Format: Audio CD
Set in Ireland during the 10th century (a period when Kells Abbey was plundered by Vikings regularly) this story covers how the book got stolen and recovered a few months later, and naturally the Doctor is involved.

This is the first story recorded for Tamsin Drew (her third in the chronology) and mid way through you are struck by the high quality Big Finish production, acting and also still unsure of how well the Doctor / Tamsin relationship will develop. Meanwhile there is the mystery of who plucked the TARDIS from the vortex!

Suddenly the plot takes off and with the Doctor you get led down a series of events that totally misleads until the final revelation of who the villain is.

At this point the story is hovering at four stars, then after the closing of the story from the Doctor's pov comes a revelation that sets the whole story arc for this series alight - sadly I can't mention what it is without spoiling the whole, but take it on trust this is brilliant!

Format: Audio CD
Latest Doctor who audio play to feature Paul McGann as the eighth Doctor, with Niky Wardley as his companion Tamsin.

This follows on from earlier eighth doctor plays but stands mostly on it's own. Although if you don't know your doctor who continuity from tv and haven't been following this range regularly a couple of things may go over your head.

It runs for two episodes of roughly thirty minutes each and is complete on one disc. There's a trailer for the next in the series at the start of the disc and roughly twelve minutes worth of interviews with cast and crew at the end.

The story sees the TARDIS forced to land in Ireland in 1006 near the Abbey of Kells. Where the Doctor and Tamsin are thrown straight into a real bit of history. An illuminated version of the gospels is about to be stolen. And nobody knows who by. But the doctor has bigger concerns. Because something pulled the TARDIS out of the vortex. Who would have the technology to do that in this time period?

Surprising answers and big shocks await.

This one works well right from the start because the audience are as much in the dark about the setting as the Doctor and Tamsin initially are and listening to them slowly discover things becomes very entertaining. Tamsin is better written here than she was in the previous story and she comes over very well, being very much a modern person thrust into strange worlds without any of the mod cons we take for granted and having to use her wits on occasion.

The rest of the cast are also very good, every supporting character being very believable and convincing as the kind of person you'd find in this time period.
