Wow that was great. Cracking pace, great performances from Treloar and Manning and nicely quirky supporting characters. Feels like it captures the tone of the Pertwee era really well. Looking forward to hearing the rest.
I don't often download free first episodes because I like to have the choice to listen to the whole story if the mood takes me. I couldn't resist this though, and I'm glad I didn't. Putting aside how enjoyable the episode was, I had a smile on my face throughout because of Tim Treloar's terrific interpretation of The Third Doctor. As a recast, I can't imagine anyone better.
I'm only one episode in to The Transcendence of Ephos, and It's wonderful. I liked Treloar in the last volume, however he has improved so much. And the guest cast is marvelous. I just love Bernard Holly. I recognized that Portrait's voice almost immediately.
