The Whispering Forest

The Whispering Forest – a weird one.

Doctor Who has a grand tradition of stories where ordinary procedures invented by civilized people degenerate over time into blind obedience, ritual and tribalism – The Face of Evil is probably the best and best known such story, though State of Decay too trod the path with a degree of success.

The Whispering Forest is another bold entry in the same vein, but it’s also a kind of scientific-mythological fairy tale, and a battle for what constitutes the truth to boot.

Tony strays into The Whispering Forest and holds tight.
