Evil is as evil does. It seemed to me that the Master was doing a Forest Gump by wandering through a series of significant events in twentieth century American history. Geoffrey Beevers was brilliant as ever and the atmosphere of the piece was first class. I did find the story lacking though.

As a follow up to Tales from the vault, we are instantly reintroduced to the main characters to get the show working. It works well, and probably works if you haven't heard Vault. There are a lot of references, but nothing critical. There is nothing wrong with it; a lot of it is excellent, it just never really grabbed me.
