I liked this episode. It seesm to be fairly original - although I have not read every story ever written, so I am not sure. My problem with it is that the author seems to have tried to write a story "for the ages", along the lines of Ulysses or The Wizard of Oz, in that the young girl takes a walk in which she meets various men (all played by the same actor) who try to separate her from her doll in one way or another.

It's a real oddity but I'd listen to it two or three times more ... 4 out of 5.


Hi Alan,
Thanks for your comment. I posted this episode a long time ago--way, way back when I first started this website. So, maybe I was too hard on "The Doll" back then. I'll have to listen to it again and give it another chance!-- Best, Christine


Just heard The Doll on When Radio Was, I found the girl and other charecters fun but Dad was kind of dumb. Tells the girl to leave the table then to stay and finish eating than yells to go again and take the doll. Well she already said she would never leave the doll. Just weird but that's what I think I like about it.
