Not sure why this has got such a comperatively low score. The aliens are truely alien and all the more interesting for it. All the characters come off the page very well and there is a great sense of danger throughout. A strong central idea, an evocative setting and good performances allround make this a powerful opening story for Circular Time.
Reviewer Says: No previous stories required.

I liked this more than many apparently. I thought the world it created was interesting and the disobedient Time Lord character was someone worth meeting. The twist at the end made me smile.

A solid tale highlighting how good these short stories can be. It could have been longer but I don't think there was any need, we managed to get the whole story without any of the unnecessary padding.

This was a lot of fun, but I felt that it would have made a really cracking two-parter. 7/10
