The Night of 1000 Stars: This is an attempt to do something different that doesn't quite come off. Set in a single room with four characters played by four consummate actors, given the right script this could shine. Unfortunately, this is a Whodunit, which means that it is solely reliant on one twist, and once you know the answer there is little reason to revisit this one. It also has two of the most unconvincing fights I have heard. The opening episode of this series only set up the series story arc in the last ten minutes, while this one just ignores it all together. Our heroes seem to be in some kind of homeless limbo. Not only is it apropos of nothing but it also has no lasting consequences for the characters, except they all go away feeling they have learned something. The characters spend a large amount of time narrating past events from their lives and arguing. George's revelation is the most poignant, and would have made a great episode itself but instead we got this?

Jago, Litefoot, Ellie, and Leela find themselves trapped in a room hiding from a monster waiting without---a monster called remorse.

Night of 1000 Stars follows on Series 6's encounter with Sigmund Freud with a very deep psychological story that plumbs the background of these very familiar characters' backgrounds and eventually turns them against each other. It's very meaty material and the cast handles it wonderfully. And the effect of being trapped in the room is wonderfully claustrophobic.

Overall, this is a very mesmerizing and well-done hour.

This is compelling stuff, a four-handed tale showcasing Jago, Litefoot, Ellie Higson and the visiting Leela who are trapped in a room together whilst a monster rampages outside the door.

This story has almost a 'truth or dare' feel to it, as each of the trapped characters share their memories, giving the listener an opportunity to understand more about each character's history, experiences and motivation.

The quality of the acting and the script carries this simple yet compulsive tale. It holds your attention right to the end.

On first listen, I didn't like this episode, however on the third listen, I found it an enjoyable romp, however, you definitely need to listen as the story is told in flash back from each of the characters. The episode takes stance of a night in due to Jago and Litefoot not being able to venture out due their warrant for arrest. Without giving too much away, the story evolves around each of the main characters, telling a tale in the style of a musical hall act. The real twist in the story, is introduction of a monster, that most of us have probably had visit them that of Remorse! Listen out for the clues early on in the story if you have the sort mind that like to work out who dun nit or in this case a who is it.....

Well worth a listen, and on counter reflection a little breather from the main story arc of this series of stories of Jago and Litefoot.
