This is if you will, a “classical” Fourth Doctor and Leela story. They dispense with K9 almost as an aside, which for me is terrific since I find the character disruptive and irritating in the extreme when you are trying to enjoy a good solid adventure with this pairing.
The story itself is standard fare done very well, which is what Doctor Who on television seems to have entirely abandoned in favour of its current PC / SJW agenda. Sad.
The Fourth Doctor sounds his age in some early scenes but Tom Baker’s mellifluous tones are soon back in control. Leela is on top form.
The only slight detriment in this play is that the lines are delivered with a little separation between them making it sound a little like an old fashioned radio play. A bit of sound mixing and overlapping crossfade etc. could have fixed this very minor quibble and made the presentation a touch less artificial.
In terms of conjuring the scene using only sound and words it does a good job. Some scenes in particular form clear as day in the mind’s eye.
If you like classic ie good Doctor Who and in particular crave more 4th Doctor and Leela teamups – get this one.
