5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent audio play, 8 Nov 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Council of Nicaea (Doctor Who) (Audio CD)
This is one of the most enjoyable Big Finish audios I have heard (out of about 20 plays). Personally I even preferred it to 'Spare Parts'.

You don't have to be interested in Christianity, only in history, to appreciate the story. It is interesting to see how Church doctrine and power arose; and that a hotly debating council decided on the divinity of Jesus about 300 years after he died. I think Arias' position was more sensible, but if you don't know what I'm on about then listen to the play.

Equally interesting are both the character of Constantine and the violence and involvement of men on the street which is what makes for a good traditional 'Doctor Who' historical adventure. There is a lot of tension and drama showcasing the audio format at its best and evoking the classic tv series itself.

Peter Davison gives a sterling performance. His vulnerability and argumentativeness are utilised to good effect in a plot that also partly hinges on the tension between him and Erimen.

Highly enjoyable.
