The Doctor and Leela land the Tardis; they're not sure where or when, but the Doctor sees it as an opportunity to continue Leela's education. Unfortunately, when he finds out where and when they are, it might have been better not to be there at all - for they are in the path of the Iceni, led by Boudicca, bent on revenge against the Romans who took her dead husband's kingdom, flogged her and ruined her daughters. The Doctor, knowing all too well what will happen after Boudicca and her allies reach Camulodunum, and aware that he cannot become involved in changing what is historical fact, tries to get Leela to leave with him. But Leela's warrior instincts are roused, and she sees the noble role for herself as assisting Boudicca against the invaders - after all, isn't that what the Doctor always tries to do?

So in this story we have the rather unusual situation of the Doctor and his `companion' acting against each other - both for very good reasons, but both cannot be satisfied by the outcome. And for those of us who know what happened to Boudicca, even before the Doctor brought it up, I for one would not have wanted to be present when Camulodunum was attacked.

It's a pity that this is another of the stories that is only two episodes, and one cd long - I think the four episode, two cd stories, as a norm, allow for the full blossoming and development of the story, and the characters. An entertaining story, with Louise Jameson and Tom Baker in top form; it's interesting to hear Boudicca's story as she might have told it, and this is a great addition to the Fourth Doctor stories - highly recommended.

Latest Doctor who audio play to feature Tom Baker as the Doctor and Louise Jameson as his companion Leela. This is the third in a series of them, but it pretty much stands on it's own. Thus casual listeners should be able to get into it easily without having heard the preceding ones.

It's a complete story and it runs for two episodes of roughly thirty minutes each, and these are on a single cd.

This does continue the loose ongoing theme of this run, in that the Doctor is trying to educate Leela. And on this occasion, he's brought her to ancient Britain.

Only to find that they've landed in the middle of Boudica's rebellion against the Romans.

The Doctor knows how history turns out. Leela doesn't. And when falls under the sway of Boudica, the Doctor has some difficult decisios to make...

This is one of those select breed of stories that the show did in it's early days. A pure historical. The TARDIS is the only science fictional element in it. The mandate of those old stories was to educate and entertain. And it certainly manages the former, with some excellent research being put to very good use. You may well learn a few things about this legendary period of history as a result.

It offers the listener moral food for thought as well, making you consider whether certain actions from certain characters are justified or not.

This has a small cast and the bulk of the first part has virtually no action, just people standing around talking to each other. But this is good solid drama. With the occasional excellent funny line from the Doctor to lighten the mood. Which manages to get darker when required as well. Tom Baker handles all this with aplomb.

This is a proper historical adventure with the Fourth Doctor and Leela.

I really enjoyed this two-part adventure! 'The Wrath of the Iceni' is a good piece of character drama between Tom Baker as the Doctor and Louise Jameson as Leela about the rules of changing history. It's a story where Leela meets Boudica, warrior queen of the Britons!

I've had my CD cover of 'The Wrath of the Iceni' signed by lovely Louise Jameson, who I've met at conventions. I told Louise how much I enjoyed listening to her as Leela on audio, and she mentioned that her favourite out of these stories was 'The Wrath of the Iceni'.

This two-part adventure is by John Dorney, who writes well for Leela. It focuses on Leela's savagery and warrior instincts being put to the test when meeting Boudica. I was impressed with this story and it's is definitely a pure historical adventure with Tom Baker's Doctor.

The Doctor and Leela arrive in Norfolk, c. 60 AD, during the Roman occupation of Britain. They bump into Boudica, warrior queen of the Britons. The Doctor discovers they've arrived before the events of a truly brutal massacre on the Romans by Boudica and her Iceni tribe.

Now I'll be perfectly honest with you, I never heard of Boudica before; nor did I know much about the Roman occupation of Britain. But after watching a segment of 'Horrible Histories' with Boudica and discovering this audio drama, I got to learn more about who Boudica was.

She's certainly a formidable and one of the most pretty violent historical characters to discover in a 'Doctor Who' story. Her violent tendencies are explored and explained as to why she hates the Romans so much in terms of what she suffered with loss of her family.
