3.0 out of 5 stars Worth waiting for?, 1 Feb 2010
This review is from: "Doctor Who": Hornets' Nest: Sting in the Tale v. 4 (BBC Audio) (Audio CD)
It was a pleasure to hear Tom Baker in a new story as the Doctor and have the enjoyment of listening to a story that I had not heard before. However, having waited many years for Tom Baker to be persuaded to undertake a Doctor Who audio adventure, I have to admit I was expecting something more profound than this. In my view, the story in this series of linked plays is at the sillier end of the Dr Who spectrum. True, it was good to hear those wonderful Baker tones again, but at times this sounded more like a parody than the real thing; With implausible character names, excessive use of the thesausrus and a weak story line. Captain Yates is an odd choice of companion and a stonger personality would probably have helped Tom, who seemed at times to be carrying the play single handedly. Big Finish - who could certainly do silly stories - produced many much stronger productions than this. Having said all that, there aren't too many Tom Baker audio adventures to choose from, so beggars probably should not be too choosy. I did enjoy it - and I certainly hope Tom does more audio - but I do hope he gets a stronger story next time that resists the urge to parody itself.
