"In a market saturated with Doctor Who audio... there is nothing else even remotely like the acclaimed Paul Magrs / Tom Baker multi-voice adventures, and I’m pleased to report that the first instalment of their Demon Quest saga really hits the ground running." (doctorwhoreviews.co.uk)

Fresh off the success of the Hornets' Nest audio series, Tom reprises the role (along with his hat and scarf) once again for another five-part audio series called Demon Quest. In tow is Susan Jameson reprising her role as Mrs Wibbsey (the Doctor's Housekeeper!) as the Time Lord's companion from Hornets' Nest, and the whole arc is written by the same man, Paul Magrs.
Set one year after the conclusion of Hornets' Nest, the Doctor returns to Nest Cottage to see how Mrs Wibbsey is adapting to her new life. Unfortunately, whilst the Fourth Doctor is rebuilding the TARDIS, Mrs Wibbsey accidentally sells a key component at the jumble sale! But upon investigation, its revealed that the purchaser traded the TARDIS part for a bag containing four mysterious items, which leads the Doctor and his companion on a travel to Ancient Britain, shortly before Emperor Claudius' invasion, and find themselves caught in-between a war of opposing tribes.
The Relics of Time is an enjoyable audio play. Tom Baker, a natural voiceover, settles in comfortably to the role once again. He narrates the events with great charm and sophistication, bringing life to the character of HIS Doctor, which remains the stuff of legend. You can visualise this chapter of Demon Quest as though you were watching an original episode of the old series.Read more ›
With The Doctor and Wibbsey on the case of an Emperor Claudius impersonator, and about to arrive at the famed Moulin Rouge theatre, things are poised perfectly and I can't wait for part 2 to arrive..!
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.
Whilst these return to the setting of Hornet's nest - a little cottage that the Doctor stays at from time to time, tended by housekeeper Mrs. Wibbsey who used to live in an earlier time - you don't need to have heard Hornet's nest to get into this as it does pretty much stand on it's own.
This opening story sees the Doctor having problems with the TARDIS, thanks to Mrs. Wibbsey, which leaves it only able to travel in time rather than space. Someone is in possession of the components the Doctor needs to fix things, but this mystery person has left behind some strange artefacts that lead the Doctor and Mrs. Wibbsey back to ancient britain.
In the face of warring tribes, an elephant, and a certain person who shouldn't actually be there, there's a mystery for the Doctor to solve.
This runs for fifty seven minutes and is one long episode, the only break on the cd being cd chapters. It's narrated by Tom Baker in character and he seems to be enjoying himself very much. There were times in hornet's nest when it felt more like it was him reading narration rather than playing the doctor, but that's never a problem here. And by having the bulk of it done as dialogue it also avoids the problem of earlier parts of hornets nest which had too much narration. The fourth doctor and slightly dotty old ladies have always been a good combination and the character and Mrs Wibbsey spark off each other quite nicely. In not a great manner.Read more ›
