Doctor Who: Dark Eyes Win: What the Judges Said

Doctor Who: Dark Eyes Win: What the Judges Said

29 January 2014

We're still excited about winning the BBC Audio Drama award for Best Online or Non-Broadcast Drama for Doctor Who - Dark Eyes: The Great War on Sunday night, so we wanted to share the thoughts of the category's judges, Viv Gardner and Sofie Mason. Read on...

Judged by Viv Gardner and Sofie Mason

WINNER: DOCTOR WHO – DARK EYES: THE GREAT WAR

People’s history, fantasy and high drama. The winning entry was outstanding in every respect:  a complex, gripping narrative made visible through three-dimensional characters in believable relationships, some fine acting, and a superbly orchestrated soundscape which never overdoes the atmospherics or signposting of changes in time and place. Above all, it manages its historical and fantastical elements seamlessly and, for a brief period, time is suspended for the listener.

Doctor Who: Dark Eyes is available to order, with Dark Eyes 2, 3 and 4 also available for pre-order.
