I love Doctor who stories that are just pure historical Like the Witch hunters, this had no crazy time travel scheme or aliens taking over the world, but just brutal history taking part and the consequences of being involved.Great story. Ein spannender Background aber f r das Medium Audio etwas ungeeignet Epische Schlachten sind im H rspiel eben nur L rm Der Rest besteht auch nur aus Klischees und ist dazu noch ziemlich langweilig dargebracht Durch die verschachtelte Erz hlweise wird noch dazu jegliche Spannung die durch Hex Schicksal entstehen k nnte zunichte gemacht.Positiv f llt jedoch auf, dass Cromwell als die ambivalente Figur dargestellt wird die er in den Geschichtsb chern ist und nicht auf die ein oder andere Weise Ein spannender Background aber f r das Medium Audio etwas ungeeignet Epische Schlachten sind im H rspiel eben nur L rm Der Rest besteht auch nur aus Klischees und ist dazu noch ziemlich langweilig dargebracht Durch die verschachtelte Erz hlweise wird noch dazu jegliche Spannung die durch Hex Schicksal entstehen k nnte zunichte gemacht.Positiv f llt jedoch auf, dass Cromwell als die ambivalente Figur dargestellt wird die er in den Geschichtsb chern ist und nicht auf die ein oder andere Weise festgelegt wird Sch n sind auch die Erw hnungen dar ber, wie sehr der Doctor sich seit seinem ersten Auftreten entwickelt hat Insgesamt gibt es ein paar nette Charaktermomente, was der pl tschernden Story aber nicht unbedingt weiter hilft A grim straight historical about Oliver Cromwell s campaigns in Ireland So that s not going to be controversial, then It probably helps to have some idea of the real word background to this, but it s not essential, focussingon the human level, and being in the style of, say, The Massacre The challenge is as much to simply make it out alive as to actually change or improve anything, but if you don t mind the grimness, it s quite well made, and Cromwell is suitably complex. This was an excellent audio A proper historical with drama and characterisation and a fascinating plot I liked how the adventure slipped back and forth between Hex and Ace talking in the TARDIS and the adventure as it unfolded It was good to see how much everything was affecting Hex and how almost delicate he was It was lovely to see that much investment in a companion Simon is one of my favourite big finish writers and this one was no exception.

While I didn t care for the story itself admittedly, I knew very little of Cromwell going into this I did enjoy the character moments that came out of this Hex continues to grow on me, and Ace continues to be awesome, here actingas the emotional anchor for Hex than her usual bombastic force of nature It was somewhat surprising to hear Sophie Aldred utter the line when I was a teenager in reference to traveling with the Doctor, and realize just how much time has passed in universe wit While I didn t care for the story itself admittedly, I knew very little of Cromwell going into this I

Terror of the Autons and Casey in The Talons of Weng Chiang, with a generous half a finger for each of Chip in New Earth and Brannigan in Gridlock, neither of whom as characters can ever have been near Ireland Irish people are less visible than black people in Who of any era meanwhile entire stories are set if not necessarily filmed in Scotland and Wales return return return return It s not too difficult to understand this reticence, at least from the Old Who perspective Doctor Who is, after all, an entertainment show, and for most of its run it was rather tricky to engage with Irish issues both tastefully and entertainingly Supporting evidence So You Think You ve Got Troubles, the unsuccessful sitcom starring Warren Mitchell as a Jewish businessman sent to Belfast A couple of the Pertwee novelisations mention the Northern Ireland troubles in the background if any of the spinoff novels go there, I have not yet encountered them Turning the focus around, Daragh Carville s magnificent play Regenerations download link here takes Sophie Aldred and Tom Baker to Belfast to bring peace both to the local Doctor Who fans and to the citywidely return return return return Guerrier s choice of setting for The Settling, therefore, is pretty brave Making the story a pure historical tale is also pretty challenging you can just play it for laughs which can be done successfully The Romans, The Crusaders, The Kingmaker and stretching a point The Unicorn and the Wasp or, as Guerrier has done, go for therisky didactic approach,demanding of both cast and audience This can fail miserably eg The Marian Conspiracy , but it can work well witness the early Hartnells, The Witch Hunters or The Council of Nic Brilliant More like this please No squirrelly aliens No
