5.0 out of 5 stars Tom's best audio outing yet, 8 Dec 2009
This review is from: "Doctor Who": Hornets' Nest: Sting in the Tale v. 4 (BBC Audio) (Audio CD)
The Hornet's Nest saga hits new heights with this fourth installment, which is easily the best one so far. Tom Baker has improved in leaps and bounds as the stories have progressed, and is at his gloriously eccentric, Doctorish best here. He's totally got back into the role now, and sounds exactly like the fourth Doctor of old. The story has a great setting and the visual descriptions are very evocative, while the plot is sinister and bizarre as usual but easy to follow. An added bonus is that the TARDIS features strongly in this adventure, having been all but absent till now, and the excellent use of authentic TARDIS sound effects really give it that genuine 'Who' feel. Guest star Rula Lenska is excellent as the Hive Queen and all the threads and plot arcs that have been developing all come neatly together at the end and lead nicely into the set up for the final confrontation. I can't wait for the final episode, which thankfully has been released simultaneoulsy with this part. Onwards to the Hive of Horror!

Personally I thought it a very poor series of stories: the concept would have been OK for one story, but running it to five? I didn't work for me, I'm afraid. I'm sure the Big Finish stories Tom Baker is due to do will be much better.
