Terror of the Sontarans is interesting, with a whole we're not who we are riff but with an interestingly varied set of characters. Usually if it's called 'terror of' they just mean Sontarans are scary, but this one is more 'what actually scares sontarans'.
it's very pretty horror.
... audio, but the descriptions are proper eerie.
I like it plenty, but it feels like it has far less of Mel and the Doctor than usual.
... actually that might be why I like it.
but I'm typing to try and stay focused - vaguely regretting splitting my concentration, because it's being interesting - but this way I stay awake.
and part three of four just finished.
I'm really not very good at listening to audios when I've got nothing else to do.
so I'm not really concentrating as i would like
and I liked this story better when it was creepy spooky. this part is more fighty.
the ending wasn't my favourite. but it was okay. ish.
... in retrospect I like the ending of the previous one better. more making friends.
it was a spooky interesting story that built up to a standardised ending that was a solution the sontarans could and did come up with without the doctor. not quite the right shape.
but good bits before then.
