Muse of Fire review

Of December 2019’s two main range Doctor Who releases, Paul Magrs’s The Muse of Fire is far and away the most quirky. The idea of the Seventh Doctor, Ace, Hex, Iris Wildthyme, Panda and others might seem a lot for any story to handle, but rest assured Paul Magrs is up to his highest standards in The Muse of Fire.

This is a Sixth Doctor story that introduces the character of Iris Wildthyme to Big Finish. Iris was created by Paul Magrs in the Eighth Doctor Adventures novel The Scarlet Empress. Iris is played by Katy Manning (in this incarnation…
