This is a good story where the vision outstrips the execution.

Pay very close attention in stereo. Use headphones. Remember how things worked in the Wrong Doctors? Two Jagos and two Litefoots means one Jago is speaking from the right and the other from the left. Likewise for Litefoot. Sadly I lost track of which was which, but I could still tell them apart and I acknowledge this is a great attempt at a technical masterpiece. There is no dishonour in falling short.

Storywise, it is good and the complexity of the investigating characters (all 6 of them) is balanced by the relative simplicity of the main villain's plot.

The whole series is well worth listening to. Justin Richards knows the characters well and is no novice with them. The acting is good even though the duplicated characters are hard to tell apart.

A good conclusion to the box set that finds Jago and Litefoot teaming up with the alternate universe Jago and Litefoot, as well as the team of infernal investigators who emerged instead of them, Luke Betterman and Aubrey. David Warner's Betterman is believable and has just a bit more authority than the main universe Betterman and his performance is a real highlight of this episode. The story moves on well and avoids spending too much time on villain set up thanks to the solution.

The story is not without flaws. Having both Jagos and both Litefoots in this story is problematic because the Jagos and Litefoots share way too many scenes and there's no real vocal differentiation. The story seems to be aiming for the idea that if Jago and Litefoot meet in any universe, they'll be drawn together into adventure. That's an okay idea, but not when it creates this much crowding in the story. Personally, I'd have preferred to really have a strong contrast between Jago and Litefoot and Betterman and Aubrey. The actual contribution to the plot by the alternates doesn't amount to much.

Regardless, the story was a fun listen and does a nice job wrapping up the box set and setting this up nicely for Series 14.
