A quality story, also showing off the acting talents of Carole-Ann to the full. The story is simple, but that does not mean it lacks any quality, in fact that is certainly part of the charm of the whole proceedings. The story, takes us on a journey through recall, recall that is told to us via spirit guide, a medium, which as anyone who is familiar with Who will know is quite at odds with the ethos and belief systems that the Doctor has, or indeed instils into others who are his companions or those who tag along. However the premises by Rayner is used to good effect here, as it allows the story in recall to be told, with great compassion and creates a distance between the now and then. It also demonstrates the way in which we can all be slightly misled and deceived by perhaps out own thoughts and conceptions along the way. The story has a gentle pace, and at no time do we really fear for anyone lives as we may have done in previous Who stories. But we what we do get out of this is perspective. That travelling with the Doctor, that he is never far away from Death.
Interesting with a strange charm.
