Doctor Who: The Silver Turk
I just started listening to this 8th Doctor adventure this morning. The first thing that startled me a little was that the theme tune has changed. I’m not quite sure what I think of it so far. My guess is that they wanted to draw a line between this and the Charley Pollard stories. That’s fine. Perhaps I’ll get used to it. It’s obviously the original actual theme but a bit different, an unusual take on the classic theme.
The next thing is the choice of new companion. That was a shock. I knew they’d plug in a new companion but I didn’t expect it to be a real person from history! Mary Shelley is an odd choice I think, but part way through the first CD I think it’s working out ok. I’ll have to see what my view is when I’ve listened to the whole thing.
