5.0 out of 5 stars Come along, Mrs Wibbsey!, 22 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Doctor Who: Demon Quest: Relics of Time v. 1 (Audio CD)
Following the wonderful Hornet's Nest series of audio adventures read by Tom Baker, reprising his role as the Fourth Doctor, this is the first of a new series, Demon Quest. This single cd story, The Relics of Time, begins the story as the Doctor returns to Nest Cottage, with his cantankerous housekeeper Mrs Wibbsey in residence. It's nearly Christmas time again, and the Doctor is keen for a bit of time to work on aspects of the Tardis console over the holiday period. However, his maintenance, and Mrs Wibbsey's Church sale collecting causes a bit of strife when a vital piece of the Tardis appears to go missing. But is it? Who is the mysterious stranger who traded several odd objects in a bag for the console part? And why does it seem to lead the Doctor and Mrs Wibbsey on a trail hunt back to Roman Britain?

Captured by a British tribe, and forced into the role of slayer of the mysterious wizard in the next village, the Doctor and Mrs Wibbsey meet up with a lot more than than they bargained for. And are left with more questions than answers as they continue to follow the mysterious object trail.

Tom Baker is, as always, brilliant in his role as the Fourth Doctor. Funny, absent-minded, sometimes a bit grumpy, he is on top form again. As is Susan Jameson as Mrs Wibbsey - and it appears that Captain Mike Yates may be joining them for Christmas again as well - ah, but we need to wait for the next episode to find out what happens next.

Totally brilliant stuff! Highly recommended.

Must admit i struggled with this adventure, I dont think Demon Quest was as good as Hornets Nest & i think Big Finish serves Tom's Doctor far better on audio.

I enjoyed Hornets Nest and Demon Quest, but I think partly because I was just in need of a Tom Baker fix!
Definitely the Big Finish adventures are topnotch, but I wish they'd stop putting two part stories on one cd for Tom Baker's stories - generally the stories are unable to really get going before they're over, so they're maybe not as good as they could be. But they're still great!

I've spoken to BF Feedback explaining it may benefit the story being a 3 parter & dont mind forgoing the CD extras.
