A very background episode, put this one on when you are doing something. The episode isn't boring in anyway, it is a bit of fun but theres not much there. Only really known for introducing K-9 and he is a standout for the story. 4 and Leela are fun, as well as Prof. Marius. Not terrible, but not one I will be rushing back too.

Really enjoyed listening to this first story; at the time of reviewing I haven't listened to the second story so I'm not sure how everything about this set plays out. There is something that doesn't feel right about this set though, although its trying to be the First Doctor and co, it feels modern, like it would have during the 60s. This is very much a "reinvention" as Big Finish promised. It feels like we're starting again. This still fits into continuity, with references to the Aztecs, Edge of Destruction and even to some of Big Finish's own stuff like "The Beginning." As the original announcement claims, these aren't impressions of the original cast, they are a reinvention; they are still the characters we've come to love in the last 50 years but with slightly different voices saying the lines.
It does make me want to go back and watch some of the classic Hartnell stories such as the Aztecs, The Edge of Destruction and the Romans, to just dive back into that era of the show.
Now, the Master. In this story, his motives are very much the Master we all know. But I don't know why it had to be the "First Master", it makes it such a long time between him and the Delgado incarnation that I think Big Finish want to later fill in, when I like the idea of a story where the Master burns through a few bodies because of some freak experiment he was conducting fails. However, Dreyfus puts in a great performance and in some scenes is scary in a way that i've never thought of the Master in that way and you remember how evil this guy is supposed to be. I would like to see this incarnation again, so i'm glad that there are rumors he will be appearing in the 4th Doctor Adventures in the near future.
Overall, I can't recommend this story, or boxset to anyone who wants a faithful Hartnell era adventure, if you can put in mind and get over the fact that this is a re-telling or reinvention of that era, that still fits in our precious continuity then I would highly recommend the purchase. :)

Although the lower rating may suggest I don't like this episode, I really don't. Back during the press and promotion for The Return of Doctor Mysterio was trying to be a faithful retelling of superhero movies like the old Superman films form the 70s and 80s, it completely does that. They're nice and cheesy and are a bit of fun; but it isn't anything special. There's nothing really 'Doctor Who' about it other than a few great Doctor moments from Capaldi.
I will watch it again but it's nothing i'm in a rush for.

An underrated, fun romp of a tale. One of Gatiss' best imo.
