How do the Doctor and Mrs W get home again?,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Doctor Who Serpent Crest 2: The Broken Crown (Audio CD)
This is the second part in the five-part series. When we left the Doctor and Mrs Wibbsey at the end of the first episode, they were back in Hexford - but not in the right time period. How have they ended up in 1861, and what are they going to do about getting back home? When they meet the local Reverend, they realise that his ward and the ward's tutor Mr Bewley may be people they've met before. But is there another danger waiting for the Doctor and Mrs Wibbsey as well?
As the second of a five part series, this episode suffers slightly from setting further scenes - we're over the first exciting new part of episode one, and haven't really yet got to the nitty gritty that hopefully will build up in the later episodes. So there's a bit of a holding pattern going on in this story; that's not to say it's not enjoyable, because it is. The characters, and the actors playing those parts, are great - in particular the Reverend; and Tom Baker and Susan Jameson are, as usual, in top form.
The episode ends on a cliffhanger with the Doctor and Mrs W once again transported to who knows where and who knows when? (Mind you, I have my suspicions about where they are). What awaits them there? And how will they nullify the risk of the Skishtari egg, and get back home? Is Mike Yates still there waiting for them? Let's find out! Great stuff.
