I have only seen the recon of this one that is on the DVD, but I have heard the full audio soundtrack. Not a bad "historical," but maybe a tad long. Excellent guest cast.

This is one story I really love as well. The recon is excellent and it is a shame to me that this episode was wiped. Hopefully an animation of this episode will be feasible some day.

If this show is ever found, I hope it will live up to the legend it has created. I have seen a LC reconstruction, but that is all.

Great story! Such a shame this story is still missing. Nonetheless, I enjoyed the reconstruction.

No aliens, no monsters: just an evil, deceitful, selfish, power-hungry human villain and a cool adventure in the past. Definitely a great 'historical' story, as SeaDevil said.

I think it was probably too long and it felt quite slow in the middle, but it picked up again and managed to sustain my interest throughout. My only real problem would be that the resolution was quite rushed:

Spoiler:
 

Nonetheless, I still enjoyed this story very much. For a story that's quite unlike other Doctor Who stories, in that it actually has a human villain as opposed to some amazing alien species or something, this story was fun and interesting. Would have been nicer if the resolution wasn't so rushed but actually I still liked this story. 4 stars from me. bounce
