This review is from: "Doctor Who": Hornets' Nest: Circus of Doom v. 3 (BBC Audio) (Audio CD)
I loved this story and can't understand why others didn't. It takes place in the early 19th Century as the Doctor follows his foes back in time. Arriving in the small town of Blandford he finds the place almost deserted. A shop assistant tells him that the townsfolk are all still in bed, having been the previous night to "The Circus of Delights", a travelling circus that has recently arrived in town. The Doctor soon realises that there is something amiss about this troupe and before you know it he's in the thick of an adventure. Very dark and macabre. Fast moving too.
Tom Baker is completely in character as the Doctor by now and i believed every word he said and every second of the story.
