"a chillingly atmospheric story which benefits from its small cast and tight focus"

Format: Audio CD
When the (Fourth) Doctor decides to take some time and overhaul the Tardis, he little realizes that his housekeeper, Mrs. Wibbsey is looking for things to sell at the church bring and buy sale. Mrs. Wibbsey trades four pieces of his spatial geometer to a suspicious man who gives her in exchange some strange items that send the Doctor and Mrs. Wibbsey searching through time for the four pieces. Something very strange is going on in time, and the Doctor will have to work very hard to get to the bottom of things!

Believe it or not, this is not part of an old made-for-television series, but is an all-new audio play series created starring Tom Baker and Richard Franklin (reprising his role as Captain Yates). Admittedly Tom Baker does sound a bit older than he did almost 40 years ago, but he sounds close enough that you can easily ignore the differences.

I must say, I found this to be a very fun audiobook. I really liked hearing Tom Baker again as The Doctor, and I enjoyed it even more that it was an all-new story. I found the story to be quite interesting, and quite horrifying. I have no doubts that this audio will please all Tom Baker fans, just like it did me!

First of all, I would like to say how wonderful it is that Tom Baker is back. I loved Doctor Who: Hornets' Nest - The Complete Series and now the new series. Tom's voice is more wonderful than ever. It's so rich, playful, dark, and full of joy.

With the first box of five adventures, it wasn't clear whether any more were going to get made, but with the new series its very clear that we have a brand new era and that they plan to make quite a few of these. It's wonderful news!

I see that there are already five more adventures available under the title "Serpent Crest," but I will wait for the boxed set to buy that one. It's cheaper that way, and looks better on my shelf.

As to this series: I loved the first three discs, especially the third one, but I was quite bored by the fourth and not that interested in the fifth (although it did have a big plot twist which I did not see coming.) I think the first series, The Hornet's Nest, was more even. But do listen to them all in order. They do play upon each other and build just like the episodes of a television series. Keep in mind that the television series is the same, some episodes are better than others. I am deducting one star because I don't feel episodes 4 and 5 of this set were up to the standards of the first 3 (or the five adventures of The Hornet's Nest.)

I will admit that I'm not a fan of Mrs. Wibbsey. The actress does a fine job, but the character doesn't seem to be a very nice person.

Overall, I heartily recommend this to any Tom Baker and/or Doctor Who fans, but isn't that the same thing?

I have listened to The Hornet's Nest all the way through a few times and I imagine I will do the same with this series for many years.

Tom Baker and crew are back again with a DOCTOR WHO audio series that should both please old and new fans . There were some complaints about the first series (Hornet's Nest) being more of an audio book read rather than a ful cast play. Demon Quest, even with a small cast, has more of a radio play approach. In addition the character of Mrs Wibbsey is fleshed out and Susan Jameson gives a solid performance. Mike Yates doesn't really come back until the third story but this actually uses the character more effectively in my opinion.
I understand contracts have been signed for a third series for BBC audio and I am looking forward to it.
Tom stayed away too long, I'm glad the fourth doctor is back in the TARDIS.

With the success of "Doctor Who: Hornet's Nest", BBC Audiodrama was keen to get Tom Baker back in the recording booth. As it happens, Baker was also more than ready, with his love for the character restored, so it was a foregone conclusion. And with Paul Magrs picking up where the previous story left off, the same level of quality was to be expected.

Of course, it would have been all too easy to simply repeat the same formula: having the Doctor recount much of the story, giving Baker a chance to show off his impressive oratory skills. Instead, this five-part epic is a bit more varied. Each of the five episodes (again totaling roughly 5-6 hours of ear candy) is told from a different character's perspective. It keeps the story fresh as events play out, but as one might expect, the quality of the individual episodes varies a bit more, depending on the strength of the narrator.

The central conceit is that a critical piece of the TARDIS has been taken, forcing the Doctor to travel through time on Earth to retrieve the various elements of the instrument, all the while led on this merry chase by unusual objects left for his benefit. On the one hand, this is a familiar Classic Who plot device, and it works particularly well for the episodic format, giving a logical context for the various narrators. On the other hand, many of those "fetch quest" serials felt incredibly forced, and by the end of the story, this particular quest definitely feels extraneous to the point of the villain's gambit.

I was also a bit confused as to the nature of the "demon", especially as the story makes quite a big deal of the potential reveal of the character's identity.
