The TARDIS lands in the middle of the overture to Westside Story and the crew discover the gangs of New York are kind hearted lovable rogues. If you can get your head past that, the story moves into a very good historical drama.

The TARDIS cast are excellent in their recreation of the key roles, though the supporting cast with their New Yoik accents are a bit much.

The bulk of the story is set against the backdrop of the great white hurricane, a historical event I had never heard of, so I was dependent on Barbara to learn about this. Its a good thing she was a history teacher, though I doubt this storm would have made it into the British curriculum.

With this story, this alternate cast comes into their own with a tremendous historical set during the Great Blizzard of 1888. It's a great story that doesn't feature major historical characters, but rather helps us connect with ordinary people who find themselves trapped in the blizzard while also struggling with their own challenges in life. The way that the crew relate to these people is what ultimately makes this such a great release. This is just superb. It's one of the best historicals Big Finish ever released. Well worth a listen.

I'll make a review of both audios here: while the plots are quite strong,I find the voices are not very reminiscent of the original voices of the companions (David Bradley is very good but a bit weak on One's indignation) In particular, Susan's posh accent is quite irritating
