7.5. The Shadow of London
9/10 "Tom Baker, Louise Jameson and Darren Boyd are all on good form, with Ken Bentley’s direction and Jamie Robertson’s sound design helping with some of the misdirection to ensure that as listeners we’re never too far ahead of the participants." Sci Fi Bulletin
The TARDIS materialises in the backstreets of London in the 1940s. Whilst K9 entertains himself in the time ship's library, the Doctor takes Leela for a walk in the streets.
But England’s capital is oddly quiet. There are no cars and very few pedestrians... whilst those people they do meet appear really quite English indeed. And all the while they are monitored by cameras feeding images into a secret control room.
Something strange is happening in the city. Traitors are running wild... and nothing and no-one are quite as they seem.
