Some time after Terminus the Doctor meets Nyssa one last time. Nyssa has settled down with a family but has been having dream of her father or the Master, Tegan and Adric. Are they dreams or psychic visions? Using advanced machinery Nyssa enters the Doctor dreams, where he is a normal man with a family. Perhaps reflecting unconscious desires? The Watcher returns. This is perhaps the most intelligently written; I don’t want to say anymore because in case I spoil something.

This is scarcely good in the execution of telling the tale, of the end of a life. In this case the Doctor's. A wonderful parody of winter as the end when partnered alongside the demise of life was quite well played out. The Doctor is portrayed in a much unfamiliar circumstance as a father figure, married, living in a domesticated circumstance on a farm. Only when Nyssa appears to the Doctor in a dream do we see the whole thing unravel like a ball of string, and the Doctor (expertly played by Peter as ever), come to reality of what really the parody of the farm, his wife, the children whom once where his companions, and Nyssa mean to him.

This was a touching conclusion to the four part drama, and I for one, thought that Peter, and Sarah gave stunningly impressive performances in this concluding part. Peter especially portrays the Doctor as almost human in his failing, to prolong the time of his passing, and his regeneration, although here we see him mourning the Doctor he has become and grown to be, not at the fact that he will return due to his genetics.

Nice way to end this and I think that the whole release would stand well to re-listen without doubt.

I found this a total surprise; I did NOT see the ending coming. I actually gasped, then I had to pull the car over so I could safely burst into tears. You will not remotely understand it without having seen critical episodes of the TV series, but I suspect anyone listening to these audios has seen them. (I won't tell you which episodes because that would totally give it away.) Yes, it's continuity porn, but it's brilliant continuity porn. Peter Davison and Sarah Sutton give very heartfelt performances and I was profoundly moved, to an extent that shocked me. If you are a fan of Davison's Doctor you need to get this one. I have listened to it three times and I've cried three times. Paul Cornell obviously has my number, since "Father's Day" and "Human Nature" always make me cry, too. In a good way.

This is a great, fun story, although one very much for the fans with its heavy continuity. The thing that hampers that enjoyment is the feel of a great scene in Who history being slightly trodden on. 7/10 (But a high 7.)
