Warlock’s Cross (#244)

Big Finish Main Range

This story is far sadder and more poignant than I expected from the title, to be honest. Daniel Hopkins is a corrupted and sad figure in the Doctor Who universe, no longer someone who can be redeemed, it appears. I’m not sure if the Doctor will continue to try but he now has Elizabeth Klein instead. She has been fully redeemed and is fantastic in every story where she shows up! She has that dark undercurrent, just waiting to come out. But instead, she manages to bring forth the truth and assist in restoring the peace, as it were. Colonel McKenna is the rather underhanded wild card in this story and his paranoia is played extremely well. I was surprised and delighted by this story, in all of its mood swings.

Sylvester McCoy(The Doctor),Tracey Childs(Klein),Blake Harrison(Daniel Hopkins),Genevieve Gaunt(Linda Maxwell),Richard Gibson(Colonel McKenna),Tom Milligan(Gregory Lord),Russ Bain(Lieutenant Colonel Lewis Price). Other parts played by members of the cast.
