    1. The Eighth Doctor and Mary Shelley find a planet in the grip of fear after a terrorist attack blows up one of their major cities. The strange thing is that skeletons are marching toward the other major city, killing everything in their path.This one was definitely more sci-fi than horror, but it did work. I would have liked to have heard the terror of the skeletons and the ghostly voice been played up more. Also I have to admit I was pleased to have skeletons rather than zombies. I know the diff [...]


    2. Merely okay. The only thing it really had going for it was more development of the relationship between the Doctor and Mary. The story was fairly stock plot stuff.


    3. This was a fun adventure. Reasonably well-written and well-acted. I like McGann's Doctor, and Mary Shelley makes an interesting companion.


    4. The final part of the "Mary Shelley trilogy" sees the Doctor take the eponymous author into our future for the first time, rather than just her own. The action takes place on a human colony world that's supposedly peaceful and prosperous - naturally the Doctor manages to turn up at a time of great conflict anyway. The conflict in question consists largely of armies of walking skeletons attacking a city, again emphasising the Gothic feel of this particular trilogy. Mary, unfortunately, doesn't ge [...]


    5. I didn't have high expectations of this going in - the "army of the walking dead" concept didn't really excite me. I was pleasantly surprised by the first half, which is a tense, fast-paced political thriller. I loved it. (Though I might also have been riding on the high of having just seen "Night of the Doctor", which had me basically bouncing around going, "Eight! Eight!! Eight!!!" for approximately 72 hours after viewing.) I thought the second half let things down a bit. Act 3 has a lot of pl [...]


    6. This story started out with a nice gothic-horror feel to it but ended up just being a standard issue megalomaniac-gone-mad story. It conjures up some decent imagery but the story itself is fairly plain. Also, people in this story are WAY to forthcoming with information and cooperation where the Doctor is concerned. I realize that's kind of a thing in Doctor Who but it is really in your face here. It strikes me as some lazy writing.I should note here, as this is apparently Mary Shelley's swan son [...]


    7. I found I'd bought a copy of this ages ago and forgot to listen to it. It seemed like a perfect story for Halloween, Mary Shelly and an army of skeletons! Unfortunately it didn't really work for me. The setting felt really strange, a fairly advanced science fiction style planet, with politicians, walking dead, flying robots and only two cities. It felt like a total mish-mash and not at all a real civilization. The science fiction seemed to detract from the horror and the monster at the end was j [...]


    8. brings the Eighth Doctor and Mary Shelley to a future planet equipped with complex politics, scientists playing with artificial life, and (until recently) two major cities. Mary Shelley is now far from her own background but comes over more as Leela than Victoria, with of course the obligatory subplot of her falling in love with the Doctor. It's well enough done, I felt stronger than the previous run in this series, and I was glad that the ending seemed to leave the path clear for more Eight/She [...]




    9. And again the Doctor and Mary spend most of their time apart - I would have appreciated some more Doctor-Mary interaction in this trilogy. And I don't mean the sappy kind that's being hinted at.


    10. A rather avergae plot. The best part of the story is the relationship between Mary Shelly and the Doctor. The plot was very predicatble and the villian was not good.


    11. Interesting insight into the Doctor from his travelling companion, Mary Shelly. Subtle sowing of the seeds for Frankenstein in this one, too.
