A big improvement on the last episode as this one becomes a base under siege story utilising the full cast. Everybody is busy, especially ORAQ.

The premise here is quite good, linking back to the original season and a return of The System.

Because the whole cast is used, it feels more like a B7 story, but that comes with a price: each character only gets a small amount of time and the plot itself is not as it should be. Parts are rushed.

I hate to say it, but this is the first B7 story I have given up on before the end.
As far as I could tell it had nothing to do with the boxset plot.

I love the way Cally has been portrayed by Big Finish. Jan Chapel has done some great work and her character has developed well, but this was an overload of the least interesting aspects of her character. Worse than that, it was essentially a solo story when the best that B7 offers is in character relationships.

The story is silly, the characters are silly and the Doctor is silly. It is very RTD.

It begins with Jackie with a friend and her daughter and then we add Rose to the mix and they all speak in very similar high pitched, excited voices that make it hard to follow.

Now, to be fair this is exactly the kind of silliness that RTD gave to 9 and 10 and there is nothing wrong with it. Just don't go in expecting a hard hitting science fiction drama.

My feeling with this release is that the first two episodes were too heavy on atmosphere and too light on plot. Certainly character and setting were well established, but the writer was so determined to "show" us that the story was spooky rather than "tell" us that the plot did not advance. There were long stretches of wandering around between key story reveals.

Then, when we reached the end of episode two, we have a major plot development that makes the story far more interesting and the cliff hanger leaves the listener asking what is going on.

Throughout the story, both Flip and Connie are eager to move on and get home. They both sound like the doctor has dragged them into one adventure too many. This adds to the tension of the episode. The problem is that the slow reveal of story means that we are a long way into the story before the Doctor has motivation to investigate. The story does become good, but it takes time to get there.
