Hornets' Nest is an audio play in five episodes based on the long-running British science fiction television series Doctor Who. It is written by Paul Magrs.

It was released on five CDs by BBC Audiobooks between September and December 2009. They feature multiple actors, but all five episodes contain some degree of narration by different characters. released 3 September 2009).

The Circus of Doom feels like a halfway house in the Hornet’s Nest series and I hope that this is merely a blip as the tension was .

A lifelong Doctor Who fan, Cameron has also written two books, The Who’s Who of Doctor Who and Doctor Who: The Big Book of Lists, and directed a film all about Doctor Who fans throughout the years, Who’s Changing - An Adventure In Time With Fans.

The circus has come to town - and so has the Doctor! Watching the parade pass by in 1832, he finds the people of Blandford strangely drawn towards the garish big top, and knows that something is terribly wrong. The only thing to do is pay a visit. Meanwhile Adam Farrow finds his sister caught up with the circus and its sinister ringmaster. What is behind Antonio's almost hypnotic power, and how is it connected with an event in the Doctor's future? Seized by clowns and forced into the centre of the ring, the Doctor encounters the fiercest of all circus acts. Yet something much more terrifying lurks in the wings - and the sound it makes is horribly familiar. Lives will be lost before the circus moves on - and the Doctor will face his own doom on the high wire. With Tom Baker as the Doctor, Richard Franklin as Mike Yates, Susie Riddell as Sally, Michael Maloney as Farrow, Jilly Bond as Francesca and Stephen Thorne as Antonio, "The Circus of Doom" is the third of five linked stories written by the acclaimed Paul Magrs. '...a cracking, mystifying and frankly weird tale' - "Chichester Observer". '...Baker delivers the drama and intensity that you recognise from the Forth Doctor of old' - "Doctor Who Magazine".
It is the early 1980s and your crazy, protohipster uncle recommends that you watch this far out sci-fi show on PBS called Doctor Who. As it is made by the BBC, it is both naturally intellectual and humorous, though, he warns, you will have to use your imagination to overlook the dodgy special effects. This is no fancy Gil Gerard production.
You wisely follow the advice of your uncle and tune into The Ark in Space. What happens next is a blur, something akin to Dave Bowman falling into the Monolith, and when you come out of your sci-fi trance, you find yourself wearing a 14 foot long, multicolored scarf - and proudly.
Then, far too soon, it's all over. Tom Baker is gone from the show.
Now, I know you are a fan, you wouldn't have read this far without being one. You know what happens to the show next. We'll argue about that later. (If you, somehow, are not a fan, keep reading!)
But then it finally happens. Tom Baker returns to Doctor Who in The Hornets' Nest by Paul Magrs.
Here is the Monolith again, I'm ready to dive in.
These stories, I am happy to report, are frenetically imaginative, unobtrusively intellectual and conspicuously funny. There are macabre elements as well, as is befitting a Fourth Doctor adventure, and definitely some well placed homages and call backs to the TV show.
Doctor Who nerd advisory: official cannon continuity is extreme, you will be pleased.
As said elsewhere, don't expect a Big Finish style production. Expect Tom Baker to come into your living room to tell you, personally, about the further astonishing adventures of the Fourth Doctor.
Also, Richard Franklin as Captain Yates was an fantastic choice for a companion. As one of the most broken, psychically tortured people from the original series, the character driven dilemma facing Yates at the conclusion of this story was truly suspenseful.
Hornets' Nest is a marvelous TARDIS ride back to the past for fans and has enough TARDIS sized imagination to entertain (and possibly addict) even the uninitiated.
Don't wait for the translation*, buy it now.

*warning: English style English. You must hear Tom Baker say, "capillary." :)
Great addition to the Fourth Doctor's line. I was lucky enough to have my set signed by Richard Franklin!
For those who were willing to wait the Hornet's Nest Boxed Provides the fan with a saving and a nice box to keep the five parts of Tom Baker's Return to the Role of the Doctor.

For those expecting the Full Big Finish style audios al-la The Eight Truths (Doctor Who: The New Eighth Doctor Adventures) they will be a bit disappointed.

It does have the live interaction but it is more of a mixture of the Big finish regular line and the companion chronicles such as Doctor Who Empathy Games Chronicles CD (Dr Who Companion) style.

The First episode creates the frame for the Doctor as he invites Capt. Yates into the house where he is staying with his undead menagerie. The middle three episodes chronicle the Doctor's trips into the past and reduces the retired Captain to a background character as he encounters a plethora of situations where the hive is making their move.

We conclude with the final episode climaxing with the confrontation between the Queen of the Hive against The Doctor, Capt. Yates and the Doctor's Housekeeper Mrs. Wibbsey who he brought back from the 30's and plays excellent counterweight to the heavies.

The stories and the plots seem to improve as they go along although I thought the final resolution was too pat. Baker at first seems tentative but improves and really gets into the role again taking even the knowledge of his future incarnations in stride.

Franklin manages the role well, of course he had practice in The Magician's Oath (Doctor Who: The Companion Chronicles) to bring him back up to speed in the role. The individual actors and characters in the various spots do the trick making each part enjoyable.

The quality doesn't in my opinion match the best of the Big Finish line like The Bride of Peladon (Doctor Who) but it easily matches the majority of the line. If Baker chooses to do this again lets hope he goes whole hog.

What Doctor Who fan can be without it?
After four parts of having Mike Yates there to listen to the Doctor's stories of his battles with the Hornets, in 'Hive of Horror' we finally have Yates getting to be part of the action as the Doctor, Yates, and Mrs Wibbsey are shrunk down to the size of match heads to face the Queen of the hive in her hive in the mind of a stuffed Zebra.

This is actually my favorite of the five There's some wonderful dramatic tension between Yates and Wibbsey, with a lot of mistrust between the characters. The confrontation of the Queen was marvelous as was hr attempt to turn Yates. I really liked that this story gave Susan Jameson a chance to shine as Mrs. Wibbsey. This story left me wanting more for her as a companion and I'll eagerly look forward to the next serial featuring this character.

Overall, this succeeds and bringing a satisfying conclusion as well as giving Doctor's main co-stars something to do.
