Book Description

6 Dec 2010 Doctor Who: Demon Quest (Book 5)
Tom Baker reprises the role of the Fourth Doctor in this thrilling climax of five brand new adventures, with Richard Franklin as Mike Yates and Susan Jameson as Mrs Wibbsey. The TARDIS arrives on Sepulchre, and the Doctor and Mike find themselves in an old, dark house. Who awaits the two men there? What plans have been laid for their arrival? They soon discover from their host - and his housekeeper - that this is the culmination of a terrible, grand plan - one with the Doctor at its very centre. One from which he may never escape...As the Atlas of All Time unfolds, the odds seem stacked against the three old friends. Which of them will fall before the night is out? With Tom Baker as the Doctor, Richard Franklin as Mike Yates, Susan Jameson as Mrs Wibbsey, Nigel Anthony as the Host and Carole Boyd as the Old Friend, "Sepulchre" is the last of five linked stories written by the acclaimed Paul Magrs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Home? To Nest Cottage? 10 Oct 2011
By Keen Reader TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is the fifth and final part of this story; and, while not an earth-shattering adventure full of revelations, this is a satisfying ending to the buildup of the previous episodes in the story.

The Doctor, Mike Yates and Mrs Wibbsey are together again as they face their tormentor - for the final time? Tom Baker, Richard Franklin and Susan Jameson are in top form yet again in their characters, and the storyline leaves the listener feeling quite satisfied about the outcome of the story, and how we got there. As is always the way with the Doctor, nothing is ever quite as it seems.

We are left with the definite impression that all is not totally quiet on Christmas Eve at Nest Cottage by the end of the story; and that's a good thing for us, because it means that hopefully there are more stories on the way. And long may they continue.

By Victor HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER

First released in 2010, this is the fifth part of a five part adventure for the Fourth Doctor released on audio. It is a single hour long episode on a single disc, with some well realised artwork on the inlay. Having recovered all the missing parts of the TARDIS, Mrs Wibbsey has been kidnapped by the Demon and The Doctor and Mike have to travel to the mysterious Sepulchre to rescue her and take part in the final showdown.

This has been a disappointing series, you could probably listen to episodes one and five and get the story without missing anything important (and more importantly missing the painfully bad fourth episode). Sadly this final episode continues to fall a little flat as all the various plot strands are brought together and resolved. The tale is largely told by Richard Franklin as Mike Yates, once again largely sidelining the Doctor. When Tom does put in an appearance, his voice sounds a little ragged, lacking in the richness we have come to expect. It’s a dull lifeless thing, tying up the loose ends but not really doing much. I hope the next season of stories (The Serpent Crest) picks up a bit. It’s a pity, when Paul Magrs is on form (The Boy That Time Forgot for instance) he scales some real peaks. But this series has been pretty poor and badly realised. Not even my nostalgia at hearing ‘my’ Doctor’s voice again can lift it. 3 stars for this final episode.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not perfect, but still a fantastic finale! 30 Nov 2011
By R. Wood TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Four audiobooks. Four different time periods. Four different artefacts and mysteries to investigate. It's been an entertaining ride with the Fourth Doctor (Tom Baker) in Paul Magrs' Demon Quest. And now, the audio arc finally comes to a climax in Sepulchre.

Events took a major twist in the final moments of Starfall (part 4), where the Doctor's housekeeper Mrs Wibbsey was abducted by the Demon, a mysterious creature who has been assuming various guises throughout history, baiting the Time Lord with missing components to his TARDIS, and historical artefacts featuring his likeness.

But the question throughout has always been..."WHY?"

Why has the Demon gone to all this trouble to lure the Doctor? Why has he tried relentlessly to capture him? Just WHAT are his motives? And who IS he?! Rest assured, these questions are finally answered in Sepulchre. And the answers are most satisfactory indeed. The machinations of Demon Quest run deeper than listeners have been led to believe, which (again) speaks volumes of Magrs' ability to construct a story of this overall length and magnitude.

Sepulchre is certainly a different breed of chapter from other parts of Demon Quest. Obviously, previous instalments were executed in a much-more adventure-based format, so the final part had to be designed to tie up loose ends. But Sepulchre does provide more than just satisfying resolution. The revisiting of certain elements from Hornet's Nest is shocking and creative, and the dark music and tense sound effects will have you on the edge of the seat.

But I do have some issues with this final part. First, The Doctor and Mike Yates' quest to find Mrs Wibbsey is pretty much over right at the start, deflating Starfall's ending in no time at all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Stuff! 16 July 2013

Baker was one of my favourite Doctor Who's. The scriptwriters obviously knew the persona well. The presence of other members of the gang really helped.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprising 13 Jan 2013
By jrob
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Paul Magrs writes a very good story to finish off the Demon Quest storyline. You don't find out who the protaganists are until this final episode and you'll be surprised. Tom Baker sounds exactly like he did in the seventies and Richard Franklin's Captain Yates narrates with just the right level of gravitas.
