This story is, in my opinion, near perfection. The sixth doctor is brilliant in this one and frobisher is such a different and fun companion and he has some great exchanges with the doctor in this story. The characters in this story are all written brilliantly and the mystery behind what was going on really kept me intrigued throughout. Rob Shearman does an excellent job of writing a horrifically dark story but still with its humourous moments and he is by far my favourite writer. This story is probably my favourite doctor who story of all time in any medium.

Excellent early story of the monthly range and our first taste of how good the range can jump to.
I admit it’s not all perfect (to me) but it’s smart, well acted and gripping to the end !

“The Holy Terror” (“La Terreur sacrée”) est parfait pour commencer : l’histoire, fascinante, peut s’écouter indépendamment de la série télé ou des autres histoires audio.

Niveau de difficulté : +

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Français anglophone et Doctor Who-phile, je me suis lancé en 2017 dans l’exploration des productions de Big Finish. J’espère que mes avis aideront d’autres « whoviens » francophones à sauter le pas.
Voici mon échelle de difficulté :
+ : facile à comprendre
++ : quelques détails m’ont échappé mais cela ne nuit pas à la compréhension générale
+++ : quelques détails clés de l’intrigue m’ont échappé (à compléter par la lecture de résumés en ligne) / peut demander des connaissances en histoire britannique
++++ : une large partie de l’histoire m’a échappé / histoire difficilement audible (déformation de voix, etc.)

-------------------------------------------------------------------
As an English-speaking French Whovian, I threw myself into the exploration of Big Finish productions in 2017. I hope my reviews will help other French-speaking Whovians to take the plunge.

Don't quite get the hype for The Holy Terror; which is probably why I went into it with high expectations. Frobisher is fine, I don't mind a unique, different to the normal companion. But not much goes on during the story. I admit I really enjoyed Part 3's cliffhanger, very powerful stuff. But the payoff to the story doesn't feel right to me for some reason. Not bad, but certainly not as good as I was expecting.
