Sputum, venom, pulp, and formaldehyde,
This review is from: Doctor Who Hornets' Nest 5: Hive Of Horror (BBC Audio) (Audio CD)
After four wonderful build up stories the climactic installment in Paul Magrs' Fourth Doctor saga has finally arrived. Whilst not quite as macabrely captivating as "Doctor Who": Hornets' Nest: Dead Shoes v. 2 (BBC Audio) this is still excellent, as Tom Baker's Time Lord, his grim housekeeper the exquisitely named Mrs Wibbsey, and Mike Franklin's redoubtable old soldier Captain Yates, take a journey into the unknown - in this case the inside of a stuffed zebra - in search of the Queen of the swarm, and a final battle with the deadly and insidious Hornets.
Baker is of course outstanding as the impishly arch Fourth Doctor, whilst Franklin, Rula Lenska, and Susan Jameson, provide first-rate support. With echoes of former adventures, and a trademark cavalier rush into danger, this is a complete, and utterly brilliantly bonkers culmination of a terrific series. We want more!
