I have to say that I was skeptical about this story until I saw that Nicholas Briggs was reading it. I felt that the best thing about the 50th anniversary episode of Doctor Who was John Hurt, the War Doctor. I thought that John Hurt was the best thing about it in fact.
So I wasn’t sure of what to expect with this audio story. However, after getting into it I’m quite impressed. Mr Briggs does a very passable John Hurt and has really captured the character of the war doctor. It makes me wonder if there are going to be more stories from the war doctor? I think that might be a good thing.
