A nice story. Well-written and scary in some places.

Set in the gap between season 7 and 8, the beginning of this story has Liz ask the question "Why did I decide to leave UNIT?" Although it doesn't directly answer that question by the end, it does give some hints through her characterization. The Third Doctor never encountered the Cybermen on TV, so if you ever really wanted to see that happen, this audio will fill in that gap. It also has some really good characterization for Liz, a good performance by Caroline John, and very creepy imagery. The only thing that lets it down is the cop-out ending. Overall, definitely worth listening to, and I would particularly recommend it to a fan of Liz or of the Cybermen as enemies.

As a fan of Liz Shaw I have to say I enjoyed this. The plot was simple with a twist that was ever so similar to Open After Hours.

Caroline John tells the story well. It begins mostly about her but then the Doctor and the UNIT team all join in. For the first season of CCs, its good. The series has a lot of development yet to do, but even the simple aspects of this works well.

Really didn't like this - a good performance from Caroline John lifts it from 1/5. Listen to Shadow of the Past instead - that's excellent
