If I had neighbours like Deirdre and Tish I'd be fed up too ...,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Doctor Who: Serpent Crest: The Hexford Invasion: 4 (Audio CD)
Okay, I have to admit I loved this cd! This is the fourth part of the five part Serpent Crest series - in this story, Mrs Wibbsey is pretty much on her own, looking after things at Nest Cottage after the Doctor popped off to take Alex and Boolin home. Nine months later, she's getting a bit fed up - and finds herself obsessing about her new neighbour who seems to have a thing for bees, somethings Mrs W's not keen on.
So when Mike Yates, UNIT soldiers and a mysterious (or is he?) stranger turn up at Nest Cottage, things seem at least be changing. But what exactly is going on? Why is this stranger (who Mike insists is not really a stranger) delving around in the Doctor's belongings, and what's his game really? Why does Mrs Wibbsey find him suspicious? And what is everybody waiting for? What have UNIT been investigating, and why?
Much of the narration in the story, and a lot of the action, is that of Mrs Wibbsey - Susan Jameson is in top form here as Mrs Wibbsey, and it's nice to have Mike Yates back. The Fourth Doctor ("her Doctor", as Mrs Wibbsey says") returns towards the end of the episode and that's when things get really out of hand ... but what does it mean for Hexford, the Doctor, and Earth? Well, that's what we have to wait till episode five to find out, I guess! Can't wait!
