The Doctor and Tamsin find themselves outside a monastery in 1006 A.D. just about the time the Book of Kels in stolen. Yet, they're are strange goings on including creatures that live inside the Vortex.

The story did start kind of slow as most of the first half is setting the stage, and revealing all these characters. The second half moves at a much quicker space as there's a great deal of mystery as to what's going on.

This was a solid pseudo historical that's held together by good atmosphere and a strong cast. While it was pretty clear who the villain who was, what his scheme was is a bit of an open question. The story ends on a tantalizing scene which ties into the larger plot arc that began back in, "Situation Vacant." Also Tamsin has some good moments in this story.

I did find early parts of the story somewhat dull. Also, I was fooled by the writer's red herring on the villain. Once I knew which Doctor Who baddie in disguise we were dealing with, that part of the story was simple. Still, this is another solid outing for the Doctor and Tamsin.

An absolute favorite! The Doctor gets it wrong, but fixes history anyway in this madcap adventure.

It's not dependent on prior audio stories UNLESS you listen to the post-credits scene.

It's so twisty that telling you most of the things I liked would be a spoiler! I liked this story, especially the richness of the historical premise, and the way it rolled along, and it did what it was trying to do. I just don't think it's very memorable, and if you already know the twists, there's not much to reward you on relisten.
