So after listening to the Doctor recount his tales of horror in the cellar overnight while the re-animated objects run amok in the Nest, we finally come to the end of the tale of the horrendous hornets.
This part of the story had a good mix of both Captain Yates and the Doctor recounting the story, as it happened and in retrospect, as they both end up playing slightly different roles in the final dust-up with the hornet Queen. And who is under her influence, and who is not? We just have to get all the way to the end to find out.
A feel-good ending on Christmas Day and everyone enjoys their Christmas dinner, and Mrs Wibbsey seems to have reconciled herself to her lot, rather than spending her days looking after an 'intergalactic dilettante' - great stuff indeed.
This series is definitely worth the listen, and I can't wait for more from Tom Baker - hopefully Captain Yates will be back too; he well and truly seems to have redeemed himself from his 'breakdown' while at UNIT all those years previous.
Highly recommended, especially for all the Tom Baker fans in the world (which includes me).
