4.4 - The Mega

"This is a warning. Your aggression cannot go unchecked. The West must disarm. We will make you disarm."

When an assassination follows the first demonstration of a deadly new weapon, it appears that an alien race has fired the opening salvo in a new war – a war… for peace.

But is that truly their intent? The Doctor is unsure. The answer lies deep in the heart of a d... (more)

This is a substantial rewrite and alteration to a Lost Story, to get around licensing and clearance issues.

As a result, whatever one may make of the "Stream" character (hint: it's an anagram) who is never identified, and the use of Tractators presumably hundreds of millions of years before their apparent home time, overall the framing device makes it interesting, and there's nothing wrong with the story. The plot however, makes not too much sense. You are presented with its framework, you accept it or you don't.

One for completists.

An excellent story, one of the legendary Lost Stories, this one having been rehearsal ready and therefore not a mere outline, sketch or bare bones treatment. This maturity of script shows through in spades, because there is plenty going on here, none of the typical padding, and none of the pointless discursions BF sometimes has to fill a story in with.

The accents here range from standard Pigbinese medieval "English" - very mild Pigbin Josh levels in this case thank the stars - to the evil EastEnders from the spaceship Icarus.

A very good plot, awesome use of science fiction tropes, and some lovely acting. Nicola Bryant as Peri gets to act young but still let loose with some post-watershed very mild language - "hell!" etc.

This has a large cast, but it doesn't drown out the leads or the story, and it is a wonderful story to listen to in one big hit.

Recommended highly!

Point of Entry shouldn't drag - but it does. It shouldn't drop you out of following the story - but it does.

I think part of the problem is not the Elizabethan setting - which is excellent, or the lead performances - which are solid, but rather that the pacing is off. It drags due to slowness and the drama really needs some punchy dialogue and quick delivery, but somehow it grinds to a halt during the Walsingham encounter and loses consciousness completely shortly after.

It doesn't help that a scene with a rack is treated by the Doctor as "ho hum yawn" instead of loosing a blood curdling scream or even a trademark grunt of effort. Just - yawn. If he isn't scared or excited, why should we be?

Great ideas, poor ball handling skills.
