Re: Currently working through the missing episode audios...

I though "The Crusade" was largely excellent, feeling like a pastiche of a lost Shakespeare play about Richard I and Saladin. But it suffered in the last episode due to the fact that the Doctor and his companions ultimately couldn't have any direct impact on historical events, so all the big, important historical drama of the first few episodes just fizzled out unresolved as we switched focus to the main characters escaping from their comparatively petty crises. That was perhaps an endemic problem of the historicals.
