Doctor Who Audio Review: A Mirror Of Destruction

The Apocalypse Mirror is a Doctor Who audio presentation from the range known as The Companion Chronicles. Eddie Robson serves as the scriptwriter with Lisa Bowerman in the director’s chair again for Big Finish Productions. Frazer Hines and Wendy Padbury are reunited as Jamie and Zoe as they present this story from what would have been the era of the Second Doctor, as played by the late Patrick Troughton.

The Doctor and his two friends arrive in a city known as Tromesis and found that some calamity has stricken it. As they explore the ruins, they keep seeing ghostly images of the city before the disaster. They also learn that people have vanished and giant metal birds are on the attack.

Hines, as usual, does well with playing Jamie McCrimmon and his impression of the Second Doctor. Padbury does well in this one. The story is pretty good. It’s an enjoyable yet unremarkable episode. It’s just a nice little addition that features a favorite early Doctor.
