Everything to do with Isaac Newton is brilliantly and cleverly written. The only thing that makes this story a 9 for me rather than a 10 is the uneven tone. It's not that I object to the comedy. It's actually quite good. But I feel like all these comedy underlings don't belong in the same story with these tense interrogation scenes. It's not a terrible flaw, and it doesn't make the story any less enjoyable, but it does detract a bit for me. If this had more of the tone of a Lucarotti historical than a Spooner historical, I would have enjoyed it even more.

The Doctor and Nyssa become embroiled in a monetary excursion against a hilariously enraged and almost psychotic Isaac Newton. This one is easily the lightest of the stories and works as a comedic combination of history, mystery, intrigue and sci-fi. David Warner plays Newton himself and it's such a different turn than I was expecting for the character. It's so amusing to see Five get so irritated with and yet still so fanboy gushing over a historical figure almost to the point of Twelve's relationship with Robin Hood in 'Robot of Sherwood'. I wouldn't say that it's quite as interesting as the others in this set and other than the performances, there isn't much that is quite memorable about it. But it's still a fun little historical that will have you laughing and enjoying yourself while you are listening.

Funny and clever and captivating. Superb writing. Peter Davison is hilarious and effective, while David Warner as Isaac Newton is a fantastic experience.

Straight from the off, it is important to make clear, for me historical content, combined with any Doctor Who is a winner. I absolutely, loved the mix it seems to be the ideal ratio of history, mystery, intrigue and sometimes a smattering of science fiction. This is a 30 minute episode which is part of the four part exploration of the theme of time in this release Circular Time. This time we see the wonder that is David Warner play a rather unnerving, unimaginable intelligent Isaac Newton who unpicks the Doctor and Nyssa cover, by the mere mistake of handing over the wrong coins in the wrong time zone, they find themselves in all sort of trouble, which involves Newton.

What stands out for me in this is David Warner, with Paul Davidson as his parry the pair excel and shine, you can almost hear the quality acting flow as the story starts to unfold. Although this sounded from the off like it was going to be a standard 1hour 30minutes of the normal Big Finish output, it wasn't and that I fear is it's biggest failing, this could well have played out and made a good release as the material is probably the best of all 4 of these mini adventures.
