This is dam clever, also it is an very elaborate exploration of the characters Hex and is background. It jumps around, which actually works, it displays McCoy and his boundless characterisation of No.7. It is fair to say that he has grown out the character to a much more complex, and as we find later on in this much more ruthless self determined individual with greater aspirations of self than previous Doctor's before him. We start with HEX who has been wounded by a musket shot in the last No.7 drama - Angel of Scutari, has been taken back to his own time so the Doctor can try and save him from certain death. Things slowly start to unravel when it appears that the time that HEX, ACE and the Doctor have landed back in isn't quite the same time frame as thought, and not only is the Doctor up against trying to save HEX, but London is infested with humans who are metamorphosing into insects, and the FORGE are on the case, which poses a completely unrelated problem, the truth of HEX mother's death, and the truth perhaps of the Doctors real relationship with the FORGE.

This is a well written and exceptionally well acted release. I also got the distinct impression that everyone involved in this throughly enjoyed themselves, it is one of those story that works so well in audio format, I think that Cavan and Mark have written a subtle and clever twist on the audio version of story telling in time lapse and for that it is well worth the money and the listen.

The apparent plot, that an alien contagion escaped from the forge has caused the evacuation of London and is now infesting people who become deadly bug aliens while the Doctor tries to find a cure was kind of simple and boring.

The underlying plot that a vulnerable Hex is now in contact with Nimrod is drawn out and painful.

I enjoyed this on my first listen, but I'm bagging it now on my second as it just isn't a stand alone story.

There are constant references to Angel of Scutari, Enemy of the Daleks and Project: Lazarus making it almost impossible to listen to without those. If you do, you wouldn't appreciate the interplay between Nimrod and Hex. Even worse is that this story links forward as well, both as a set up for a Death in the Family and as a down payment on the Black and White trilogy.

Take the story arc parts away and what is left is a second rate bug hunt. Leave it in and all this is, is a piece of a puzzle.

The story arc this is critical to is excellent. The whole is better than the sum of the parts, but this is not one of the best parts.

Loved this one. It's all modern and clinical, but the characters warm it up in the right places and the mechanics of the plot don't clank too loudly. Not a good place to jump onto the range, but a really satisfying conclusion for those who've been long term listeners.

My score of 6 is because I find this story solid but not exceptional and that I prefer the previous 2 Nimrod stories - 'Project: Twilight' and 'Project: Lazarus' more.
