Wonderful, funny, and thrilling. Julia McKenzie as The Twelve and Jon Culshaw as Doctor Ogron stand out as particularly brilliant.

Jon Culshaw portrays Doctor regenerated as an ogron masterfully. There is a great script here and some great character driven moments.

It is the character of the ogron called the Doctor that steals the show and makes this a must listen episode.

Ogrons have been underutilised as an alien race. They have always brought good comedy value to the show and it happens again here; added to the comedy is some touching drama as well. Guy Adams has written a great entertaining story.

The Doctor is trying to stay out of the Time War but is drawn back in when an Ogron shows up on Gallifrey in the Doctor's TARDIS and states he's the Doctor, and appears to be a hybrid of the Ogron and the Doctor.

The strength of the story are the guest acting performances. Jon Culshaw is great as Doctor Ogron, providing a wonderful performance of what could have been an absolutely absurd role. The character is given a lot of heart and goes on a journey. Julia McKenzie's introduction as the Twelve is intriguing and a new spin on the character.

Pacing is a problem for this story. It has lot of exposition and talking heads before it gets going. Still, it's a lot of fun once it does.
