This review is from: Doctor Who Serpent Crest 1: Tsar Wars (Audio CD)
I absolutely loved the Hornet's Nest audio collection that Tom baker did with Susan Jameson and Richard Franklin a couple of years ago - whimsical, dynamic and deliciously macabre all at the same time, Paul Magrs created a colourful distillation of all that Fourth Doctor was.
Naturally then I approached the latest Baker/Magrs offering with a heightened sense of anticipation, but with this first installment I came away a bit nonplussed.
Baker is as charismatic as ever, and with the faithful Mrs Wibbsey at his side, he still cuts a stirring figure, whose voice is his greatest asset. Unfortunately the storyline was generic and bland, and emminently forgettable; hopefully part 2 will see things really get going...
