It’s ‘Allo ‘Allo! meets that creepy theatre in Interview with a Vampire. But with goat dudes.
The Eighth Doctor and Lucie Miller are separated in this oddly time-and-space-UNspecific story set, specifically, in Nazi-occupied Paris.
Doc spends most of the episode being pursued by alleged Nazi officers straight out of ‘Allo ‘Allo!, and Lucie awakes to find herself an actress on stage in an anonymous, nondescript, Parisian theatre – which is bizarre, because they’d originally aimed the TARDIS at the Moulin Rouge and are thus clearly missing out on an obvious location to cement the Parisian element of this audiobook.
And meanwhile, the blanks are filled in by bleating goat people. Oh, hang on. And it’s called Scapegoat! I get it now…
In debating the merit of this audiobook, we did ask ourselves – and answer – a number of Whovian question, though, such as:
Some of the stars of The Scapegoat have appeared in the Whoniverse before. Behold Samantha Bond as Mrs Wormwood in The Sarah Jane Adventures…
…Clifford Rose as Rorvik in the Tom Baker serial Warrior’s Gate…
…and Christopher Fairbanks as Fenton in the Capaldi episode Flatline!
