This is probably the single most accomplished Who Audio adventure drama, that I have listened too, in a very very long time, it just about ticks every single box, for action, and for down right blow you mind action adventure. So suited is McGann to this almost cinematic quality of the production, then, it stands head and shoulders above almost all of the stories gone before from the Dark Eyes box sets. We catch up with the Doctor, who has raced off in his TARDIS to a further point in time but on the same time line, crashing, and smashing into future Moscow, Russia, Earth. He is not well however he is suffering from Time Lag, and is taken in by the Daleks who control everything, they take the confused Dr to a nearby medical facility, where there just so happens to be a Irish nurse assisting, has the Doctor found Molly at last.
We are now faced with a world under the control of the Daleks. Except theses Daleks are being mass produced with the genic material from anything that the Daleks and there architect The Master can lay there grubby little stalk on, and that includes Sontarons! The whole world as been turned into one big replication factory for the Daleks. The big question is how can the Doctor change the future or put back the world on to it's right path, were does Molly fit into all of this, as she surely does. Oh boy, oh boy!, this is just so good it is not worth me doing a real in depth review. I will focus on one thing, McGann effortless and without equal, MacQueen so, so, bizarrely excellent and left of center for the part of the Master it is scarcely good. Nicola Walker is just spot on, in fact, as companion goes, she is up there with Maggie Stables and Lalla Ward, and the lovely Louise Jameson. This is setting things up for a wonderful finale.
