My two favourite things - history and the good Doctor,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Book of Kells (Doctor Who: The Eighth Doctor Adventures) (Audio CD)
Ah, I was in heaven listening to this - my two favourite things in the world - history (especially medieval) and the fine Doctor.
As other reviews have already well covered, the story is set in Ireland at the time of King Sihtric Silkbeard's rule of Dublin, contested by the King of Munster, Brian Boru. The story had a really authentic and muddy feel to it with plenty of mud, middens, and horrid smells which made you feel like you were really there. The cast is good - this is the first audio cd I have heard with Tamsin, and she seems to hold her own against the Doctor when she needs to.
Paul McGann is in fine form as always, and the remainder of the cast also play their parts well. For a historical story, this one certainly played out well.
And make sure you listen carefully after what appears to be the final music of the two part story; that's where it gets really interesting!

It certainly does the clues in the Anagram on the cd sleeve but the purchaser must work that out for themselves.
Wonderful review by a passionate Doctor Who fan, I think Im in love lol.

It's a great story, that's for sure - I always worry about whether historical stories are going to measure up to my historical radar, but this one definitely did.
