The Doctor, Ace, and Hex find themselves at a Scottish castle full of guilt-ridden academics as well as buried secrets.

This is a very solid outing. In style, it's a classic old house Horror mystery that has some real creepy and haunting moments. The guest cast performs quite nicely particularly Lizzy Hopely as Sue.

Both companions were solid. Hex showed some new competence and Ace seemed to find a good balance. Her, "Call me McShane" era hadn't quite worked. I like how she worked her name into her introduction but still was called Ace. It shows her as an adult rather than trying to be an adult.

While this is a fairly standard sci-fi Horror story, it's quite enjoyable and well put together for what it is.

Truly a case of "don't believe the hype". I had heard this to be one of the best of BF output. Hell no it isn't. All the guest cast gave disinterested unconvincing clichéd performances with the Deacon being the worst. Having the Doctor spout supposedly scary cryptic statements instead of actual dialogue in episode one was hard to listen to as was the endless exposition and "what ifs"in the last part.

Definitely one of my favorite Big Finish stories - the acting is stupendous, and the plot is intriguing, but perhaps what deserves the most credit is the soundscape, creating a wonderful sense of terror. All in all, a good plot wrapped in even better acting and mechanics.

A genuinely unsettling atmosphere and an original take on the mechanics of time-travel make this an almost excellent horror-themed story. Unfortunately some muddled story-telling and increasingly soap-operatic revelations drag the score down. Still, overall it's one of the better 7th Dr stories.
