A fantastic continuation of 'Project: Twilight', 'Project: Lazarus' continues the story of Cassie, Nimrod and the Forge. With a similar tone to Twilight, Lazarus is very dark and unsettling, and there are a few incredibly sad moments which threaten to destroy the relationship between the Doctor and Evelyn.

The 7th doctor parts aren't as good, but they're still great.

Part 1 & 2 are 10/10, while 3 & 4 are just awful. I often skip them on a relisten, as they serve no purpose.

This story never really worked for me. First of all, it's basically two stories, linked but separate. The first story is a sequel to Project:Twilight, as the Doctor finally goes back for Cassie. This story feels somewhat obligatory to me. It's there to resolve a bit of a loose end, to set-up the next two episodes, and to put a rift in the Doctor's relationship with Evelyn for the next Evelyn story to explore. As such, the plot feels contrived. Things happen because they need to happen in order for the story to hit its beats. Cassie's a member of the Forge now, so we need her to feel resentment against the Doctor, so the TARDIS has to arrive late for no other reason. She needs to rebel against the Forge, so Nimrod altered her memory in a way that has no clear benefit to him, but is easily detectable by anyone who has met Cassie before. Of course, all of these stories are scripted, and all of these characters are behaving the way the writers want them to in order to serve the story, but sometimes it shows. This is one of those times.

Disc Two is much better. The sixth and seventh Doctors are an especially good pairing, and a lot of the fun of these episodes comes from them. The truth of the sixth Doctor's involvement is chilling, and like any good sequel, this really raises the stakes between the Doctor and the Forge. Unfortunately, now that we've actually seen it (so to speak), the Forge seems rather less impressive than it did when it was just part of Project: Twilight's backstory. Nimrod, the only character we knew who was associated with the Forge, is now in charge of it (for all intents and purposes). I liked him better as the deadly, implacable field agent.

A sequel to Project: Twilight that has begins with the Doctor and Evelyn returning to help Cassie from that story, only for them both to be taken to the Forge. This actually becomes a very unique take on the multi-Doctor story as the last two parts focus on the Seventh Doctor. It features strong acting performances and some very high emotional drama in the first two parts.

The story suffers because of Nimrod. The way the story's villain is written goes too far. He's written as so over the top evil that the character behaves in senselessly stupid ways which actually undercut the drama. Still, there's enough that very good and unique about this story to make it a solid listen despite this defect.
