Liv Chenka, is back in the frame, traveling to the edge of the universe, suspended in stasis, 9 centuries of doing nothing. They come to terms with the current situations. After a shower a mummified corpse is found is he a tech, they start to find out who, and what the corpse was doing there. Liv Chenka is worried, why has she had dreams in cryo sleep. Back with the Dr and Molly, they lock on to a signal from the end of the universe. It is Lev Checka's ship. What ensues is the Infinite are afoot, and they have a vested interested in the ship, and where they are. The Doctor as to step in, and to stop what could be the undoing of the universe and allow the infinite the ability to take over once and for all. This was a wonderful setup, for the final installment in the second outing of the Dark Eyes boxset 2 also we are back on the grounds of good old fashioned Sci-Fi at last with the Doctor and his companion being thrust into space, and fighting what is fast becoming a dangerous and hard to defeat enemy. McGann pulls the trigger as ever, with not a heartbeat missed in his performance. all the conviction and emotions are there as they are always with him. Add to this we have the wondrous Ruth Bradley in support as Molly the whole third episode is a brimming with good stuff, and all that you want from Who and science fiction drama. Enjoyed immensely.

My first contact with a Matt Fitton story and when i finished it, it was at the time my favourite CD from the boxset. You can see it as a typical -space crew in trouble- story but for me its was amazing: The Doctor and Molly (after a set of adventures we dont know about) arrive at the edge of the universe where something its pushing his way back from the end of time, where its the only living entity remaing: The Eminence. His voice along with the twist about the industrial time travelling spy inside Livs conciousness were the highlights of the audio. And once again, when you hear the next one it just gives it one more ounce of value for the self contained plot and the overall arc.

The Dark Eyes 2 story really does begin to take off here as the Doctor and Molly land on a space ship with a crew that's been in cryosleep for 900 years. One of those on board is Medical Officer Liv Chenka who remembers the events of, "The Traitor." Because of this, she has the Doctor locked up, but soon everyone on board has far more to worry about as the Eminence makes themselves known.

In some ways, it's a Classic Doctor Who plot (with some resemblance to The Ark in Space), but it's a very well-executed story with a great mystery surrounding a dead body found on board and several great twists surrounding that. Overall, the first Matt Frition story in Dark Eyes really does work, helped by a great soundscape and solid performances from the regulars.

The third entry by Matt Fitton in the box set manages to up the ante as the Doctor and Molly finds themselves aboard the cryo-ship Orpheus where Liv Chenka and here crew were sent by unknown benefactor. Uneasy reunions aside, there's a greater evil set to become the only being in the universe (and for once its not the Daleks!): The Eminence (Seeds of War, the forthcoming Destroy the Infinite).

Fitton's script really delivers as it presents us with the Eminence's goal and the infinite warrior transformation that bring the horror up to 12 as the Doctor, Mollyand Live prevent the zombiefied enemy from infinit conquest. The story also makes clear of what happened in The Traitor hasn't happened yet for the Doctor while it did for Liv; she's still viewed as a a traitor while she sees him as one for helping them. What we'll learn in the next story will become very clear as to why. That and the ending....


More firepowered performances all around from the new TARDIS trio and David Sibley. Also bringing their A-game as well were Jo Castleton (Oh No It Isn't, Venus Mantrap} as the driven-submissive Kruger, Adrian MacKimder as Capt. Brock, Jacqueline King (Sylvia Noble to the New Series crowd) lending her voice as the ship's computrr and Ian Hallard as Kell. Willfredo Acosta surpassed himself with the music and sound design story by story. Last, but not least, the direction Nick Briggs makes for a strong production overall.

Time's Horizon's another homerun story from Fitton and as is the following story Eyes of the Master.
