The Doctor and Peri find themselves in the Museum of Aural Antiquities, where every sound is stored for posterity — from the speeches of Visteen Krane to security service wire taps and interrogation tapes. But they also find an intruder, mysteriously changed recordings, and a dead body.
Before long the Doctor realises that there is more going on than a simple break-in or murder. How can he defeat a creature that is made of pure sound?
The TARDIS takes the Doctor and Turlough to the London of 1702 where a mysterious highwayman roams the streets, a local occultist has made contact with the dead and gentlemen of fashion are disappearing, only to find themselves in a chamber whose walls weep blood…
The time travellers become enmeshed in the hideous plans of Sir Nikolas Valentine, a gambler at the mysterious Diabola Club who always seems to have a winning hand…
Gallifrey is in a state of crisis, facing destruction at the hands of an overwhelming enemy. And the Doctor is involved in three different incarnations – each caught up in a deadly adventure, scattered across time and space. The web of time is threatened – and someone wants the Doctor dead.
The three incarnations of the Doctor must join together to set time back on the right track – but in doing so, will they unleash a still greater threat?
Okay I wasn’t planning on doing another update today and I certainly wasn’t planning on reviewing the latest episode of Doctor Who. In fact the plan was to wait till next week, review the whole thing as a whole, moan about the usually over complicated and generally unsatisfying ending Moffat has given us and call it a day. Maybe with a link to the Christmas trailer.
However at the end of part one we have found out the identity of Missy and seen as how it will temporarily break the internet and certainly derail any review I put up next week I thought it best to get some words out on the matter now. Now there are a few things to mention first:
Number one is, spoiler. Duh
Number two, is that quite a few people have already guessed it which is what I guess we can expect when Moffat tries to do a twist that works rather than getting too far up itself.
And finally number three is spoiler. Duh. Now I know I’ve said it twice but it’s so important I thought it was worth repeating.
