Viyran's everywhere and not one to hide from. We are back in London, with Molly now and the Doctor, and a Doctor who is far from impressed with Molly, who has taken in deserters from WW1, the Doctor informs Molly that her deserter is in fact a Independent Irish Republican solider. In the ensuing argument, Molly's eyes give her away, and the retro particles show themselves, with the Dr's suspicion raised the story is afoot. One of Molly's patients, has a hand that has become see-thru, another bizarre occurrence that has the Doctor even more beguiled about what is going on. There are the "Huntsman" as well who are working for another Doctor, and the chief surgeon, who is more than what it appears. They are performing "experiments" what is actually going on in London just post WW1. The Huntsman are looking out for deserters so they can experiment on these poor unfortunate souls. If you are unlikely they take you to the 'White Room' to extend their inhuman exploitations. McGann and Ruth Bradley are sparking off each other in this episode of the Dark Eye's release. In fact I would go as far to say that Bradley steals the show on each and every turn in this exciting release. Cracking second installment in this release.

Now this is the beginning of the Dark Eyes 2 story from the Doctors perpestive with him and Molly reuniting in his Baker Street house (Fugitives) on the final days of the Great War. Appart from their team coming back together (gotta love Ruth and her Irish accent), Mollys eyes turning dark again and she leaving David to take care of the house, this was probably the weakest part of DE2. In it self its a good story, sort of Main Range stuff and since Alan Barnes didnt wrote for the series anymore, after Fitton and Dorney (who got obliterated during the first part) got full creative control over it. I love the Viyrans as a monster and maybe in the future theres a possibilitie to connect that virus with the Weeping Angels zapping people back in time by touch...My idea, but well see...

This story starts in quite interesting way as the Doctor arrives to find Molly has let an armed "Cousin" (Irish person not related by Blood) with criminal intention take up refuge in his house leading to the Doctor getting very angry. Then, the mystery starts as Molly's dark eyes (which had become normal after the end of the first Dark Eyes)return without any explanation (other than we need justification for the Title.)

This then sets the Doctor on some unethical experiments which leads the Doctor to an old alien foe. (Given what happened at the end of their last encounter where the Doctor's memory was wiped by them, I was little confused how he managed to even have a memory of them.) We get a virus that can raise people from the dead, ambition, espionage, and Armistice Day. The story could have used a lot more focus.

Still, there's much to like about, "The White Room." The first scenes at the house are a lot of fun. Particularly as the Doctor keeps asking Molly how she doesn't know about all the secret rooms in his house despite having lived there a long time. Molly O'Sullivan continues to be a wonderful and likable companion. She can be very tough, but she's also a very caring and compassionate person who's always trying to find ways to help others.She's exactly the type of person the Doctor needs, and even though the story was a bit unfocused, her return was a big highlight.
