A very well-written story that even put me in the mind-set of the regular monthly stories at times. However, there were so many plot strands running through the second episode that it did at times become slightly convoluted. However, that doesn't take away from a very interesting story, with a killer cliffhanger...

Timey-Wimey Factor: The Timey-Wimey factor is a rating on a 5 point scale as to how important Time or Time Travel is to the story. This rating is independent of a storys quality; a Timey-Wimey factor of 1 is not intrinsically better or worse than one of 5. Warning: explanations of a rating, and indeed the rating itself may be mildly spoilery.
4. Integral: Although there's no time travel or manipulation in the story, important mysteries and revelations in the story would not work if the main characters were not time travellers.

The story of how this lost story was found and produded was quite facinating. That alone gives you a sence of how we could easily have missed out on this story. It leaves you wondering what else was lost? and how can it be found?
I did feel that visuals were needed from time to time, but on the whole, its production in audio is good.
