Another classic history lesson....,
This review is from: The Settling (Doctor Who) (Audio CD)
Doctor Who is better when its historical. Sylvester Mccoy leads a brilliant cast in this cracker of a story. Phillip Olivier is great as Hex, one of his best audios so far.
One question...why is it no one ever listens to the wise advice of the good Doctor?! Dont get involved...whenever anyone says this you know no one is gonna listen and that means itll all end in horror and tears.
And this is indeed a harrowing story. Very well directed, presenting horrible images through the audio is tough, but it is done so well on this story.
The Doctor has to deliver a baby! Ha ha! Isnt it great how many new and fresh ideas one can find in doctor who still now fourty years after it first graced our screens in sixty three! And like the Hartnell historicals, this is brilliant and very entertaining. Clive Mantle is great as the deluded and clearly mixed up Oliver Cromwell.
All these ingredients add up to make this another great story from big finish.
