This story was great, right up to the final episode...and then it turned very disappointing.

Perfect blend of humor & mystery, sprinkle in some science fiction, and great humorous acting, and you have a superb story.

Continuing from Persuasion, this story is funnier and continues the plotline from the previous story.

The Persuasion machine and it's inventor is up for auction, with some fine acting performances by the supporting cast, including Garandel, and Siv, and the action that Will gets into, I really enjoyed the story.

The sound effects were all right, not the best, but I could understand most of the story, the Sontarans were a threat, which surprised me, because they started the story off as comic relief. A couple of lines about the swagger stick had me belling laughing. And in the extra interviews Dan Starkey gave a lot of credit to the original actor playing the Linx and Styre, and by the way, you would never know Starkey played all the Sontarans if they hadn't have told you so.

Klein becoming more like 7 is apparent in the later scenes of this story, as she lies to Will about Siv's fate. I didn't see that fate coming, so even I can be surprised from time to time, though the scene was rather anti-climatic, she could have died better.

Now onto the daleks.

This is 7 nearing the end of his time, at least he thinks he is. With Klein working for Unit, basically giving Will Arrowsmith his walking papers just as they encounter the "umbrella man" this story starts off great, and proceeds to go downhill from there.

Will Arrowsmith may be the best thing about this story. I really enjoyed the character, and he played of Klein very well. The idea for the Persuasion machine was clever, but not nearly gone into depth enough to tell us how this could have been created by a human during the 1940's. For as the trilogy continues, you find out, this creator was no where near as smart as Einstein, thus the plotline really suffers. As it does with the creation of a new pair of enemies for 7, which he somehow locks away in a pocket universe of the tardis, which reminds me of the Pirate Planet and how the captain kept the planets reduced in size, and now how does the doctor, even 7, rationalize his actions.

As I could barely make out many of the pre openings scenes, due to some bad sound editing, it really hampered my appeal of the overall ratings. Just make sure you listen to the post credit scene.

Though, you can listen to this trilogy as a stand alone, knowing Klein's past all the way from Colditz, and especially thru the trilogy started in A Thousand Tiny Wings, and concluding with The Architechs of History, really makes it a lot more enjoyable.
