This is one of those stories that actually regardless of whether it is a Who story or a story not, it is beautifully crafted, well written and superbly acted. Of course it massively helps when you have the likes of Dorney, writing such an eloquent story based on real life loss, drawing on this incredibly daunting part of anyone’s life with the loss in this instant of his father, has given us a wonderful and heartfelt spin on what we would if we could, have that last conver-sation with that special person who has passed. The way that Dorney has worked this into of all things a science fiction drama is rather well treated and exceptionally well crafted.
The Doctor is with Liv and with Helen Sinclair, again superbly acted by¬ Hattie Morahan and Nicola Walker, whom once again take on the roles of companions to No.8 Doctor, Paul McGann, whom as I have said previously, performs almost without trying, he is so slick. The story, does offer a tantalising insight in to what we know will become a real cracker of a story over these 4 episodes. The step up of pace is felt I thought at the end, with the need to stop what could potentially be a rather unfortunate ending to the universe, if not for the Doctor and his companions intervention. A real treat for the fans of Doom Coalition, and also a master-class in how to write, produce and cast and audio drama. What a fabulous start to this re-lease.
