5.0 out of 5 stars Welcome To Stockbridge! 12 Aug 2011

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

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

I had my CD cover for this story signed recently by the lovely Sarah Sutton who plays Nyssa. She's absolutely brilliant in this story, and it happens to be one of her favourites which I can understand why that is. She said to me she listened to it in the car and remembered really enjoyed the recording of that story with the cast especially with likes of John Sessions.

It was Christmas 2009 for me, and I was so excited about the new trilogy being released from Big Finish, featuring the Doctor and Nyssa who are my favourite TARDIS duo.

The setting for the trilogy is in a special place 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" really sets 'The Stockbridge Trilogy' off to a good start, and it certainly feels like a 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', and it happens to feature a certain 'doctor' with a stick of celery on his lapel. As you can guess this concerns the Doctor greatly and it isn't before long that the Doctor and Nyssa are whisked off back in time to the 'measly' Middle Ages at Stockbridge Castle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Doctor Goes Medieval 5 Dec 2013

1)Peter Davison & Sarah Sutton truly enjoy this story as they both give wonderful performances here.
2)Alan Barnes delivers a first rate script which is the first part of the Stockbridge trilogy.
3)Return of a old villian comes as a great twist.

Non, It's a joy from beginning to end.

John Sessions appeared in the webcast story Death Comes A Time featuring Sylvester McCoy & Sophie Aldred.
Jo Thomas appears as Simon in The Inbetweeners series & movie.
Susan Brown appeared in Torchwood Children of Earth.

Audio Info.
2 x 4 part adventure, Running time 120 minutes, Trailer, Behind the scenes interviews.

This is a great adventure full of great humourous moments that doesn't distract from the drama.

When the Doctor & Nyssa arrive in Stockbridge in 1899 at the Dragon Inn on Boxing Day as they settle in to watch a play being performed of George slaying the Dragon by the mummers but to the Doctor's astonishment he overhears himself in the dramatic advents that are being played out in the story.

The Doctor & Nyssa return to the middle ages were strangely they have been expected & seemingly the local serfs & peasants know so much about the Tardis & the Doctor being a Timelord.

There is also a matter of a strange mist surrounding Stockbridge Castle & what are the eerie ghostly strange goings on inside it's walls by an apparent Demon?

But as the Doctor & Nyssa will soon find out a old enemy is inside the walls of Stockbridge Castle who will soon make his intentions very clear.

This is the hundred and twenty seventh release from Big Finish in their range of full cast audio adventures starring classic Doctor Whos. It stars Peter Davison as Five and Sarah Sutton as Nyssa. There are four episodes, roughly 25-30 minutes each, complete with cliffhangers and original theme music between each. Two episodes per disc on 2 discs, and a short booklet with some pictures of the cast and production notes. This is the first in a trilogy of three linked adventures centred around the village of Stockbridge. There are some interviews with cast and crew at the end of the first disc. There is a treat for regular listeners in the form of the eighth 10 minute segment of a twelve part adventure called `The Three Companions' on the end of disc 2.

Watching a traditional play in late Victorian Stockbridge, The Doctor and Nyssa are astonished to find that there are references in the centuries old text to a certain Doctor, Lord of Time and Space, and his blue chariot. The next thing they know, they are back in Stockbridge's early history, helping the local Lord (fresh back from the Crusades) to regain his Castle from Demons, aided by various peasants and Roland of Normandy.

It's a hugely enjoyable adventure, mixing traditional Who with a large dash of Monty Python (perhaps, as Davison points out in an interview on the disc, as a homage to his time as King Arthur in Spamalot). Davison and Nyssa get right into the spirit of it, Davison in particular proving quite adept at the comedy. Nyssa gets some character development, and we see her start to work independently of the Doctor, with her own plans to bring about victory. John Sessions quite obviously has a blast in his role as the arrogant Roland in a hilarious performance. It's a breathless run around adventure, with a lot of laughs (and absolutely TERRIBLE puns) along the way. 5 stars for this really enjoyable romp, right up there with the Kingmaker.
