This feels like a black and white adventure. It is very 60's. The kind of adventure Steven and Vicki would have found themselves in.

The setting is the dwarf planet Ceres, a bit before Steven's time. The Tardis crash lands in a small mining colony that evolves into a base under siege story.

There is not much more than that. This would be typical on the mid 60's so it feels like the era it belongs in and that feel is important. Steven does a great first doctor and the writer has presented him well.

Its a small cast, but not much meat on the story.

1st doctor, Stephen and Vicki
A great plot, makes a great story, this is one of those, the acting could have been a bit better, but the audio was great, and I would listen to it again, I loved the surprise ending, I kept looking for a ghost in the machine, and it was just a madman. Great, great listen.

A story that’s not without merit. There's a bit of mystery in Parts Two and Three, but the explanation given in the final episode is far from satisfying. The dialogue is a bit stilted and pedantic and below Big Finish’s normal standards. A good performance by Peter Perves and Maureen O’Brien, but otherwise forgettable.
