The Master is going to use the Eminence and the Infinite Warriors in order to fulfill his goal of domination and control, Molly's biological alteration is the key to making this work. However there is one thing standing in the Master's way, the Doctor. This episode takes into the working of the evil master mind who essentially is the architect Prof. Markus Schriver, a mad, textbook Science Fiction Dr Frankenstein. Quite intriguingly in this episode we get a moment where the Doctor and the Master cast together, locked in the hold of a spacecraft of the mad Professor, the Doctor has already set the wheels in motion aboard the space station of the evil Prof by setting it to explode. Will the Doctor escape, or will he finally die, at least as he points out with the satisfying knowledge of the Master dying with him. Of course he won't but this story is building us towards an intriguing finale of this storyline.

The story begins with the Doctor confronting Professor Schrivner and trying to get him to abandon research that will unleash the Eminence on the Universe. When Schrivner refuses moral entreaties, the Doctor makes clear he's going to do whatever takes to stop him. The Doctor is done playing around.

The first thing the Doctor sets out to do is to sabotage a ship that's bringing him important supplies, but the Master tries to trap him on the doomed ship and the two end up trapped together. As the same time, Liv Chenka, the Master's lackey Sally Armstrong, and a mentally unstable Schrivner are locked in their own battle of wits.

This is a very rich, deep, and psychological story. It's hard to recall a time when the Doctor and the Master have engaged in such a lengthy conversation. The dialogue is clever and reflects the nature of their lengthy rivalry. Meanwhile, the scenes with Sally and Liv are strong and set up a pivotal and dramatic moment when both Sally and Liv face the possibility of eminent death.

It's a superb story that really delivers and sets the table final episode of Dark Eyes 3 quite nicely.

Up to this point I had never really warmed to Alex Macqueen's master, he was good and his storyline in The Death of Hope proved intriguing, but he still wasn't really the Master I love to hate. In this release, he was. The dual storyline of the Doctor/Master showdown and the Sally/Liv/Schriver event worked incredibly well. Overall I think this was the best story in Dark Eyes 3.
