Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

Marco Polo was an epic story when I first listened to it. Rather than Hartnell leading the charge he's simply swept along by history. At seven episodes it's long but rather than drag it's heels by repeating the same formula of escaping and being captured, etc, the journey from the roof of the world to Peking literally keeps the story moving.

My only gripe is the almost pantomime-esque of Marco's blindness to see what's really going on with Tegana's deceit, even right up until the final scene in the throne room.
