An excellent start to the second box set. I preferred this story to all of those in the previous release. Dorney once again delivers and John Hurt seems more comfortable in the role now.

This one kicks the story complexity up a notch or two from the first War Doctor set and quite right too. Love the technomancer business going on in this and to throw David Warner in there with John Hurt and Jacqueline Pearce, Brillitant! I'd give this a 10+ for acting if I could.

Legion of the Lost begins by pushing us into new territory as the Doctor thwarts the Time Lord's attempts to acquire the Annihlator, a weapon held by the Daleks and wanted by the Time Lords only to discover the Time Lords are working on something far more ambitious-teaming up with a group of wizards with an advanced science that operates like magic.

The story brims with brilliant concepts and intriguing ideas and great moral dilemmas over how far is too far. For the first time in the War Doctor series we're taken to the heart of the Time War and hear what the Time Lords to do to win it. David Warner does a superb job as the villain and plays very well off John Hurt, and Zoe Tapper does a wonderful job playing Collis, a reluctant warrior who is resurrected. Overall, this is a very solid and meaty script to start this box set.

We start box set 2 with the War Doctor doing battle with the Daleks, assisted in his exploits by another Gallifrian, however, she is a the lower ranks of the army, and in her own words, as never lived. This is her moment of glory, as they are both involved in the destruction of a weapon, of such dire consequence, the weapon can wipe out races a genocide nuke, it is down to the War Doctor and his intrepid charge to rid the universe of this, as the Daleks will surely put it to no good use. However in the pursuant of the end game, the Doctor. We get to meet the "Technomancers" a new alien race that combine magic with technology, or as I like to think of the precursor to Apple. However, the Technomancers are the servants of the "horned ones" I cannot help but in my mind think that there is an element of Hammer House of Horror here. However, the picture that is painted by Dorney is superb. Warner playing the head honcho of the Techonomancers, as sold the dream to the Timecards where by he can basically bring back from the dead their killed Gallifrian's so that they continue to fight in the time war. However as you can imagine, this is not a free lunch scenario, and, what has befell the Doctor assistant at the beginning of this story, slowly unravels, as she too is bought back to life, before the Doctors eyes, a person whom he basically had to kill in order to escape. This is not right, and the Doctor, as to put things right, for this is so morally wrong. Warner is excellent putting in the sort of thespian performance of someone who has done that, bought the T-Shirt he is very much the malevolent villain, you can almost feel that he has a that sort of villainous laugh. The story material is also superb, and in the hands of Hurt there is not one beat missed, I do like the juxtaposition of the Doctor not wanting to be called the Doctor as he is so opposed to his previous in carnations of the peace loving, caring timecard, when actually although accounting for the odd death, he ultimately is still striving for the same end. This kicks of the box set wonderfully and as opposed to the first outing, this is more of a three part story arch over the instalments as opposed to it being stand alone outing for Hurt to rattle his raspy sabre like tones.
