Andrew Smith does an excellent job of resurrecting the whole mythos that was the William Hartnell era of Doctor Who. I enjoyed the fact that he took the time to recall and research the classic episodes as well as the original comics. William Russell's portrayal of William Hartnell was very believable - he had it down to the hems and haws. Carole Ann Ford's also was excellent in her version of Jacqueline Hill's Barbara.
I like how the stories that have been recently coming out for the earlier doctors are fully equipped with all of the sounds and nuances of the fully casted soundtracks of the early lost episodes that were released a couple decades back. They somehow have a little better feel than Big Finish's usual fully performed stories - where they use narration instead of dialogue overkill to give the audience a visual of everything that is happening. I give this story a Mary Poppins rating: "Practically perfect in every way". Keep up the good work guys. :-)
The story, the atmospheric music and sfx along with brilliant performances from all involved make this a must have for all fans of the first Doctor and his team.
