Interesting concept by creating a prequel to supplement the established first episode of Who, and explore what happened before, and in some respects up-to the point in which Susan arrives as a student at the Coal Hill School. There is a gentleness about this story, nothing too horrific happens apart from a wonderfully articulate storyline that gets painted by Carole-Ann in only the way she can, playing the part of Susan, the granddaughter of the Doctor. We get to listen to the Doctor and Susan making their escape from Gallifrey, we get an insight into the reasons why the Doctor needs to leave, but moreover we also get to learn that a realisation at this time, is that they are going never to return. Never again will they see their home. The story as the fabulous Terry Molloy in here as well, he plays a sort of jobs worth, Gallifrian Tardis tech. The story is gone in a flash, with just over 1 hour of adventure for the listener, but, you know what that is just enough time for us to get the feel of this, and as ever it comes out trumps in both is narration and acting, as a quaint little prequel Doctor Who gem. Worth a listen.
