Lovely. Intimate and suspenseful. Duncan Wisbey differentiates between each character with little differences that go a long way in making this short story feel fuller.

A lovely story. McCoy and Aldred feel so right in their characters yet different enough that this story really feels like a part of the new adventures novels, separate from the TV series. The music and sound design are top notch. Everyone else is totally believable in their roles. Carol Ann Ford has a delightful cameo and McCoy gets to try his hand at a familiar and famous speach. Glad I picked this one up!

Wow. A fantastic story all around. Brilliant writing, Alex Kingston still commands, Peter Davison turns in great performance(s), and Frances Barber and Nina Toussant-White are even better than they were on TV, oozing sincerity and drive. Sound design is great as well. This story is just non-stop fun.

This story made me really feel like these new versions of the first companions were a team. David Bradley seemed more energetic than in his first box set. Some of his lines seemed to channel an aged Tennant or a more aristocratic Capaldi. We really get a sense that this Doctor hasn't been saving worlds for very long, he sometimes finds himself at a loss. Claudia Grant's performance as Susan feels very true to Carol Ann Ford in the early days and Jemma Powell as Barbara is eerily accurate as always. Jamie Glover projects emotional honesty and a fierce protectiveness as Ian. The writing is quite fun, although it can sometimes get a bit repetitive, and it still feels weird to hear actors today speaking dialogue in the style of a 60s sci-fi series. Still, this story sold me on the recast box sets after feeling apathetic towards the first one.
