Bryant channels the Doctor very well, and Cameron Stewart is hilarious as Columbus. The plot gets really funny and the sound design is really good. One of the better entries in this range.

In this one, the Eleventh Doctor cameo occurs right at the beginning as he sends the Sixth and Peri forward in time to fetch an Omni Paradox and they end find themselves aboard the Santa Maria and dealing with Christopher Columbus, who initially believes them to be natives.

This story is a solid comedy, though at times over the top. It's mostly fun, although I thought Peri's hysteria at one point in this story was a bit problematic in terms of the portrayal of the dynamic of that relationship. Still, most jokes do hit and the Eleventh Doctor cameo is particularly well done.

So imagine that Christopher Columbus suffered from extreme pride, calling himself the greatest explorer in the world, and went to discover America because a space cow told him to. Yes today's story is one of those mixes of dark and gritty and light hearted comedy from Nev Fountain. The comedic timing from Nicola Bryant is impeccable and her impressions of Colin Baker is great. Also Cameron Stweart is great as Columbus who refuses to believe the Doctor and Peri are stowaways because Indians believe in superstition. Yes there is no way to properly express how well the comedy works without ruining some of the best jokes. It is all comparable to the work of Douglas Adams in this case. If there were any problems is that it gives us yet another addition to the Devil in Doctor Who, the others being in The Daemons, The Impossible Planet and The Satan Pit.

A fun if rather uncharacteristic Sixth Doctor story narrated by Nicola Bryant (who does a very funny Matt Smith impression). If you like Nev Fountain's style of humour you'll enjoy this too. It has just the right amount of story for a one disc tale and is filled with amusing ideas and jokes. It's a good outing for Peri's character as she gets to drive the story more than usual. The only negatives are the rather silly villains of the piece and the mechanics of its time-travel plot which would, I feel be more at home in the Hitch-Hikers Guide To The Galaxy.
