A historical tale that builds and builds,
This review is from: The Book of Kells (Doctor Who: the Eighth Doctor Adventures) (Audio CD)
Set in Ireland during the 10th century (a period when Kells Abbey was plundered by Vikings regularly) this story covers how the book got stolen and recovered a few months later, and naturally the Doctor is involved.
This is the first story recorded for Tamsin Drew (her third in the chronology) and mid way through you are struck by the high quality Big Finish production, acting and also still unsure of how well the Doctor / Tamsin relationship will develop. Meanwhile there is the mystery of who plucked the TARDIS from the vortex!
Suddenly the plot takes off and with the Doctor you get led down a series of events that totally misleads until the final revelation of who the villain is.
At this point the story is hovering at four stars, then after the closing of the story from the Doctor's pov comes a revelation that sets the whole story arc for this series alight - sadly I can't mention what it is without spoiling the whole, but take it on trust this is brilliant!
