Mary Tamm, Tom Baker, Chris Benjamin, Trevor Baxter: what could be better I ask you? With John Dorney on fine form with a great script that actually is just as cool as The Talons of Weng Chiang. Jago and Litefoot are back again and with the indomitable Fourth Doctor and lovely Romana 1. This is a Doctor Who fans best wish isn't it? Well, it is for me at any rate. And also theirs the great robot with a terrific voice. So this Whovian cant help but smile broadly as say thanks to Bigfinish and John Dorney for doing all these four characters such brilliant justice! No pun intended. We are back in the Victorian times for a brief but brilliant ride that delivers in every single respect....great stuff BFP. What a great series this has been so far, and a great tribute to the brilliant actress that was Mary Tamm.

Yes, it really is 1978 all over again with this one. Doctor 4 and Romana I are on the trail of some alien tech that Earth people shouldn't get their hands on. They trace it Victorian London, where, or course, the Doctor meets his old friends Jago and Litefoot. The pair, well really just Litefoot, have become interested in the doings of an apparently superhuman vigilante called The Pugilist. Litefoot is also interested in several cadavers of people apparently cooked to death. It all works marvelously well in an entertaining way. The old hands really seem to be enjoying themselves. Romana gets much more to do than be a damsel in dsitress. Mary Tamm is simply great in this one. My only reservation is that the time constraint of two episodes so compresses the story that it all becomes rather obvious who The Pugilist is and how he got his powers. Not much is surprising, though it all is very entertaining.
