Never been such a well done homage....

One recalls the Jon Pertwee era so well: the planetary rights stories, the miners strikes, the moral fibres of stories like The Silurians, and to get a short story that encompasses the best of all the best Jon Pertwee story themes is brilliant. And the Many Deaths of Jo Grant is a brilliant tale, and in my book, one of the very finest companion pieces to date.

Katy Manning does her usual brilliant job of bringing the whole thing to life, and here we get the brilliant cliffhangers, leading up to a surprising and different kind of ending. This would have fitted in brilliantly in the old series, and Im so glad to hear it now. We have such good bits thrown in all along the way in this very strong tale. Anyone who likes the plantetary invasion, the alien despot, the wacko spaceship and robots, or mind science will then love this one pieces. I certainly do. A great story, Cavan and Mark have surpassed themselves this time.

Katy Manning narrates this story of Jo Grant undergoing multiple scenarios in which she sacrifices herself for The Doctor's sake. There is a certain predictability about the reason for this. Manning does a pretty good imitation Jon Pertwee, though not such a good imitation Nicholas Courtney. This one is entertaining.
