Sausage Sandwiches and Augurs, bliss!!

Part 1 was so good, the second part had a lot to live up to, but could it?

No recap from last week's episode, we dive straight into the action. Romana has clung on to the rock face, and is forcing a foothold. The Doctor is tied up across a sacrificial alter at the Stone Circle by the BIDS and due to be sacrificed! De Vries pulls out a sacrificial dagger, but is stopped in his tracks...........by Professor Rumford on her bicycle. Panic sets in as he realises Romana is missing, so he calls in K-9 who discovers her. It becomes apparent that someone is abusing the segment and has the ability to change their appearance. The Doctor seeks answers from De Vries, but before he gets there, De Vries and his wife are killed by the site's stones. Romana learns about gorsydds from Professor Rumford. K-9 has sadly been wrecked but imparts the knowledge that the aggressors were 'globulin' deficient. We then see the Cailleach goddess with a bowl of blood feeding the stones with the sacrificed De Vries and his wife. The Doctor and Emilia search the dungeons of the house and discover that Vivian has lived on the site for centuries in different guises and deduce that she is the Cailleach. Romana is pushed into the Stone circle by Vivian and banished....

Mary Tamm is excellent, her reaction to Tom when he rescues her is really well executed, with fear across her face.

Lehmann and Engel continue to delight, and I can never watch this episode without craving Sausage Sandwiches!!!

The scene of the Caileach feeding the stones is straight out of Hammer horror, the music etc, it is stunningly observed.

The Stones of Blood continues in brilliant style, mix of Horror, humour and great acting

Another 10/10
