Part One of the two part finale sets up the story extremely well. The plot involves Lucie arriving at her job where nothing is as it seems and the Doctor coming to rescue her. The story is reminiscent of The Invasion with a company controlled by a cold calculating businessman who isn't entirely human. What makes this different from that story is that the Cybermen aren't working with the company but attacking it. The Doctor's reaction to the Cybermen's reveal is great. The cast is on top form bringing the office setting to life with a PA announcing things every so often. This story also grows in enjoyment because it really feels like a complete story like Frontier in Space was.

Lucie Miller awakes to find herself with the Head Hunter in an office and she starts to think her Adventures with the Doctor were just a dream. Meanwhile, the Doctor is sent by the Time Lords with a time ring to find her. While the office uses lots of language and style that will be familiar anyone who worked in an office (or who never bothered to get a job but watched office-related shows on television), but the purpose of the office was far different.

In some ways, the story line calls to mind the Second Doctor's final story, "War Games" with a different twist. It's a great concept that's well realized. And when the Doctor tries to stop it, that's when things get really bad...

While it is mostly a set-up for the next episode, the premise of an office environment hiding something very different is funny, intriguing and weird enough to be enjoyable. McGann has a lot of fun and Smith does a good job doing Lucie style Doctoring.

Very enjoyable story that I don't want to spoil too much that nicely sets up the next story.

HUMAN RESOURCES PT 1 is a fun romp. With tongue firmly planted in cheek Eddie Robson tells a delicious story of a corporate office that's actually... Well, I won't give it away, but for anyone who's had a job in the corporate world, they'll definitely be able to relate to the characters, the environment, and the attitudes. Fun stuff and a unique script for the DOCTOR WHO universe.

The downside is that this is only the first half of the story (to be followed up by HUMAN RESOURCES PT 2! Go figure.). While the mystery takes its time to unravel, there's really not much rise and fall to the drama. Meaning that dramatically, the action is rather monotone for most of the adventure until the climax.

I've rated this story an 8, mainly because although the mystery DOES unravel, not much else happens. I'm wondering how I would rate it after a second listen now that I know the secret. Sadly, I don't expect it to hold up to repeated listens.

Great work though and certainly worth the price of the download.
