There is a FANTASTIC, funny central idea here that provides the backbone of the entire story. However, this idea alone does not equate to a full Doctor Who story and as such the story massively overstays its welcome. Perhaps as a one hour, two part story this would work, but as it stands it just feels drawn out and tedious.

Of course, as with all of Dorney's Who, there is a lot of fun to be had here and there are some lovely moments. Unfotunately for me there is only enough to make this story just about above average.

The Doctor, Ace, and Mel land on a Planet called Parking which is dedicated to parking and things quickly begin to go bonkers in typical Doctor Who fashion.

There's not a whole lot to this story. Essentially, at the story is one good joke, a decent pun, and a few cringeworthy ones. Story is pretty pain by numbers with way too much expository dialogue and the sort of villain that's been done to death in Doctor Who.

There was a time when a story from John Dorney would be assumed to be great. You'd expect humour and dram and excitement. The last few stories however have fallen short of the mark with this being his weakest yet.

Ridiculous plot, poor characters and unlikely scenarios. Plus this release features possibly one of the top ten worst performances in a BF release. Kate Duchene As Regina was awful, pure and simple. Nothing to redeem it. She dragged down every scen, hell the whole story. She was a massive part of why this story failed.

It is a historical fact that between the many excellent original series stories, there were lesser "Filler" stories holding them together. This is one of those.

The crew finds a dystopian society, gets caught up between warring factions, then saves the day and escapes. There is nothing wrong with it, but nothing great either.

The three main characters are all played to character well, but the script lacks meaningful interaction between them, which is a lost opportunity. There are some great moments for the characters as individuals, such as Mel hacking and Ace blowing things up, but there is no reason for all three to be together in this one.
