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 !
