"Minuet In Hell" is, I suppose, someone's idea of what America, or certain corners of it, is like. Everyone talks like Colonel Claghorn (the inspiration for Foghorn Leghorn) and spouts "halleluia" every third line, an dall the supposedly christian leaders are really satanists. The Doctor is completely out of action for three episodes, doing nothing more than "who am I?" for fifty minutes. The Brigadier is solid and stolid as ever, and Nicholas Courtney maintains his grip on the role.

Ever wonder what it would be like to listen to an audio version of a direct to video b-movie? Now you can! All the key elements are there: stereotypical flat characters, bad dialog, bad acting, bad plot and retarded sexuality. Nicholas Courtney was nice to hear, wish he was placed in a better story.

A different tone....

This story is longer than The SPectre of lanyon moor, but the 43 minute first episode is not boring in the slightest, and neither does the tale peter out as it goes along. In fact, it just keeps on building up menace and momentum until a great end, with the good old Brig again saving the day. Paul Mcgann and Nick Courtney sound great as a team in their scenes together. Nick Courtney always was a favourite of mine. Minuet In Hell is a small tale though, all in all, a few little things put together for a grand finish. But even the rather silly voice of Marcosius doesnt let this story down. Nick Briggs directing is top of the class again. And he gives a good and jolly performances as Gideon Crane. So altogether, a brilliant story.
