Emerald Tiger is a superb pseudo-historical that finds the Doctor, Nyssa, Tegan, and Turlough travelling back to British controlled India in the 1920s where Nyssa is bitten by a rabid man but he has something far more bizarre than rabies.

This is a very well-written story that borrows from classic adventure stories with the Jungle Book being a major influence. The story manages to mix it's adventure with intrigue and strong characterization by the entire cast. The Doctor shows some unusual but some welcomed intensity in this one. Tegan is perfectly realized in this story in a way she never was on television. This story is an example of the great things this TARDIS team is capable of.

The Emerald Tiger contains three of the best cliff hanger ending of any Doctor Who story. There is great acting and a very solid story that the listener gets dragged into.

The supporting cast work very well with strong characters that are born out of the ear of the British Raj, a time and place well established in the story.

What begins as a journey to see a test match becomes a chase across Calcutta and India leading to an ancient alien tragedy that could bring about the end of the world. At the centre of this maelstrom is the emerald tiger whose bond with Nyssa adds a layer to the story telling.

Its only flaw was the lack of effective background sounds. Often the actors spoke with no sound in the background of the busy streets, racing train or jungle beasts. This left it feeling a little hollow, but did not undermine the quality of the story nor its replay value.

The most beautiful score in all BF audios.

Story itself is very interesting and even magical in some way. Love this one.

Don't get the hype with this story at all. It started out strongly but just disappeared into a bit of a dull mess to be honest. Also Vincent Ebrahim was massively over acting and spoiled it for me.
