Well, that was a quirky little story, wasn't it? Sutton brings the tale to life with a myriad of voices and while the story is certainly a slight one, it is also a entertaining one. Pretty much a perfect example of what the range can be when it is humming along.
A fun story full of great writing and Sarah Sutton shows again how really excellent she is at these (ahem) unusual multi-voice stories (thinking back to last year's 'Mistpuddle Murders'.)
My only slight disappointment was I hoped the chicken would have something to say for itself so we could hear that voice too but it didn't cluck up the courage to speak...
I think the Doctor was having an off day - shouting 'witch' in muddy merrie England as a distraction and then being surprised when the locals got homicidal seemed out of character.
He should have known humans well enough to predict that!
An entertaining Short Trip which answered the second oldest question... The oldest question is presumably the one about the correct temporal sequencing of the chicken and its shelled embryonic stage, as mentioned in 'Rassilon's Big Scroll of Farm Animal Paradoxes' which the Doctor no doubt read as a Time Tot. It was probably to answer that question that the Gallifreyan pioneers built the very first TARDIS, and we all know what happened next...
