Possibly the best War Doctor story. I've been the biggest fan of Leela, but this story absolutely sold her. Louise Jameson gives what may be her best performance ever as the character, and certainly the most emotionally raw. The surprise villans of the piece are a really cool concept, well-acted and fleshed out, and I really hope they make another appearance someday. The sound design was also great. I also found this to be my favorite performance of Ollistra so far, a character I was never really on board with until now. As one of Sir John Hurt's last performances as the Doctor, it's possibly his best.

The concluding story of the War Doctor era finds the Daleks' ultimate weapon released in the form of an enigma that leads to another dimension. This is a great high concept story that works with fascinating inter-dimensional creatures being forced into the Time War. All the principal actors turn in superb performances, I love how Leela plays off Ollistra and her nickname for the Cardinal Ollistra.

The story makes a great conclusion to the War Doctor's story arc. No, he hasn't become a monster in our eyes. He never would be or will be in the eyes of the audience, but he is one in his own eyes and he's part of a race of monster warriors. And by the end of the story, he's made the conclusion that will lead to him stealing the moment to use in, "Day of the Doctor."

The middle story in this box set takes place as the Time Lords are desperate for a victory. Their best hope is the mysterious Lady of Obsidian and the Doctor goes searching for her with the Daleks on his heels and enters a dangerous nebula where something, perhaps even worse than the Daleks awaits him.

This story once again brings to life the sort of horrors of the Time War that the Tenth Doctor talked about in the End of Time. It also brings Leela into the Time War, although she has a terrible affliction which is yet another example of a horror of the war.

The story has some superb concepts and some good character moments as well. I thought Cardinal Ollistra's desperate gambit against the Daleks showed another side to the character. Louise Jameson was superb. The story is a bit of a tonal shift, but I think the Series has overall been pretty grim, and it needs a few stories that have more positive moments to create a good contrast, so we feel emotional impact. Overall, this was a very strong second part.

Pretty Lies begins shortly after the third War Doctor set ended with the War Doctor and Cardinal Olistra having put into a life capsule as an attempt to appease the Daleks which doesn’t go well. They then crash land on a planet where their joined by a time travelling war correspondent as they prepare the population for the coming Dalek invasion.

Overall, this story is exactly the sort of story I expected from the War Doctor series, with high quality action, some great war twists. The reporter adds just a touch of comedy. Yet, the story never loses touch with the tragedy of war or the Doctor’s revulsion at the idea that his actions in the War might make him hero. Overall, this is a solid and impressive start to the final War Doctor box set.
