By Victor HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
First released in 2010, this is the second 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. Following the events of the opening episode (Relics of Time) the Doctor and Mrs Wibbsey are on a quest across time, following clues left by their mysterious adversary as they try to track down some missing parts from the TARDIS.

Here their quest takes them to 19th Century Paris, where Toulouse Lautrec appears to be caught up in some very shady shenanigans as his muses are disappearing. What follows is a reasonably entertaining tale as the dynamic duo track the mystery to it’s dark heart and uncover some grisly truths. It’s an ok adventure, one that is open ended ready for the next episode so cannot really be listened to in isolation from the rest of the series. There are some good gothic set pieces that are well realised, so in all 4 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mrs Wibbsey in Paris at the Moulin Rouge! 8 Aug 2011
By Keen Reader TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is the second part of the Demon Quest series of adventures, with Tom Baker reprising his role as the Fourth Doctor; and he's in fine form. You can hear his hat and scarf, really. Mrs Wibbsey is her usual charming self, as she and the Doctor head off from ancient Briton to Paris, France in the late nineteenth century where the clues seem to lead them to Toulouse-Lautrec, the great Post-Impressionist painter. Cue seedy bars, bohemians drinking absinthe, missing callgirls and artist's models, and Monsieur Lautrec who doesn't seem to be his usual self.

Somewhat unusually, much of this story is narrated by Mrs Wibbsey - who comes across as somewhat less crusty and unapproachable as a result, which is good.

Can the Doctor and Mrs Wibbsey find out what is going on? And what does it have to do with the mysterious clues that Mrs Wibbsey got when she inadvertently sold part of the Doctor's Tardis console in part one of this series? Why would the poster have the Doctor's face on it? Why did the previous episode's mosaic have the Doctor's face on it? Who is leaving these clues, and why? And where does Mike Yates fit into the future part of the puzzle? The Doctor does not like people luring him ... so watch out as he dashes madly about Paris chasing for clues with Mrs Wibbsey in tow. Some questions are answered (in part), but more are left for us to chase.

Great stuff, wonderfully narrated by Tom Baker and Susan Jameson with great characters in the story, including the historical Toulouse-Lautrec. Onto the next part of the adventure!

5.0 out of 5 stars Things take a turn! 12 July 2011
By R. Wood TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
The first volume of Paul Magrs' Demon Quest audio series was an enjoyable romp for Doctor Who fans. Tom Baker was back again as the Legendary Time Lord, with Susan Jameson in tow as companion Mrs Wibbsey, the Doctor's Housekeeper. After Mrs Wibbsey exchanged crucial components of the TARDIS for four mysterious, historical artefacts (all featuring a likeness of the Doctor), the time travellers must travel back and forth throughout Earth's history to learn the significance of the items, reclaim the TARDIS components, and unravel the identity and motives of the being who has put them on this chase.

Upon returning from Ancient Britain, The Doctor and Wibbsey's mission has now brought them to Paris in 1894, where the Doctor is surprised to discover himself in a painting almost identical to the famous poster for real-life comedian/cabaret singer Aristide Bruant. Painted by the exact-same artist, Toulouse-Lautrec! But while the Doctor tries to solve the mystery, a more sinister one is plaguing Paris. People are disappearing and Lautrec is being notoriously suspected. But as the truth slowly starts to unravel, what consequences will this spell for the Fourth Doctor and his companion?

The first part of Demon Quest - The Relics of Times - was an entertaining start that established the premise of Paul Magrs' arc, but there was some content in it that felt lacklustre, and you were left thinking that the stakes weren't as serious as implied. And instead of `hungering' to check out the next instalment, I felt merely `intrigued'.

The Demon of Paris changes the mood altogether. Things take a more darker tone here, and the haunting, eerie music and sound effects reflect this perfectly. Magrs deserves props for the direction he takes his story in.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Demon of Paris 9 Jan 2011
By R. Thomas VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The second story in the linked series of Demon Quest is one of the richest in atmosphere. Set in the murky depths of Paris amidst the Moulin Rouge the Doctor and Miss Wibbsey attempt to solve the mystery set up in the first play. Its a good deal darker than the first play, a nice little mystery as some answers are provided and new questions asked. The narration is by Wibbsey as opposed to the Doctor this time and helps provide atmosphere as essentially the narration is from a character who doesn't want to be involved in the events. In short wonderfully dark and it feels like this series in going to be a good one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absinthe friends 16 Oct 2010
Format:Audio CD
The second installment of Paul Magrs' latest Tom Baker-starring original Doctor Who audio doesn't quite match the first part in terms of originality and verve but remains a hugely enjoyable romp, as The Doctor and his acerbic housekeeper find themselves in Nineteenth century Montmartre, on the trail of some missing components from the Doctor's TARDIS. Meeting notorious painter and raconteur Henri Toulouse-Letrec along the way, they have to solve the mystery of Letrec's apparent homicidal spree and how the enigmatic good-time girl Charlotte fits into it. Baker's range of tones - from sonorous to booming - are as delightful as ever, whilst Susan Jameson continues to nail the part of woman out of time; the brilliantly named Mrs Wibbsey.

Baker was one of my favourite Doctors so I was very eager to see how stories I had never heard of would fit into his chronolgy. I was not disappointed. Read more

The kids enjoyed it quite well but I found Tom Baker's voice didn't have enough variety to make the rather dense text so interesting.
