A Review by Stuart Gutteridge 10/8/99
In some ways,this is an improvement on K-9`s audio debut The Choice and in other ways it feels something of a letdown. The bad points first, well there is only one really, the pacing of the story. The first half is somewhat slow and when anything happens it isn`t of any real importance. K-9 is put to good use however, being controlled by something unheard (as in The Armageddon Factor), although his tendancy to break down occurs a little too frequently.
Lalla Ward`s Mistress isn`t given any more of a background, although she does work well for the most part. The most interesting characters are the archaeologists who encounter K-9 and The Mistress (during their search for a power source.) By far the best of these is Bryonie Pritchard`s multi-faceted character of Jora.
Again the storyline is simplistic, although not as enjoyable as The Choice. That said however, The Search at least tries to be different, which is no bad thing in itself.
