It's very hard to grade Paul Magrs writing down. The vivid descriptions of this 19th Century circus really bring the story to life as the Doctor and the Hornets continue to chase each other in opposite directions through time. The story is creepy and atmospheric. Unfortunately, that's really as far as it goes. The Doctor remains mostly inactive in the Hornets evil scheme until the final twenty minutes or so and I still don't know what he was supposed to have done or how the Hornets were supposed to be defeated. It's a vivid story but not much of a Doctor Who story.

The Doctor investigates the circus of delights where the towns people are becoming the stars of the show. This one has more narration that the first two and is the most boring so far.

The Circus of Doom is pretty much exactly what I would have expected from this Doctor/writer combo. It's an imaginative, slightly strange and eerie story, populated with interesting characters and enriched with some good plot twists. The sound design is absolutely wonderful, capturing the circus atmosphere perfectly. Definitely the highlight in the Hornets' Nest series.
