I loved the complex, timey-wimey plot. I loved the interaction between Seven and Klein, a complex character who was well worth bringing back. As others have said, the scenes inside the camp rang false as Ace was allowed to get away with all sorts of behavior that never would have been tolerated in a real prison. I have to knock off points for that. However, I thought the scenes between Ace and Kurtz really felt wonderfully creepy. When David Tennant was yelling, he came off as a pretty standard Nazi, but when he dropped into quiet insinuation, there was a glimpse of the extravagantly talented actor who knocked Hamlet out of the park. He put so much menace into those scenes that I found myself wondering just how far Big Finish was going to let this rape-y character go.

This was clearly written by someone who knew the characters, and he found a clever way to play with the story being set shortly after they met. I figured out the mystery a beat or two before the heroes did, but that didn't detract from my enjoyment of the story at all. The guest actors did a good job with a difficult task, which I can't explain without giving away the plot.

I really liked the first 60% this story. The setting is evocative and spooky, and I was drawn into the mystery. The problem is that once the solution was revealed, I couldn't quite get my mind around it. Math isn't my strong suit, but I have a genius level IQ overall and I do understand the specific concept involved, yet how it applies to what happened in the story didn't make sense to me.

This story manages to tie up the horrendous mess the television series made of Peri's departure as a character in a way that actually works, not an easy feat. It is also a clever story in its own right, with several big twists, a lot of misdirection and a lot of big laughs. It's hard to say much more about the plot without revealing too much. If you like Nev Fountain's other work, you will like this as well. You have to have seen the Trial of a Timelord season from the classic series for this to make any sense at all.
