The Renaissance Man (Doctor Who: The Fourth Doctor&hellip by Justin Richards

'The Renaissance Man' is the second in Big Finish Productions' new series of Fourth Doctor Adventures, starring Tom Baker as the Doctor with Louise Jameson as Leela. Whereas the first in the series, 'Destination Nerva', seemed to be a deliberate attempt to play up the nostalgia factor for fans of the show's 1970s heyday, this story takes a slightly different approach, and is an altogether less conventional narrative.
