On a windswept Northern shore, at the very tip of what will one day become Scotland, the islanders believe the worst they have to fear is a Viking attack. Then the burning comes. They cannot run from it. Water will not stop it. It consumes everything - yet the burned still speak.... The Doctor is looking for a game on the famous Lewis chess set. Instead he encounters a people under attack from a power they cannot possibly understand.

I couldn't give it my usual five star review because I'm not particular to sadder melancholy stories although they are needed for the character to progress this was one of the most melancholy Dr. ventures ever although I did like the Viking joke because if

the doctor was any Norse God it would definitely be Loki

An unabridged reading of the new novel by James Goss featuring the Twelfth Doctor, as played by Peter Capaldi in the hit BBCTV series Doctor Who. An asteroid in the furthest reaches of space - the most secure prison for the most dangerous of criminals. The governor is responsible for the cruellest murderers, so he’s not impressed by the arrival of the man they’re calling the most dangerous criminal in the quadrant. Or, as he prefers to be known, the Doctor.

Besides having the rare view being seen through the eyes and mind through one of the doctors "charges" this is the first story I found really creepy not just the monsters but humans and their societyreally held up a mirror sorta

Marlowe Hapworth is found dead in his locked study, killed by an unknown assailant. This is a case for the Great Detective, Madame Vastra. Rick Bellamy, bare-knuckle boxer, has the life drawn out of him by a figure dressed as an undertaker. This angers Strax the Sontaran. The Carnival of Curiosities, a collection of bizarre and fascinating sideshows and performers. This is where Jenny Flint looks for answers. How are these things connected? And what does Orestes Milton, rich industrialist, have to do with it all?

Besides obviously being able to do Strax's Voice is able to do Peter's version of the doctor so well to as well as his previous and reincarnations particularly one and two although he did not do Jenny or madam as well he gave character to the unknown characters of the story line beyond that of the storyline you to connect and felt empathy with them
