The First Doctor said it often enough: you can’t rewrite History or meddle with Time! In fact, you shouldn’t, but you can – and this is what happens when you do… Two rival kings at the same time is a problem; the same king at two rival Times is much, much worse… and it’s all the fault of his loyal supporter Jamie McCrimmon… 5* (2 episodes, 1 CD, 56 minutes + extras)

One day late in the 18th century, on a windswept moor somewhere in the Highlands of Scotland, a visitor from a certain Agency (the words ‘Intervention’; and ‘Celestial’ belong there too) has arrived to talk with a middle-aged piper. To help the conversation along, he restores the lost memories of the man who, in his youth, supported the ’45 Rising and fought at the battle of Culloden – and vanished in a strange blue box… or did he…?

Jonathan Morris’ ‘The Glorious Revolution’ is a terrific adventure in the ‘Companion Chronicles’ range. It’s an ‘educational’ historical in the classic style, a fun costume romp perfectly suited for the Second Doctor’s impish qualities and a dramatic temporal paradox story which illustrates exactly WHY the Doctor is so cautious about changing Earth’s history – while being prepared to turn every other planet upside down on a weekly basis. It’s all to do with being personal…

And the Glorious Revolution was certainly personal for Jamie. England in 1688 mostly celebrated the peaceful expulsion of the (Catholic) King James II (or James VII as Jamie calls him, as the Scots counted it) and his replacement by the (Protestants) William and Mary, and the transfer of more power from the monarch to Parliament and people.

Modern Doctor Who would probably refer to The Glorius Revolution as "Timey - Wimey" featuring as it does Jamie travelling back in time and changing history. To counter this the Time Lords dispatch an agent to the Highlands of Scotland where he meets a Jamie who is forty years older than when he left the TARDIS at the end of The War Games. Restoring his lost memories the Time Lord agent must endeavour to find out where and when Jamie altered history.

Its a fascinating premise for a story and a premise upon which it delivers superbly. Jonathan Morris's script is excellent and coupled with Frazer Hines fantastic reading makes The Glorious Revolution one of the best Companion Chronicles yet. As has been noted before Frazer Hines impersonation of Patrick Troughton really does sound exactly like him, In one scene in particular it is easy to forget that when hearing The Doctor and Jamie arguing that they are both voiced by the same actor. The plot of The Glorious Revolution is an engaging one and zips along at pace and finishes with a very satisfactory ending. Its also nice to see Jamie regain his memory of his travels with the Doctor if only for a short time.

I highly recommend The Glorious Revolution to any Doctor Who fan, and if you haven't heard any Companion Chronicles before then you could certainly do a lot worse than to start with this one.

Definitely one of the better Companion Chronicles - well acted/read, well researched & scripted, with unusual tit-bits about a largely forgotten (but terribly important) episode in the history of this country.
Jamie gets a chance to become involved in events that shaped his life in the eighteenth century, while there's plenty of scope for the sort of historical drama at which the BBC excelled in 1960s.
Good, three-dimensional performances by the guest actors, and Frazer Hines displaying his uncanny impersonation of Patrick Troughton's Doctor. Does this make him the Old or Young Pretender? I hope he gets two fees!

My 33rd Companion Chronicle (a little out of sequence) and one that I am very impressed with. Frazer Hines engagingly tells a story told after The War Games (the final Troughton story and one where McCrimmon ultimately has his mind erased). It would be spoilers to say how this works, but it partly enables a story to be told on more than one level because a paradox is involved and ultimately resolved. It involves an arguably less well remembered Monarch and related pivotal events.

The story is very true to Jamie McCrimmon's character and the overall product strongly highlights a potential dual interpretation in the series title: "Companion Chronicles". It chronicles an adventure with far more involvement from the companion, and it is a very worthwhile companion to the Doctor Who 'television chronicles'.

I was quite amazed as just how good Frazer Hines can do Patrick Troughton's voice and his character's mannerisms. You really can enjoy their double act despite the same actor. There is also a second performer on the disc who does two completely different roles and again you would not notice.

A very welcome addition to the range, giving us something quite special to the overall Doctor Who canon, particularly with the ending.
