The fumifugium are a decent foe if a little typical. Definitely sounds like a name from this era hehe !
Also look out for a nod to a season 4 arc !
Overall this was a classy set and each story worth a relisten !

An interesting read. Not the best but it has its moments where it can be fairly addictive and then some that I get a little tired with or lose interested for a while. I did take time to read this one with a few breaks. But hey I finished it unlike the last third of transit! (I still am disturbed I finished the pit)
All in all it’s good sci fi and has a pretty interesting handling of its aliens , characters and setting description.
The world is well crafted and the characters are reasonably fleshed out.
Ace has changed muchly and resents the Doctor still quite a bit after love and wars events. I do think there will be more tension as I carry on with these novels but it’s good really as it keeps her interesting. Benny is great though I feel that with ace back it’s going to be more common with the sidelining of one or the other. Still I may be wrong. The story definitely does a fair bit of character work so that’s another attraction to the read with ace being quick concerning at points. The doctor actually seems a little more himself in this one but I understand the novels try add some mystery to him.
I’m unsure how I feel overall with this novel as it has some very smart sci fi conception. Interesting villain/s and characters and a vivid and eerie setting yet still sometimes even though quite well written just managed to lose me at times... I’m sure others may think differently of it.

I think for me it’s decent 7. Now onwards to white darkness and is that zombies I see ...
