The Way through the Woods - Dr Who at its best!

Oh what a wonderful yarn! A fabulous story, superbly read by Meera Syal. One could think of this as countless faerie stories from childhood rolled into one. Definitely a starring role for Amy in this one, with some very interesting supporting characters. And an interesting twist in the, rather foxy, tale! Fantastic!

inventive and convincing

McCormack uses folklore tropes- animal headed men, stolen people, roads that lead to faerie land, within the scifi of Doctor Who to create a inventive and convincing addition to the history of Amy, Rory and the Doctor. Gives a lovely sense of mystery to those wooded areas near towns and motorways that grow in darkness just beyond the streetlights.
