Sixth Doctor Audio: Whispers of Terror

whispers

Writer: Justin Richards

Director: Gary Russell

Producer: Gary Russell & Jason Haigh-Ellery

Executive Producer: Stephen Cole

Running Time: 1 hr, 31 minutes (note: Download and Spotify Only. No longer available on CD)

Companion: Peri (Nicola Bryant)

Summary: The Doctor and Peri arrive in the Museum of Aural Antiquities, which has stored every sound that ever existed.  They discover a dead body and a monster made of pure sound.

Review: This is a story that feels as though it could only work as an audio drama.  It’s a great concept, but the execution just doesn’t gel.  Peri acts too much like the version the show gave us, which can be annoying. There are some positives though. Colin Baker acts as if he never left the role. The sound is excellent, which is great considering the kind of enemy the Doctor is facing. Overall, this is a by-the-numbers story, but not much above average.

Overall Review: 6/10
