I needn’t have worried. The story is pitched perfectly with the extra time spent adding further layers to the characters by giving insights into their thoughts in a way that just wouldn’t work in the television version. Nerys Hughes quickly dispelled any concerns I may have had; reading the story with enthusiasm and making each character stand out with distinctive accents. The sound effects are particularly effective, complimenting the narrative without being over the top.
The story itself isn’t generally regarded to be one of the classics but if you have any doubts don’t let them stay your hand, this one is a bit of a hidden gem. (Posted on 29 August 2012)

As the sleepy English village of Little Hodcombe prepares for the re-enactment of a Civil War battle, Tegan and the Doctor arrive looking for her grandfather. But her grandfather is missing and preparations for the battle are turning sinister.
While local schoolteacher, Jane Hampden desperately tries to stop the games, the Doctor and Tegan are captured by local landowner, Sir George Hutchinson.
This is a classic Doctor Who adventure at its spine chilling best. Can Jane shake the villagers from their blind trust in Hutchinson and free them from certain death? And, when the Doctor discovers ghosts haunting the church, is he ready to fight the ancient alien mind hidden in a secret passage?
This audio dramatisation has been executed brilliantly by the same writer who wrote the original The Awakening TV episodes, Eric Pringle. An award-winning writer for TV and radio, Pringle’s skilful novelisation creates a story that will satisfy the most die-hard Doctor Who fans.
Listeners may recognise the mellifluous tones of Nerys Hughes’ voice, who narrates this chilling tale. A regular voice-over artist, Hughes is no stranger to Doctor Who. Fans of the show may well recall her appearance as the scientist Todd, in the 1982 Doctor Who episode ‘Kinda’.
