Cherub: Speak, damn your eyes!
[the Churchwarden dies]
Cherub: It wouldn't be like you to go to Davy Jones' silent, matey. So I reckon we best get on to that old fella and get our hooks into him.

The Doctor and his companions thoroughly entertain in a Jamaica Inn type adventure
21 August 2014 | by (South Wales, UK) – See all my reviews

Review of all 4 parts:

This 4 part adventure on the coast of 17th Century Cornwall takes Doctor Who into a Jamaica Inn type world with a tale of smuggling and hidden treasure.

It could easily be a high quality BBC production of that kind of period drama but with the exciting addition of the Doctor and his impressive new companions. They perform really well providing exactly what is required from companions creating added drama, action scenes and nice dialogue between them and the Doctor.

All the acting, the direction and the general values on show from the story and its presentation are of a high standard and it is just an entertaining romp with some colourful characters.
