This story is so bad I literally don't know how bad it is.
I'd heard very, very bad things about this story before giving it a listen. Somehow it found itself in my library, though, so someone must have recommended it to me at one point or another as some kind of cruel joke.
Ultimately, though, I didn't find it to be that bad—it wound up being so profoundly boring, in fact, that I could scarcely follow the story. I'm told that the Doctor got his head chopped off and a companion was sexually assaulted, and... okay, maybe one or both of those things happened—but I didn't notice at all! Every single line of dialog just bored me to tears, and I spent most of my time while listening (at around 3am) consoling my very distraught 70lbs golden retriver—she had a very small fart and found the experience very frightening.
The most memorable part of the story, and that's really not saying much, was the loosely constructed premise—and even that is about as uninspired as they come. Corporate dystopia? Yeesh.
Overall: a confusing mess. Easily the worst audio drama I've listened to thus far (and at this point I'd estimate that I've listened to over 200, easily). I've listened to "bad" dramas before ('The Barbarians and the Samurai' comes to mind) but they've always had -some- redeeming qualities. I could at least listen to them without desperately wishing I was doing something, anything else the entire time. Not so with Nekromanteia.
In conclusion: the only words I can use to describe this experience are insipid, vapid, and imminently forgettable. Everything went in one ear and out the other.
