An interesting little breadcrumb that teases more than introduces a new race and some plot points yet to come. The mysterious atmosphere and Nicola Bryant's performance sell the story more than the plot does. As an appetizer it works well but there's not much of substance on its own.

This is a muddled release with some interesting concepts but not enough time to express them. After years of teases and hints that there is more under the surface to C'rizz we finally get the big reveal and find out what secrets he has been carrying since we met him. The general plot is okay and there's a hell of a punch at the end but most of the rest is so deeply flawed that it's difficult to listen through to the good bit. C'rizz's faith is finally put into full view but the rushed pace of the plot leaves his actions feeling a little superficial and inconsequential until the feathers hit the fan. There's a strong sense that there are plot points that were intended to be spread across more stories to build up to this event that were condensed into one story to wrap things up. With the 8th Doctor's main range stories coming to a close maybe that's what happened. Ultimately in C'rizz's moment in the spotlight Charley manages to steal the show.

Memory Lane is a solid classic Who adventure. It's a little creepy and mysterious, a little exciting at parts, and mostly a fun romp through a strange world. Plus there's a bug eyed monster in there for good measure. The premise is interesting enough to set the story apart but compared to most of the tail end of 8 & Charley's run this is pretty cookie cutter stuff. And that's a bit refreshing.

Something Inside sees The Doctor reunite with his old steadfast companion amnesia. It's a pretty straightforward story of militarized psychics and a telepathy-consuming brain worm told in a roundabout way. The first 2 parts are slow as we try to unravel forgotten events and get a handle on the issues St hand. The memory loss schtick wears thin quickly as there is a lot of hemming and hawing about things recalled or not quite remembered. The plot picks up the pace in the 3rd part only to slow down to a drag in the final episode. There is a decent story here somewhere but good luck keeping your interest long enough to grasp hold of it. When it's moving along this is in a similar vein as some of the better 80's television stories. It's a shame it's so inconsistent.
