House of blue fire starts in a spooky old house with two women not having any memory of who they are or how they got there. The first two parts of the story take place primarily in this house and are very atmospheric with some very spooky moments.

I don't think that parts 3 and 4 are as good, they arn't bad but just arn't as good as the first half. The villain is quite interesting and the way it invaded peoples minds was quite good. The character of sally was also very good and she was a very intelligent character who had some fun interactions with the doctor.

As usual Mccoy gives a great performance and the seventh doctor is his manipulative old self and i thought that the moments between him and the villain in part 4 were very good. Overall a pretty good release with some great performances all round.

Really enjoyed the first 2 episodes. A story that is more simple than it first seems although some of scientific ideas are lost on me.

How does anyone get in the army if they have such a fear of water that they can't have a bath?

The House of Blue Fire is a story of two halves. The first two parts of the story are set in a spooky house. Four people find themselves in a spooky house, remembering nothing about themselves other than their greatest phobia. The Doctor doesn't actually appear until the end of the first episode. Everything about these first two episodes is brilliantly atmospheric and the performances by the guest actors are superb.

The story does lose momentum a little in the third episode when we begin the reveal of what's going on before recovering a bit of steam in the final episode. The last two episodes aren't bad but they're not quite as good as the very solid beginning.

Still, the music and direction is solid throughout and the guest cast is a delight. Overall, despite being uneven, this is a very solid outing for the Seventh Doctor.
