Willkommen, bienvenue, welcome to the Theatre des Baroque!"

Oh, but if you think you’ve seen and heard all that Paris by night has to offer... the exotic sights of Le Moulin Rouge, perhaps, or the horror tricks of Le Grand Guignol... if you think nothing could cause your mouth to dry and your heart to pound... you're wrong.

I remember listening to this before -- one of the more gruesome and intense of the 8th Doctor/Lucie Miller series. Poor Lucie gets to go through travail after travail here -- one almost thinks she must be related to Ace -- and the sound designer demonstrates some chilling talent in building the soundstage. Still chilling on the second visit.
This entire thing reminded me of something, but I can't put my finger on it. It was a bit darker than we've seen in a while, and I really enjoyed that. It's a nice theater mystery that's not what it seems.

When Lucie woke up in the dressing room she reminded me a lot of Rose... Wait, that's it! The theater in Penny Dreadful - that's what I was picturing in my mind while listening to this.
This was very odd and quite dark. Set in Nazi occupied France there was a theatre run by Goat headed aliens where people were killed over and over for the entertainment of the masses. It was a claustrophobic story and at times the plot seemed too absurd to be believable. The Gestapo and the 1940s setting seemed very strange set with the theatre which seemed more in keeping with Anne Rice's Theatre de Vampire in the 19th century. It was well done just really strange.
Nicholas Whyte
"This is occupied Paris, but not as we know it; I kept on thinking of the line from Douglas Adams about the enormous mutant star goat, whose smaller cousins are running a theatre near the Moulin Rouge where the Doctor and Lucie find themselves performing. I listened to it twice and am not sure I quite understood it but I enjoyed it."
Christopher Buchanan
Different. Kinda odd. A little too far off on credulity but not bad. Not particularly to my taste but it was pretty decent.
Gruesome but memorable Dr. Who story
