What Eiphel said. I found the story an engaging take on an alternative Doctor, and I agree Nicholas Courtney's performance is outstanding. I also loved Mark Gatiss as an alternative Master; you can tell he is having a criminal amount of fun. David Tennant's character is absolutely one-note, but that isn't his fault, because that's all he's given to play. That's really my only criticism of the script. And yet it's so much fun to hear Tennant's familiar voice, with his lovely natural accent. Unlike some other listeners I wish the producers had the nerve to REALLY let him curse. But I'm a reprobate.

I love the voice work of Mr. Warner & Mr. Courtney. I found the characterization of Colonel Brimmicombe-Wood to be off putting. I understand it is a different world but I found him to be really rude and looked for him to get his comeuppance. I enjoyed the Master getting the twist toward the end. The story could have been a little longer to round out some characterization. Super review by Eiphel. 8/10

Just a really good story. I didn't believe there would be enough to spread over almost two and a half hours, but there was more than enough. While it isn't quite as good as sympathy for the devil, which you don't have too have listened to before. Davros feels a but underused, but this story is really about the daleks and thals than him or even the doctor and the brig. For one of Nicolas Courtneys last enchors for Doctor who, let alone Big finish, he really excells himself. This version is different to the one we know and love but he is just as brilliant as that version, just more battlescared from his Unit years. The doctor himself is great. It feels like we've had this version around for ever, he just fits into it so well. David Warners performance is brilliant, an actor that should be back before the 50th anniversery year.
