When the TARDIS materializes in medieval Worcester, the Doctor finds the city seemingly deserted. He soon discovers its population is living in a state of terror, afraid to leave their homes after dark, for fear of meeting their doom at the hands of the legendary Devil's Huntsman. And, after a terrifying encounter with a deadly Krillitane, the Doctor realizes the city has good reason to be scared!

So many books, so little time...
A good story and an excellent reading by Will Thorp. His character voices are generally good and reasonably distinctive, and his Doctor is not at all bad - he's captured a lot of David Tennant's vocal 'ticks' and it works well.
"Not the best narrator for the story, but still good."
The story was very good, and the narrator would have been great on any other tale... but he couldn't do credit to the Doctor's persona. Otherwise, it was as great as I've come to expect from Doctor Who.
"Science and History fiction combined."
Great story. The tenth Doctor is still my favorite Doctor. He and two temporary companions get into many hi jinks in the twelve century England. Fighting a intergalactic gangster and a hord of shape hanging monsters. Another great story.
