    Story
    "Who's better Sherlock Holmes or The Doctor?"

    One of my favorite Doctor who stories. It has a great plot, with my favorite Doctor. It has bit of everything, Sherlock Holmes, Phantom of the Opera, Fu Manchu, Jack the Ripper, Dracula, and Time Machine. It was as the Scriptwriter Robert Holmes tried to combine every plot from the Victoria era in the story. Terrence Dicks did a great job with the novelization.

    "Classic Doctor Who. Well done!"

    The narrator provides just the right tone to this classic story that kept me listening and relistening. A magician in the story bested by the Doctor's magical prowess was one fun part.

    "Brilliant!"

    Another great classic Who adventure. Great narration by Christopher Benjamin, who was excellent in the televised version as Jago. Listened to it in one sitting. This is one of my very favorite Who stories ever. will be listening to it again.
