The Doc is sentenced to death for a parking violation and Lucie is temporarily replaced by a nimbler model in this sadly forgettable audiobook.
This Doctor Who audiobook takes place in London, sort of, in several different periods in time, kinda, all at once. Confused? You ought to be.
After appearing in court for a traffic violation, The Doctor is somehow transported back in time to the 17th century where he is immediately sentenced to death. Meanwhile, Lucie is brought back to WW1-era London, where instead of dodging Zeppelins (which would have been pretty cool), she does her best to avoid being killed by a blind serial killer allegedly prowling the streets during blackouts. More confused? Don’t worry; that’s perfectly normal.
So now, while she stumbles around the place looking for the Doctor on her own, he is united with charming, daring, tightrope-walker-turned-thief and ever-so-slightly-too-common-to-be-considered-a-femme-fatale, Spring-Heeled Sophie, played by Clare Buckfield of Horror of Glam Rock fame. Anyway, yade-yade-yade, they all make the inevitable journey to be reunited and figure out what the heck is going on.
Let’s not say any more now. There’s a reason this is our shortest Audiobook review so far…
