Cow bugs, loud noises and a thorough misinterpretation of the concept of race memory.
Right, it’s finally here. Doc and Lucie are pulled into a full-scale war between a race of Wirrn cows (sort of) and what appears to be a grand total of three human soldiers. Add a splash of inconsistent plot logic and 50 minutes of non-stop loud noises, and you have Wirrn Dawn.
We’ve been talking about how much we dislike this audiobook for ages. Then, about a month ago, we sat down and reviewed it, and now – finally – we’re dropping it on your ear balls. I trust the levels of criticism and vitriol are to your liking.
Just for the record, we have reviewed a number of Doctor Who audiobooks, and we loved the heck out of most of them. This one, alas, is not one of our favourites…
On a trivia note, Wirrn have appeared on Doctor Who before. The 1975 serial, ‘The Ark in Space’, starring Tom Baker as The Fourth Doctor, introduced the Wirrn to television audiences. Check out the screenshots here below.
