Highly recommended! The saga continues. . .,
This review is from: Doctor Who Hornets' Nest 2: The Dead Shoes (BBC Audio) (Audio CD)
The disc starts with a helpful "The story so far. . ." recap before launching into an intriguing, (and just plain batty), tale of dancers, dolls' houses, piers, hornets and Tom Baker's Doctor at an unrestrained best.
The 'Hornet's Nest' series got off to a poor start as they were advertised as plays; they are not. They are effectively multi-voiced talking books, far more reminiscent of a Sherlock Holmes story where the Doctor (Tom Baker) narrates a tale to Cpt Mike Yates, (the excellent and highly welcome Richard Franklin); in this episode they are in holed up in the cellar of the Doctor's cottage whilst upstairs. . .
I don't want to give away any details as, for me, the pleasure of having the chance to have another adventure with Tom Baker's Doctor is the whole point of these releases and I wouldn't want to spoil anyone else's enjoyment.
I will say that I highly recommend this title and suggest listening in a comfy chair with a box of violet creams and a glass of cream sherry.
