Doctor Who: The Last Post - What the Critics Said

22 April 2013

Last year saw the release of Doctor Who Companion Chronicle The Last Post, the final story to star Caroline John as Liz Shaw, the Third Doctor's first companion. An exemplary tale which examined the character's season on the show, it was met with much approval from the critics. Read on for more...

Here are some of the reviews for Doctor Who - The Companion Chronicles: The Last Post.

'It feels very much like Goss has managed to take the best of Liz Shaw and write a personal and delicate love letter to the character. This is an essential purchase for fans of the Pertwee era or, as Season 7 should be remembered, the Liz Shaw era.' - Kasterborous

'It's a good story on its own and it's a good, if somewhat poignant, tribute to a great actress, a great character and an all-round decent person in the form of Caroline John.' - What Culture

'It's a terrific tale, with James Goss capturing Liz's personality and creating a family for her that goes a long way to explaining how she is.' - Sci-Fi Bulletin

'The play, as I've come to expect from Liz Shaw tales, is a rip-roaring affair, a devilishly well thought out and plotted conspiracy drama involving multiple murder, secret government committees and incredible technology.' - Mass Movement
