'Cricket boy' finds himself at the centre of the inciting incident with his companion from Traken, Nyssa (Sarah Sutton). The TARDIS crash lands on Bob Dovie's house in 1963 England. Bob Dovie seems a little forgetful and mistakes the time travellers for Police who are investigating his missing wife and kids. An innocent visit takes a sinister turn when the Doctor and Nyssa find miniaturised family members in a doll house. This is where the fifth Doctor's greatest strengths—compassion and sensitivity—are also his biggest vulnerabilities which the Master exploits.
'The Light at the End' should appease Whovians who are in need of a multi-Doc fix. A huge cast can often be risky however Nicholas Briggs has done a superb job to ensure everyone gets a fair share of the action and are true to their characters.
The last few minutes of the audio drama are especially amusing and it was pleasant to experience a serious story that was punctuated with humorous dialogue and a clever plot. Whovians should be pleased.
Doctor Who 'The Light at the End' (Standard Edition) is now available on CD (AUS $25.13) and as a digital download (AUS $19.99).
