This one parter that was released along with, "Time Reef" finds Brewster tricking the Doctor into taking the TARDIS to 2008 so he can visit a woman he met during his travels. Yet, he finds that because of an idle comment, the world has become perfect.

Writer Johnny Morris' idea of a perfect world is simply one where people don't make mistakes. The concept could have been fleshed out a bit but it's an okay half hour. Though the comedy Fifth Dimensional plumbers responsible were fun, but a bit silly. Also, I thought the moral was less that the world needed to be imperfect but that we wouldn't fit in a perfect because we weren't. Still, it was an enjoyable tale.

This also brought the first Brewster trilogy to an end and it seems poorly planned, hurt by the fact that Brewster barely appeared in the middle story, "The Boy Time Forgot." So this story sees Brewster leaving all too soon. Thankfully'd be back for more, though with another Doctor.

This is the additional content that we are graced with by the Jonathan Morris, not the same writer of the main feature. However this is the clear up, or, putting to bed of the Thomas Brewster scenario. I thought that it certainly gave us closure, as to whether this will be the final spin of what essentially could have been a unique companion creation, we seem to have to wait and see what will happen. The one sure fire thing is that John Picard steals this performance from under the feet of Peter. I do like that fact that Peter as his character provides in an almost fatherly way a means for Thomas to live in his newly chosen time, as, the Doctor as we hear the ending credits music fade up.

This had all the makings of a really punchy tale but I felt the deus ex machina plumbers let the thing down badly
