The Doctor and Romana are in Budapest and they join up with a Vampire hunter to investigate a series of strange murders. While, the idea of alien energy vampires isn't all that interesting and this episode doesn't break new ground with what it does, the episode once again captured the spirit of the era beautifully with a lot of humorous moments worked in, along with a solid performance from Mark Bonnar as the villain and a well-done conclusion, thus making for a very entertaining hour. The cover is also very striking and one of the best ever done for this range.

Great performances here all around.

About the only problem I had here is a common one to the 4DA... it ends too quickly. It is longer than usual, so that's nice, but I was kind of hoping for a cliffhanger into next month once it got over the 50 minute mark. But then, wham, it's over.

To be honest it's hard to go wrong with Tom for me, even his worst, to me, is still better than most, he just simply oozes Who. Those wonderful rumbling tones, the almost, effortless sarcasm, I just love the way that Tom can trot this out without trying. Then when you couple this with a cracker of a story, add Lalla Ward and the wonderful Mark Bonnar and Kate Bracken and throw in John Dorney, Pete Barret and Angelia Mackintosh. This is a fine production, and again makes me fondly remember my childhood. The production quality alone on this, is stunning. They have captured the unique qualities of No.4 very very well. I love the pairing of Tom and Lalla they certainly compliment each other. Even after all the years that have passed, and the fact that the two were married, this pairing still knocks my socks off.

The story, well Eddie as written a classic here,we have Doctor and Romana arriving in Budapest, where we quickly find them involved in the story, now the story is touted as a vampire style story, but in truth there is a wonderful twist in the whole thing. We have The Doctor running around trying to prevent more victims of a mysterious killer, draining victims of nearly all their blood, and we have Lalla doing the science trying to uncover if the victims are actually being turned into vampire's or something with a slightly Who twist (as only they could be). least to say I am not going to spoil it for the listener, I would strongly suggest you buy this. The whole thing I listened to three times as I enjoyed it so much. Wonderful, perfect, and totally without equal.
