I guess if the two televised Mara hadn’t been firmly implanted in my brain even forgiving the original puppet snake ,later improved on by CGI version I would have felt let down by this,but it’s a different take The Mara is still a formidable force.We get a society firmly evolved technologically unlike what we see in Kinda Loka or Manussa.It’s a brave step to take with it and all the cast are excellent.Peter and Nyssa play slightly different to type and seem to enjoy doing It.For me the sheep thing was a bit much but I went with it.Is it a standout amongst the MARA stories definitely not.I like the religious/spiritual mumbo jumbo of the original tales but I do enjoy listening to it....we deserve a McGann take on it with Helen as the Maras victim am sure she would have fun with that.
It’s certainly not the best story Marc Platt has to offer but it’s a lot of fun seeing Peter Davison go all out as an evil Fifth Doctor.
Ffffffffffffffffffffff-- guess I need to add this one to my wishlist.
I've compiled all of my Big Finishes purchases into a single massive document, alongside those on my wishlist (bolded, right-justified). Check it out to see what I've already listened to (or soon will), or to recommend me something new to listen to!
Apologies in perpetuity for my many typos (FUAC) and poor memory.
