The Doctor and Ace land on a British ship during World War II. This is probably one of Sophia Alred's better performances as a reader. She shows a very strong grasp of the Seventh Doctor. Beyond that, it's an okay naval adventure with the Seventh Doctor and Ace being there. It'll hold your attention while listening to it, but it's pretty easily forgotten.

Sophie Aldred, takes us on a rather nautical jaunty tale, where she acts in a rather trait Scottish accent the parts that are the Doctor, although she has not got the vocal talents of Peter, or William R, it being the obvious as she is a women portraying a man's part, I for one would think it might have been better her not trying to make her voice appear to be a male role but just to further narrate the story in her own tones. Ok that moan out of the way. The story is a tale very much as referenced in the story itself, like the those B&W films of the early 50's and early 60's normally made by RANK or some such other British Film company, and normally shown on BBC2 on a Saturday afternoon just before the tea-time scores from the Football. Right reminiscence of the hour out of the way. The Doctor and ACE are cast aboard a ship on the Baltic convoys deep in the second World War. The Doctor fights his overwhelming conscious over intervention and pafisist beliefs, whilst ACE is cast a drift to resuce some salty sailors. It is Boys own Adventure stuff at it's best, and, fair play to Sophie she conveys, the emotions required to deliver a cracking little 30 minute 'Who-esque' tale.
