Product Description

Review

The Magic Circle is a well-produced, beautiful sounding, totally gripping story that drips with jokes so bad they're good. The acting is right on the button, and as a way of moving the series on after the loss of (Nicholas) Courtney, it does it admirably and touchingly. Basically, it's really good. --Starburst Magazine

The tale is both touching and electrifying, oozing humour throughout. Molloy's delivery as Dunning never fails to make me smile, his reaction the perfect treat... Warner, too, hits the mark with an eagle-eye approach and years of police force experience behind Crow. There is a touch of magic about The Scarifyers and this outing offers an emotional twist in its tale... --Nebula One

Here's another Scarifyers adventure of outstanding class. I've been looking forward to listening it, as it is the first story without mr. Courtney, and was wondering if the series could survive without him. Well, it does and how!

This new story is without doubt as good as any other from the series. It's funny, fast paced and exciting, and very well done. But what makes it stand out is the way in which the death of Nick Courtney has been worked into the story. Rather than just carelessly replacing his character with another, this story sort of revolves around Lionheart's death. It also introduces his replacement in a credible manner, allowing more stories to follow. I feel that here the makers have made a very good choice and have done an outstanding job. I know the team treat the stories with great respect, but now they've shown to also treat team-members with great respect. That makes this story simply suberb!
I really think all Scarifyers fans will love this one!

After listening to the previous wonderful shows first on Radio 4 and then buying the mp3 downloads for adventure 1 and the CDs for the rest (which format I purchased this in), I am aghast to see the only download option as via Audible. This is a horribly restrictive system that requires you to log on and register the device that you intend to use to listen to the show. None of my devices are listed, needless to say. If Amazon is going to move to this system wholesale to deliver non music downloads such as this and shows like Cabin Pressure and Clare in the Community people will go elsewhere, like I am.

By Victor HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 7 Feb. 2013
Format: Audio CD
This is the sixth in the Scarifyer series, and sadly the first not to feature Nicholas Courtney's Lionheart. This release is everything that the previous releases have been - a demonic mystery with a sense of humour that gently riffs off many cultural icons, but it manages to beautifully blend in a tribute to both Lionheart and Courtney.

Introducing Harry Crow, AKA thumper Crow, to the mix as Prof. Dunning's new partner was an excellent decision. And the casting of David Warner truly inspired. As they uncover the mystery surrounding Lionheart's disappearance Molloy and Warner work wonderfully together to bring out the emotion of the piece. I have to say I was almost moved to tears by their reaction to the big reveal at the end of the first episode. Warner fits right in with the series, and I hope that he and Molloy will have many more adventures together.

As well as an at times moving tribute this has everything else that we expect from the Scarifyers. Humour, mystery and intrigue wrapped around an interesting plot. As usual there is a pot shot at a Doctor Who moment, with the Talons of Weng Chiang receiving a bit of a send up in an incidental yet hilarious episode. The tone of the humour and the cultural references it uses are a delight to me. It really seems as though it was written with me in mind, as they all strike so closely to my own personal tastes. Written and produced by people who care and are clearly having fun. And the final scenes are just perfect as a goodbye to Lionheart and Nicholas Courtney's reassuring tones.

People buying the CD version also get a touching 20 minute tribute to Nicholas Courtney from cast and crew at the end of the second disc. This does not appear to be available to download customers. The physical copy has two episodes of about an hour each, one episode per disc on two discs.

All in all an excellent release. Here's hoping for many more to come. 5 stars.

t’s a bit difficult to write a review, and not give away too much of the plot. The tone is more poignant than usual but still has its wacky and funny moments. It centres around the disappearance of Lionheart and introduces the new character of Harry Crowe. It’s a thumping good read/listen and at almost 3 hrs, is very good value for money
