Death rides in the greenwood, doing its lords' bidding and hunting souls whose Time has come. But now a Time Lord is hunting Death... 5* (2 episodes, 2 CDs, 100 min)

An emergency landing brings the Doctor and Peri to a very Olde English landscape; the baron in his castle, the priest in his church, peasants in the village, a few outlaws in the forest - and Herne the Hunter, huge, skull-headed, antler-crowned, riding with the hounds of hell in chase of those who defy the Way. Something is definitely not right in this `merrie' land and the Doctor intends to find out what...

This is a brilliant Sixth Doctor `Lost Story' by Brian Finch, originally written for television and now cleverly adapted for audio by his son Paul. It would have been a superb adventure to watch, but, as Nicola Bryant says on the enjoyable documentary tracks, it would have cost a season's budget to make!

It's a clever, complex story, with echoes of one or two other science-fiction stories but making a very original adventure with many twists and multiple layers; every time you think you've guessed who is who or where the plot is heading, there's a turn and a new vista is revealed - four times in all. This makes it practically impossible to say *anything* about the plot, because it's far too good to spoil. However, if you've come to this story hoping for the Doctor in a `Robin Hood' style tale of swords and villains and more-or-less valiant outlaws, you'll get it - and that's just the start.

The story is divided into two long episodes in the style of the mid-1980s. Episode 1 unfolds in and around the village of Newhaven, where young people never grow old... they never have the chance; the baron gives life and, when their Time has come, the baron takes it away...

Format: Audio CD
Latest in the series of doctor who audio plays that adapts scripts which didnt make it to the screen during colin baker's era in the role on tv.

This follows the format of the two previous ones by having two long episodes, fifty five and fifty nine minutes, with one to a disc. Both discs end with fifteen minutes or so of interviews with cast and crew. And these tell the story of how this script wasn't as well known about as some of the other lost ones, and how the son of the man who wrote it discovered the existence of this range by chance and how he came to adapt it to audio as a result.

And thank goodness he did. Because this is a very pleasant surprise, being a story of high quality.

It begins with the doctor and peri landing in what appears to be medieval england, as a young man from a village is being hunted. Amongst the hunt is the mythical figure Herne. When people of this world reach a certain age, their time is up. And that's what the man is running from.

What follows would appear to be conventional doctor who in many ways. Doctor and companion discovering oppressed people and getting separated and making new friends whilst helping the rebels free themselves. But the pleasure is in the details. The setting is original - some of the plot may remind you of a certain famous science fiction film from the 70's, but it throws in a twist on that - the supporting characters are well written and well played, and the plot does manage some excellent twists and turns. An excellent cliffhanger at the end of part one throws in an interesting new element.

At the heart of it though we have the sixth doctor and peri how they should be written.

This is one of the series of Lost Stories produced as full cast audio dramas by Big Finish. These are stories which, for various reasons, were written, or had story ideas drawn up for various Doctors in the tv series, but were never made. Big Finish have released nearly 30 of these Lost Stories so far, and they’re a brilliant chance to hear stories that we might have seen on tv, had circumstances been different; and a great opportunity to hear stories of their time, written for the Doctor of the time. This one is the third story in the first series of the Lost Stories.

This particular lost story is from a story commissioned for Season 22 (1985) by Brian Finch, who wrote a lot of tv serial stories, and who died in 2007. His son Paul Finch tells the story on the extras of cd1 of this Lost Story, and explains that the story, though commissioned for Season 22, was never made. For what reason is now not known, but Paul read one day in a magazine how Big Finish were making some of the ‘lost stories’ into audio adventures, and he got in contact with David Richardson, a BF producer. The story had been almost fully developed, even to the script stage, and when Big Finish saw what Paul Finch had, they immediately commissioned the story to be adapted for audio and made. I can imagine that some of the reasons why this story never made it to the small screen are the sheer size and scope of the story. It’s a huge tapestry, over a very broad time and place and would have required outdoor scenes, large cast, space ship scenes, and very expensive special effects, especially for the 1980s.
