One of my favourite Dorian Gray audios to date, this audio takes a mundane premise usually reserved for fluff fanfiction - two characters swapping places - and plays it entirely for drama. This release doesn't have any monsters - though the actions of Mr. Gray and Mr. Moore could certainly be characterised as monstrous - and instead of wrestling with werewolves as in the last release, in this story Dorian wrestles with questions of nature versus nurture and how much our identities are dependent upon our circumstances. In many ways, this raises some of the same questions about morality's dependence on circumstance as Series Two's amazing The Immortal Game, albeit in a more subtle manner. This story that began as such great fun concludes with a sense of tragic inevitability, and in doing so brings both the worlds - Dorian's world and the ordinary world - together in a way that hauntingly echoes a certain Doctor Who quote: 'Some people live more in twenty years than others do in eighty. It's not the time that matters, it's the person.'
