Read full description of the books Doctor Who: Primeval:Primeval, Prime Evil, Ahhhh, I see what you did there. Cute ;-) I won't launch into a big self-righteous rant about how I don't think things like gods and tangible evil should be in Doctor Who, but I do prefer they keep things on a sci-fi kind of track and I'm glad that this is kept to a minimum. That said, it does seem to work here, much as it did in 'Keeper of Traken' and 'Enlightenment'.
Also, much like those stories, this one feels like a proper 5th Doctor adventure. (I leave it to you to decide if that is a good thing or not.) The music and sound to this one harken back to the old 80's shows and there is a lot of philosphising and the Doctor being annoyingly Lawful Good. And Nyssa manages to get herself controlled by a higher intelligence. Seriously, between the Tegan/Mara stuff and the Turlough/Black Guardian business, were there any 5th Doctor companions that didn't find themselves the pawns of an alien intelligence at some point? Maybe Adric, but that didn't end well, did it?
Also, I have to meantion this because it makes me chuckle when BF does this, they try to show a little skin in this one. I noticed them doing it in 'Minuet in Hell' too. They have a cutie pie companion running around scantily clad or wearing something sexy and every couple of minutes they make a point of reminding you, "Hey! Scantilly clad companion here!" The idea of them trying to sell a little sexy eye candy in an audio adventure is just, I don't know, ironic. And they kinda beat you over the head with it. Bless 'em. It's funny.
It's an enjoyable one.
Read information about the authorLance Parkin is an author who has written professional Doctor Who fiction since the 1990s. He is one of the few authors to write for both the 1963 and 2005 version of the programme — though much of his fiction has actually been based on the 1996 iteration. Indeed, he was notably the first author to write original prose for the Eighth Doctor in The Dying Days. He was also the author chosen to deliver the nominal 35th anniversary story, The Infinity Doctors, and the final volume in the Eighth Doctor Adventures range, The Gallifrey Chronicles. More recently, he has written for the Tenth Doctor in The Eyeless.
He is further notable for his work with Big Finish Productions, where he is arguably most known for writing the Sixth Doctor adventure, Davros.
Outside of Doctor Who, he has written things like Warlords of Utopia and (with Mark Jones) Dark Matter, a guide to the author Philip Pullman.
