The Curse of The Fugue Review (In Haikus)

The Curse of The Fugue
If you don’t have loads of free time to lounge around listening to Big Finish audios, the Short Trips range are a great place to get your Doctor Who fix; likewise if you’re on a tight budget, at just £2.99 it’s hard to go wrong. This months short trip, The Curse of The Fugue features the Eighth Doctor. The question is; will The Curse of The Fugue be a curse or a blessing?

February 1974 is grimmer than usual for the British. Huddling together by candlelight the nation endures regular power cuts, however the situation is far worse for one old woman. Out of the dark come visitors who know of her terrible burden of wartime secrets. All she fought to save is threatened. Whom can she trust? The troubled ghosts which plague her, a young man who has befriended her, or her new carer Lucie and her strange friend, The Doctor?


Lucie Miller’s back
Travelling with the Doctor
Isn’t that great news?

Sheridan Smith is
Absolutely on top form;
Glad to have her back.

This Short Trip does start
With needed exposition;
Miners aren’t happy.

Power cuts are now
Seemingly more regular;
People getting miffed.

Lucie has a job;
Been two weeks without the Doc,
She wants adventures.

There’s a woman called
Cecile, who is conflicted;
Talking to herself.

Lucie’s exploited
Into giving hints about
What the future holds.

The Doctor seems to
Inspect the mysterious
Woman called Cecile.

It becomes more clear
There’s more to meet the eye with
Our dear friend Cecile.

The Doctor screws up
Meaning Cecile is in a
Bootstrap paradox.

Cecile can see
The ghosts of her former friends
More and more and more.

The Doctor believes
The ghostly apparitions
May be alien.

Our Time Lord becomes
An attempted peacekeeper,
Lucie isn’t pleased.

The conclusion is
Rather good, I must admit;
Lucie’s back with Doc.

Alice Cavendar,
Writer of this story, is
Absolutely great…

She manages to
Give you an emotional
Rollercoaster in…

Just thirty minutes,
You will laugh and you will cry;
It’s a work of art.
