Format: Audio CD
The Fifth Doctor is on Arteris and is drawn into a quest with the barbaric warlord Grayvorn, a nun, and (much to his chagrin) the rogue timelord/Cabaret singer Iris Wildthyme.

The story works best on the level of high concept sci fi (particularly when it comes to the artifact the quest is all about) and the chemistry between the Doctor, Iris (played by Katy Manning), and Grayvorn (Anthony Stewart Head). The moments between Iris and the Doctor are priceless, mostly humorous, but at least once, there was a more heartfelt exchange about the apparently recent death of Adric.

While not a great story, this was still a solid start to the Excelis series and I thoroughly enjoyed the audio.
