DOCTOR WHO The Ghosts of N-Space

by | Read by Jon Pertwee, Elisabeth Sladen, Nicholas Courtney

Audio Theater • 2.75 hrs. • Audio Program • © 2000

This fulsome tale of ghosts, gangsters, synchronicity, and the lust for power, broadcast in six episodes shortly before the lead actor's death, ably represents the state of radio theater. Jon Pertwee, in his last performance as the Doctor, is both gentle and mercurial, and Elizabeth Sladen brings spunk and energy to a role whose characterization moves with the speed of plot. But it's Nicholas Courtney's clipped British baritone that dominates the production in his voicing of the multicultural menagerie of supporting players. While the story's exposition and action are clumsily rendered, the pseudo-adversarial camaraderie between the main characters, familiar to those who loved the program in the midseventies, makes this adventure in nostalgia worthwhile.
