The Doctor and Rose arrive at a luxurious resort only to find many chefs have disappeared without explanation and that many guests are thrown into uncontrollable feeding frenzies.

Not enough can be said about Jacob Dudman's uncanny performance at the Tenth Doctor. In addition to that, Dudman does great playing a variety of characters. He's an actor who when pared with one other actor can create a feeling of practically a full cast story. Speaking of the other actor, Arinzé Kene is a delight as the very sympathetic chef Orentino.

The story itself has a light feel to it throughout most of it, but becomes a bit of a dark comedy as the evil plot is revealed and the Doctor's old enemy is revealed. Do yourself a favor, don't listen to this on a full stomach or right before meal. Still, it's an enjoyable story if you listen to it at the right time.

The Taste of Death is a strong first outing for Jacob Dudman as the narrator and voice of the Tenth Doctor for the Tenth Doctor Chronicles. While his impression has some flaws in it, Dudman makes up for his shortcomings quite a bit with a fantastic energy to his performance, that really gives it more of an authentic, David Tennant feel. He’s joined by the excellent Arinzé Kene as Orentino, as he gives a memorable guest performance. Helen Goldwyn takes on both writing and directing duties for the first story of the set, crafting an enjoyable, rompy adventure for the Tenth Doctor and his friends, both old and new. Her story benefits from an enjoyable plot, but also from an energy, both in the performances and the writing, that really makes it feel like a proper Tenth Doctor story, with the fantastic Big Finish flair. It’s a strong start for a somewhat controversial set of stories, giving a strong look at the man tasked with leading the Chronicles range now, while telling a charming, rompy story to boot.
