4.0 out of 5 stars The Wishing Beast, 24 Feb 2008
This review is from: The Wishing Beast (Doctor Who) (Audio CD)
In the 3-part 'The Wishing Beast' the 6th Doctor and Mel find themselves battling a pair of witch-like sisters and their hideously mutated brother. A pleasantly spooky fairy tale style story enlivened by some moments of humour (including a ghost-destroying vacuum cleaner), this is brisk, enjoyable stuff, and only slightly let down by the rather cheesy ending.

1-part story 'The Vanity Box' makes a lovely coda, as this linked tale finds the 6th Doctor and Mel encountering a hairdresser with a peculiar talent for making his clients look younger. Much more comedic in tone than the main story, boasting thick Mancunian accents and the 6th Doctor in drag, this is fabulous stuff.

All in all two enjoyable interlinked tales, and one of the more successful of Big Finish's experiments in the double story package.
