„On a dark frozen planet where no planet should be, in a doomed city with a sky of stone, the last denizens of Earth’s long-lost twin will pay any price to survive, even if the laser scalpels cost them their love and hate and humanity. And in the mat-infested streets, around tea-time, the Doctor and Nyssa unearth a black market in second-hand body parts and run the gauntlet of augmented police and their augmented horses. And just between the tramstop and the picturehouse, their worst suspicions are confirmed: the Cybermen have only just begun, and the Doctor will be, just as he always has been, their saviour.“ (Quelle)
Vielleicht das bisher beste Hörspiel der Main Range, das ich hörte.
„A strange telepathic message prompts the Doctor to travel to the ‚Sector of Forgotten Souls‘, a place where, thousands of years ago, Omega’s ship vanished whilst detonating a star. He’s not the only one journeying towards it. ‚Jolly Chronolidays‘ prides itself on giving its tourists an experience of galactic history that is far better than mere time travel. Its motto is ‚We don’t go into history, we prefer to bring history to you‘. When Omega’s ship suddenly materialises in front of their shuttle, and one of their employees goes insane and tries to destroy his hands…suddenly it’s not just a motto anymore. And Omega – and his madness – is closer than they think.“ (Quelle)
Ganz feine Folge, die zu keiner Sekunde langweilig wird.
„The Clutch is a fleet in constant motion, ships jostling for position, in an endless migration between the stars. For the Galyari, forbidden by an ancient curse from settling on a world ever again, the Clutch is home. But the curse travels with them! The Sandman, a figure of myth and folklore, preys on the young and old alike. He lurks in the shadows and it is death to look upon him. All too soon after the TARDIS arrives, it is evident that the Doctor and the Galyari share a dark history, and Evelyn is shocked to discover that, on the Clutch, it is her friend who is the monster. The Sandman, according to the tales, also goes by the name of the Doctor!“ (Quelle)
Offenbar kommt diese Folge nicht sonderlich gut weg bei den (erregten) Fans. Ein wenig ist das Ding natürlich schon eine One-Trick-Pony-Folge. Ist der Doctor ein Monster? Nun? Na?
„Two years after the incident at the UNIT warehouse a lorry transporting Autons from there to another UNIT facility is hijacked by it’s cargo. Lockwood and another psychic, Natasha, trace the Autons to Sentinel Island.“ (Quelle)
Echte Fans und so. Schauen sich auch durch einen Stream, der alle fünf Minuten von Werbeblöcken durchballert wird. Allerdings: Selbst, was zwischen der Werbung passiert, ist nur schwer aushaltbar.
„The Fifth Doctor and Nyssa discover that even the Daleks have foes that they fear as a paradox threatens to destroy the universe… but are the Daleks the threat or the cure?“ (Quelle)
Iiiiih! Wespen! Aber gut – der Doctor wieder – so weich! „Haben das die Dalek wirklich verdient?“
„The Sixth Doctor and Frobisher become involved in a power struggle in a mysterious castle culminating in a bloodbath. The Doctor and Frobisher finds themselves involved with a society which strictly adheres to a complex and apparently illogical set of customs. Drawing inspiration from the Shakespearean tragedy as well as exploring unpleasant elements of the father/child relationship and infanticide this is one of the darker episodes. This is the first Doctor Who audio story to feature Frobisher.“ (Quelle)
Meine erste Audio-Begegnung mit Frobisher. Und ich finde, er passt gut zu diesem Doctor. Er ist keck genug, um dem Sympathikus Paroli zu bieten. Die Geschichte ist mitunter ziemlich gory BTW.
„The Pinehill Crest Hotel in Kent is host to three very different events: a cross-stitch convention, an experiment in time travel and… the summoning of the scourge. The Doctor, Bernice and Ace find themselves dealing with a dead body that’s come back to life, a mystical symbol that possesses its host, and a threat from another universe that’s ready for every trick the Doctor’s got up his sleeve. This time, has the Doctor gone too far?“ (Quelle)
Da haben sich die Scourge ja ganz schön verschätzt! Der Doctor is not one to be messed with! Überhaupt: Sylvester McCoy ist ein interessanter Doctor – gern habe ich ihn wohl.
