Good Night Sweet Ladies picks up right where The Revolution left off with Benny searching for the missing Ace. Here she is dragged to crash on a planet with a woman named Claire, a guy called Steven and a Dalek. You would think that this would turn into a comedy like The Revolution, but it is anything but comedy. No Una McCormack makes her quarter of the Box an intense drama that sheds light on Benny's backstory for those who don't know and has a beautifully moving climax. It also knows how to make the Doctor and Ace's presence known without them being in the actual story with Ace leaving clues about her whereabouts for Benny to follow and the Doctor just getting a closing narration.

The supporting cast here is great with Sheila Reid playing Claire giving a moving performance with Lisa Bowerman. Reid steals the show with another greatly executed twist as to whom Claire is.

Sadly the story is a bit of a drag in the middle with the character of Steven being a red herring that just turned out to be a normal human being so just know that it gets really boring in these bits.
