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!
