So this is the final story for the Class box set which was meant to be a revival for the show (as the TV version is almost certainly never coming back), and it did something that no story should ever make you do- doubt if the original material was that good.
The plot of the episode is weirdly simple- Ace, when travelling with the Doctor in Remembrance of the Daleks, sees a Dalek fall through a crack, so as an older woman Ace revisits the school to defeat the Dalek. So the basic plot could have been like Dalek, a base under siege with high emotions from the main cast member (Ace) towards the Daleks due to past experiences.
The problem to the episode came with a few things. The first is the environment that this story is set in. Its just Coal Hill School at night. That means the only threat this Dalek has is against Quill, Charlie (Who we know isn't going to die due to this story being set mid-season) and Ace (where the fans probably would have killed Guy Adams if he did). So basically most of the episode revolves around a Dalek wandering through an empty school with Quill Ace and Charlie. One amazing thing that happened in the episode is Charlie jumps through a crack to go back to old Coal Hill in the middle of Remembrance. Is he going to witness certain events of that episode? Not really. But he does talk to young Ace which then sends his message to her own future so he can communicate with old Ace. This happens once which could have a great story revolving around it.
So what does Adams do with the runtime which isn't running away from the Dalek or the few brief minutes we have him interacting in 1963. He just makes Quill and Ace argue. This could have been so much more if they had worked together but even by the end they still hate each other from Quill's actions. I'm pretty sure people who buy this don't want the main two characters to argue for the runtime while running away from a Dalek.

Overall a disappointing ending to a failed show's audio box set. If you want an amazing story with Ace, pick one there are dozens. If you want a good story with Quill, pick one cause she only has one good story revolving around her.

Lovely lovely end to the series. Throw a dalek miss quill and ace in a school and listen away... brill!

This is yet another great story for quill but it’s also rather a good nod to classic remembrance of the daleks. The sounds and tracks add to this and bring on a fond grin.
Ace is great and quill a cow, brilliant but a cow haha!

It feels like a nice cherry on top at the end , much enjoyed!
