  • The darkest ones I've seen/listened to are probably the 'Sound of Drums' 3-parter, "Pyramids of Mars", and "Scherzo" (Big Finish audio story). How about you?

    • The darkest one is probably Dark Water. Turn Left and Mindwarp are also contenders.

    • Ah, yes, Dark Water, Turn Left, and Mindwarp. I actually forgot about those for a second. "Blood Heat" (Virgin New Adventures novel), is very dark, but, then again, so are most NAs. "The Holy Terror" (Big Finish audio story) gets dark by the end, but I would say the first two parts are so light they automatically exclude it. Then again, the story does get darker, ending with everyone but the Doctor and Frobisher dead.

    • Speaking of novels, I've just remembered the Tenth Doctor novel Prisoner of the Daleks. Check that one out if you get the chance.

      Funny you should say that. I'm actually on chapter 8 of that book right now and it's already horrifying.

    • Huh. Weird coincedence. It's a shame we haven't had many Dalek stories where the Daleks are as, well, Dalek as they are in that novel. *Rewatches the Dalek scene in ‚ÄčThe Pilot and sighs*.

    • Eh... while I agree that "Utopia"/"The Sound of Drums"/"Last of the Time Lords" is very dark, the saccharine 'power of love' ending prevents it from being one of the darkEST. However, it is a good contender if you leave aside the ending. It's the exact same case with "Shadow of the Scourge" (audio story), which is disturbing to no end (featuring such delightful moments as the Doctor painfully and graphically turning into one of the monsters while begging Ace for help, the Doctor, under the influence of the Scourge, talking about how worthless he is, and one guy being forced to choke himself to death slowly and painfully - in a way that, if not for the Scourge's influence, the human body would not usually allow -as the Scourge taunt him about how much he sucks), but it ends with a group of people basically clapping their hands and wishing the Scourge away. Normally, I would hate an ending like this, but in a story so otherwise grim and horrific, it feels earned. It's also not quite so bad as you might think, as the Scourge DO put up quite a fight, but are no match in the end for the power of love.

    • I'd say Zagreus maybe or The Chimes Of Midnight but I've only just started getting into the audio dramas, and I haven't listened to many yet. I dunno, it just depends on perspective I guess.
