Big Finish - Son of the Dragon

Son of the Dragon by Steve Lyons, and directed by Barnaby Edwards.

Another quickie review for something I listened to ages ago. I believe this was cheap in a sale at some point. This is a purely historical story with the Fifth Doctor and Peri encountering the son of Vlad the Impaler. There are no science fiction or supernatural elements other than their arrival in the Tardis and in the tradition of Doctor Who historicals the events take place over weeks and months rather than days.

James Purefoy plays Vlad's son and Douglas Hodge is his opponent in battle Radhu. Both have great voices for a radio play and this all cracked along splendidly and I rather enjoyed it. Another 3.5 out of 5 star story.
