Out of all of the previous television Doctors who are now reprising their roles on audio, I have always been least impressed by Peter Davison's portrayal. His feyness, youthful exuberance, and breathless delivery, have always been better suited to a visual medium in my opinion, and his companions have tended to be either bolshy and pointless (Tegan), or nasal and pointless (Peri). However, this may well be The Fifth Doctor's finest hour, as Alan Barnes' script is superb - crackling with wit, energy, and verve, and wringing huge amounts of drama out of a pretty simple premise - this after all is what good Doctor Who does best.

The Doctor's bewilderement and foreboding are brought out immediately, when landing in the Middle Ages he and his companion Nyssa appear to have been expected. How do the local serfs and peasants know so much about the Time Lord, his TARDIS, and his apparel? What is the eerie mist that is blighting the land? And what are the so-called 'demons' who are possessing Stockbridge castle and subsuming the wills of any humans who come into their path..? An old enemy of The Doctor's is on the prowl again, and it will take all of the Time Lords' determination and ingenuity to emerge triumphant once again...

What I liked most about this story was the irreverent humour - many of the asides, muttered comments from the extras, and dialogue, bring to mind episodes of Monty Python and Blackadder.

Well...what can I say about 'Castle of Fear'?

I really enjoyed this story and found it very amusing. Of course, I had to listen to this a number of times in order to get my head around some of the terminology that was used in the Middle Ages.

This is a four-part story by Alan Barnes. It is the first story of 'The Stockbridge Trilogy' and stars Peter Davison as the Doctor and Sarah Sutton as Nyssa. I had all three stories for Christmas in 2009. I was excited about this new trilogy featuring the Doctor and Nyssa who are my favourite TARDIS team.

I've had the CD cover of 'Castle of Fear' signed by the lovely Sarah Sutton at a London convention in 2011. She's absolutely brilliant and this happens to be one of her favourites. Sarah told me that she listened to this story in the car and that she enjoyed working with the cast including John Sessions.

The setting of the trilogy is in a special place in 'Doctor Who' from comic book land called Stockbridge. I've never read any of the Fifth Doctor comic book adventures, but that didn't matter to me as this was a trilogy that featured the Doctor and Nyssa and that was enough for me to enjoy.

'Castle of Fear' sets 'The Stockbridge Trilogy' off to a good start and it certainly feels like a special Christmas offering. The Doctor and Nyssa attend a Boxing Day gathering at the Green Dragon Inn in 1899. They watch a mummer's play being performed about St. George and the fiery Dragon.

The mummer's play happens to feature a certain 'doctor' in a white coat with a stick of celery on his lapel. As you can guess, this concerns the Doctor greatly and it isn't before long that he and Nyssa are whisked off back in time to the 'measly' Middle Ages at Stockbridge Castle to solve the mystery.

This is the first in a trilogy known as the ‘Stockbridge’ trilogy, which picks up on the reference to Stockbridge used in a number of Doctor Who graphic novels, a very clever idea and one which works tremendously well. This is the 127th release in the Main Range by Big Finish, and features the Fifth Doctor travelling with Nyssa.

In this story, the Doctor and Nyssa have visited Stockbridge in 1889 to see the Stockbridge mummers’ play, a Christmas tradition which the Doctor has promised to Nyssa. However, there are a number of uncomfortably familiar references in the play, and the Doctor and Nyssa decide that they had better go and investigate further. In Stockbridge in 1199, Hubert, the Earl of Mummerset has returned from the Crusades, and wants to take possession of Stockbridge Castle. Only there appear to be demons inhabitating the castle, and Hubert’s not quite brave enough to take them on single-handed.

I thoroughly enjoyed this story, both as a stand-alone story, and as the first of the Stockbridge trilogy. It is a really enjoyable Fifth Doctor story, where the Doctor is written perfectly; a good blend of sarcasm and dark muttering peppers his conversation, whether talking to others or, quite often to himself, and the relationship between him and Nyssa is really wonderfully worked into the story, with Nyssa being a strongly independent character with quite forceful opinions.

There is a lot of humour in this story, but it is never over the top, and never out of place. While it does, at times, have a slight feeling of Blackadder, or Maid Marian and her Merry Men, or even Monty Python, it is all done so delightfully charmingly that you can’t help but smile, or laugh at the references, and the wit throughout.
