The Doctor comes to get Wilf but has to settle to Sylvia as he investigates a series of mysterious disappearances at a rest home.

The script is clever and manages to work in some terrifying concepts and a bit of a mystery, good comedy, as well as some social commentary. Sylvia's attitudes towards the residents from the early part of the episode are challenged, and she goes on a bit of a journey throughout.

Jacqueline King does a great job bringing Sylvia back to life. At times, her pushiness and lack of consideration can be annoying, but when the chips are down and the Doctor is hampered, Sylvia rises to the occasion and shows her strength as a character.

Wild Pastures is a strong story, led by an excellent Jacqueline King, but supported by a somewhat inconsistent script by James Goss. King is a delight, leading her own story with a performance that, while slightly out of character for the televised version of Sylvia, nonetheless stands out well. She’s joined by a returning Jacob Dudman, who does a strong job in the story in his various roles, but especially in the narration for the tale. James Goss crafts an interesting plot for the story, that brings in some interesting elements of horror and shock to craft an interesting, sort of “base under siege” style story. But I though he struggled with the characterization of Sylvia, as it strayed too far from the established, more interesting character on TV, without introducing an interesting, exciting new angle to the character. It drags a lot of the story down, and almost makes the story feel like it was crafted for someone other than Sylvia, like Jackie Tyler, who would’ve been a great fit in this story. It’s a big part of the story, and it helps to drag the tale down a bit, making for the weakest entry into the set.
