8.03. The Turn of the Screw
⅘ "Robson provides an all action story set in Puerto Rico and it is tremendous fun, if a touch grittier than we might usually expect… Yee Jee Tso give a spirited performance in the first person… He handles the action scenes ably, and colourfully brings the other characters to life." Cultbox
"Last year, the Short Trips went from strength to strength. Judging by this one, the new year will go even further! Brilliant script full of action and humour, expert directing, great delivery, stunning sound work" Blogtor Who
"Yee Jee Tso barrels the story along with a likeable, knowing tone that makes us want to hear more from Sato in future audios… pacey, cheeky, joyful Doctor Who sprinkled with peril that grows and grows to a gulping pinnace. It’s great to break Charlie out of the Vault" Massmovement
9/10 "The story itself, by Eddie Robson; is perfect" Indie Mac User
Doctor Who: Short Trips Monthly is a series of new short stories read by an original cast member.
Release #39 is an Eighth Doctor and Warrant Officer Charlie Sato story
Charlie Sato has been chasing a bit of alien junk from England to Puerto Rico. He's finally got his hands on it - but now he's got to get it safely off the island. The aliens he stole it from want it back, and someone else has hired a group of thugs to get hold of it. And then there's the original owner - he might come looking too.
All this for a screwdriver? Someone, somewhere must want to unscrew some pretty important screws.
