Maybe not quite worth the 5 stars but this definitely deserves more than 3,
This review is from: Mission to Magnus (Doctor Who: The Lost Stories) (Audio CD)
This is my second favourite of the three lost story novelisations (after 'The Ultimate Foe' which unfortunately is not included in the Big Finish range). As an audio I enjoyed this far more than either 'The Nightmare Fair' or 'Leviathan'. Here are five reasons why:
1. Excellent incidental music (perhaps because it is so unusual and retro)
2. I always love humour in Doctor Who and this play has its fair share
3. Colin Baker and Peri are on excellent form and I prefer Colin's performance in these 'Lost Stories' to the usual range.
4. Returning Characters: The return of Sil is welcome and this beats the pants of his televised return and anything else in 'Trial of a Timelord' (why oh why couldn't this season have been made instead!) The return of the Ice Warriors in the same play makes it even better.
5. The Timelord character and his interplay with the Doctor was very entertaining.
In conclusion this is a very enjoyable play which wonderfully evokes the original series with good plot, characters, dialogue and humour. A good way to spend two hours (the play is divided between two hour long episodes).
