The Helliax Rift is a pretty average story. Handcock has some promising threads in his story, and the plot, while a retread at times, is interesting enough, but he fails to really deliver anything decisively interesting in his story, instead relying on tried and true “UNIT story” tropes to carry the story through the finish line. Peter Davison is generally stronger than he usually is in solo stories, and gives a decent performance, while “companion du jour”, Blake Harrison, has a bit of difficulty conveying a range of emotions in his performance. The guest cast, especially Russ Bain and Deborah Thomas, are generally strong and help to make Handcock’s script a reality pretty well. But the story just can’t really do much more than just sort of exist; it’s not a bad story, by any stretch of the imagination, but it’s just a story with potential that frustratingly squanders it in favor of telling a story that retreads old ground, in more ways than one.
