A wonderful and richly imaginative story filled with excellent characters and wonderful performances. Eleanor Bron and Nicky Henson deserve special mention, but the whole case is wonderful, and the script gives them all plenty to work with. Marc Platt also does a great job with Turlough, and really nails Turlough's somewhat difficult relationship with the Doctor. They get along, and there's plenty of mutual respect between them, but they really don't see things the same way.

Coming as it does on the heels of Minuet in Hell, it's very nice to see that Big Finish can handle more adult subject matter appropriately after all.

This is a terrific tale by Marc Platt that finds the Fifth Doctor and Turlough in Brazil for Carnival and they cross paths with werewolves gathering to face a perilous the threat.

The story is nicely layered and filled with complex layers and imagines a Werewolf culture that mixes popular werewolf lore with our knowledge of dogs, and Platt's rich imagination.

The story gives Turlough some interesting material and the Doctor gets a romance of sorts and is actually one of the stronger portrayals of the Fifth Doctor as Peter Davison has some great moments.

Overall, this is an enchanting and memorable release.

Doctor and Turlough in Brazil circa 2080 with a pack of werewolves, great idea! Lots of werewolf politics and great characterisation but turlough is a bit annoying. First episode was a bit of a drag. They seem to spend the first 20 mins being chased and wandering aimlessly unless I missed something which I might have. They get attacked by wild dogs and when they bugger off Turlough just fires of questions. Odd reaction. But there is some smart dialogue 'get away from it, or get away with it?' Not much music which is refreshing because it creates a more natural atmosphere. Good cliff hangers but the cliff hanger to ep 3 was a marriage proposal, which made me laugh. I was taking it slightly out of context though :)

One of Big Finish's finest, and easily Davison's finest moment as the Doctor. Anyone who sees Five as a wet fish of a character might have their minds changed at the cliffhanger to episode 3. A beautiful, multi-layered ending that will leave you thinking for a long time.
