A pleasant listen...,

..if not exactly earth-shattering. It's great that Mary Tamm has joined the range of companion chronicles as I always preferred her version of Romana and have long wished for further adventures with her character. She reads the story excellently, perfectly recapturing her Romana like she's never been away, and voices all the other characters too, which is quite a feat as there are a lot of them.(although her take on the Doctor is rather poor). The meditteranean setting in the 1920's is very nice, and the monsters are suitably repulsive. Great sound design and music too. The plot is rather lightweight and unremarkable however, and the story just sort of passes you by, but in an inoffensive way. It does, however, fit well into the context of the era of the show it's set in, which is pleasing. Let's hope we get more adventures with Mary Tamm's Romana, but hopefully with extra guest actors rather than having her do all the work.
