'The Dreamtime is living Time. The Dreaming is living myth.'

A city travels the stars, inhabited by stone ghosts. At its heart, an ancient remembrance of Earth. Mythical creatures stalk the streets and alien visitors have come in search of trade. But there is nothing to trade. Only fear. And death. And the stone ghosts.

For Hex's first destination in the TARDIS, it's about t

My least favorite of the Seventh Doctor audio adventures (so far), coincidentally (or not), written by the same man who wrote my least favorite Six & Evelyn adventure: Doctor Who: The Sandman.

I really have no idea what happened in this story. Ayers Rock and a big chunk of Australia itself is floating through space because . . . something. And everyone's turning into stone because of bunyips or something. And if there's an antagonist, it's the aboriginal dream state itself. Or something. I r

Originally posted here at Anime Radius.

Companions on Doctor Who, when it comes to their first outing in the TARDIS, never get an easy ride: Tegan is forced to carry a post-regenerated Doctor around a strange planet; Charley Pollard faced down Cybermen while Ace smashed the hell out of Daleks with a baseball bat. Seems only fair that everyone’s favorite male nurse from the near future, Thomas Hector Schofield, should get the same treatment. With a giant chunk of Australia floating through space o

Forgot to review this one which is why the read date is earlier than the started to read date.

Interesting take on the dreamtime concept, and naturally Hex's first trip in the TARDIS throws him into the thick of what it's like to travel with the Doctor.

You know you're in trouble when the characters themselves are asking "What's going on?" and the only responses are utterly nonsensical versions of "It's difficult to explain."

After 3 episodes, I stopped asking myself what was going on because I couldn't be bothered to care anymore.

You know what? It's never explained. If Doctor Who is going to go all mythological, at least make a good faith attempt to rationalize it scientifically. Have that much respect for the source material.

Dreamtime is the first trip in the Tardis for the Seventh Doctor's new companion Hex: some splendid audio-scapes conveying the double weirdness of the landscape - Uluru is bizarre enough in the first place, but to find it on an atmospheric asteroid is extra value. I'm not sure if the plot really made a lot of sense but I enjoyed the ride.

The TARDIS brings the Seventh Doctor, Ace and new companion Hex to a seemingly dead city floating among the stars, populated by statues that may once have been people. Most startling of all on the planetoid is the familiar sight of Uluru — Ayers Rock — the heart of the Dreamtime.

The Doctor, Hex and Ace try to help a planet to live a life not in fear. Dreaming is turning people's dreams into nightmares. Can normalcy be brought back?
