Audio Club: The Spectre of Lanyon Moor

Literally just finished listening to it and there is merely some flim flam about the TARDIS being clever and having detected the psionic forces in play, it puts itself on a different ‘plain of existence’ which doesn’t sound anything like HADS which always seems to put it in a new physical location.

Really enjoyed this and all the twists and turns. The Sixth Doctor, Evelyn and the Brigadier are a great team and it’s a real shame we never got any more stories with the three of them.

I was trying to remember who wrote this and checked to see it was Nicholas Pegg. I don’t think he wrote any more audios, which is a shame as he did a good job on this one, but acted in a lot of them and of course went on to become a Dalek operator alongside his partner (and voice of Philip in Spectre) Barnaby Edwards.

Pegg is also a huge Bowie fan, he wrote the excellent book The Complete David Bowie.

This one is hard to review properly. While I like the cast/performances, and the plot is interesting, ultimately it just feels a bit bloated and long. It definitely feels like the 2+ hours that it is. If it was 20-30 minutes shorter, it would be a lot better. That being said, it very much is a comfort listen, even if it is a little forgettable. It gets a sold 3.5/5 from me.

Here is my spoiler free review.
