The Doctor and Romana I are on holiday on the French Riviera in 1929, and become aware of strange alien goings-on.

I believe that this is the first Companion Chronicle to feature only one voice actor, rather than two, but I can't actually say that I noticed, until it was brought up in the extras.

The plot on this one doesn't really stand out, but it's a great pleasure to hear Mary Tamm in the role of Romana again. The setting and characters (mostly a bunch of semi-eccentric wealthy socialites) m

This Companion Chronicle is performed completely solo by the late Mary Tamm who portrayed the original (as far as we know) incarnation of Romana. It is delightful to hear her portrayal of Tom Baker as The Doctor as well as all of the other characters. It was easy to forget that it was one person and not multiple actors. Good story as well.

I must admit Mary Tamm's Romana always comes 2nd place to Lalla Ward's for me but I still enjoyed this. The 1920s with a bunch of posh people on the rivera was a perfect setting for her. This was part Agatha Christie part HP Lovecraft.

Mary Tamm going solo does a decently professional job of a rather lousy script involving alien goings-on in Antibes in 1929.

Very run-of-the-mill story but worth listening to for Mary Tamm's performance.
