    This story is done as a true historical story as was done in the first doctor s era.

    This was very enjoyable It was almost a full cast audio with just a little narration I thought William Russell did an excellent job as the Doctor, and Maureen was likewise very good as Barbara This really felt like a first doctor historical It was a nice glimpse of the history with interesting sub plots I enjoyed the young Queen and her relationship with Vicki It was nice to see two different women of a similar age in such different places in their lives I will have to listen toof t This was very enjoyable It was almost a full cast audio with just a little narration I thought William Russell did an excellent job as the Doctor, and Maureen was likewise very good as Barbara This really felt like a first doctor historical It was a nice glimpse of the history with interesting sub plots I enjoyed the young Queen and her relationship with Vicki It was nice to see two different women of a similar age in such different places in their lives I will have to listen toof the early adventures range it was nice to have a proper new story with the older companions

    I m not the biggest fan of the historical stories as they usually involve someone famous whose fate is well known Also prefer the audioplay style stories to the narrated ones, this being a mix of both William Russell is now old enough that his Bill Hartnell voice is getting better than his Ian Chesterton.

    Excellent old adventure The Doctor, Barbara, Ian and Vicki end up in the 1400 s during the reign of Henry IV The Doctor and Barbara goto visit with Geoffery Chaucer Vicki befriends Queen Isabella and Ian get some how involved in the assassination attempt on Henry IV What happens you ll have to find out.

    Love a good historical The first episode starts off slow but it does pick up Not sure how I feel about the Deus Ex Machina ending to the Sir Ian and Sir Robert debacle and Ian s rather blas reaction to it but whatever And even though it s a historical it is a Marc Platt so I kept expecting it to get weird but no, Platt kept and even keel and made a fine story.
