This story takes place in the far future and then during in the War of 1812 as the Doctor and Ace battle an alien species who infect words to gain control over humanity and the burning of Washington DC by the British becomes a handy solution for the problem. Overall, the story is well-researched with Ace having some very interesting reactions to the historic events.

We have a blink and you would miss it, instalment from the 7th Doctor era. Which is cleverly written and wonderfully acted, narrated by Sophie. Taking us on the journey of her and the Doctor battling a monster who literally is using the power of words to spread his desire to control and dominate. The outstanding thing about this production is the writing. This instalment coming from the word processor of Mr Richardson, famed author and playwright. The quality of the plot is excellent and, quite easily feels televisual throughout and the concept is quite apt for someone whom makes their living from writing. One could be forgiven if Julian as used this as form of cathartic therapy to rid himself of the demons that may often visit a writer, when he is plying his trade. The concept of a mind demon that can transform itself into the actual printed word, and then infests it host by the digestion of the writing itself is something that isn't new. However the manner in which this is produced, acted and written, makes for an excellent Who tale.
