The story features a solid performance from Alex Kingston as River Song, and also really gives Helen a chance to develop as she learns the truth about River Song but is sworn to keep it to secrecy. Overall, the story maintains a great sense of excitement, and of menace with a volcano threatening to blow a world apart and Liv engaged in a giant robot fight with the Eleven.

This is by no means a perfect story. When your primary guest character can't reveal himself to your lead character, it's a challenge. In addition, the Eleven seems to lack of the menace he showed his titular introduction story back in Doom Coalition 1, though he's certainly better than he was in the finale of the previous box set. What the Sonomancer succeeds in doing is telling an exciting tale and teasing what's ahead in future box sets and the magnitude and scope of what's ahead. Overall, not great, but this story did it's job quite well.

I thought that the last episode was rather good, it sort of did what all final episodes needs to do, tie things up and get closure. The problem is we have a pet peeve of mine, The addition of River Song seems more like an unwelcome additional topping on a pizza there is no validation for the inclusion. That said I am not a hater of River Song, I just thing that the story could have easily worked with her not there, it provides more of a distraction to the ongoing events. Moreover to the final battle with the 11 and now the re-energised Sonomancer, or basically the re-incarnation of Caleera, whose super telepathic's are now being used with 11's already cluttered existence. The final is a wonderful almost Tolkienesque LOTR ending with the final undertakings happening on a mountain and a volcano. I enjoyed the last episode. Bonner is sublime as the 11, and McGann is well, we all know I have him as one of my favourites. He just does this so well. Liv and Helen are also becoming a great coupling and they have a audio chemistry that has many many more adventures in there to explore.
