A well done adaptation of Treasure Island with some very strong performances. Tom Baker is very natural as Long John Silver. He manages to play Silver to the hilt as the lovable rogue of the novel and the best adaptations. Edward Holtom makes for a great Jim Hawkins. He plays the character true to the novel and also makes him relatable as an early teen forced into an impossible situation and rising to the occasion.

Barnaby Edwards script is a sound one. His take on Hawkins is particularly good. Probably the weakest part of the production is the framing device of the older Jim narrating to his son. It doesn't add much to the production.

The sound design is generally solid. It was okay in the first half but really hits its stride in the second half with the sounds of great sea battles coming to life. The music suite is also a delight to listen to that captures the true spirit of Treasure Island.

Overall, Big Finish has produced a worthy adaptation of Stevenson's classic.
