Basically it's a 'Twisted' Alice in Wonderland, as The Doctor's mind has been fractured, and gradually throughout the tale, Charlie encounters the different aspects of the Doctor's personality which leads to him getting his head together. But I still thought it was indulgent, overlong, nonsensical, irritating, misconceived and dull! The characterisation of both the eighth Doctor and Charley hits a new low!

As everyone under the sun said, this didn't need to be 4 hours long :P Still a lot of great fun though, Charley is quickly becoming a favourite companion of mine. Both McGann and Fisher steal the show as both 8/Zagreus and Charley. Nic Courtney is also a standout to. Sets up a whole new setting/sandbox for the Doctor to play in, which I hear is quite divisive, but can't wait to jump into. It has a elements that I think Moffat took and translated to the screen for Day Of the Doctor, mainly, the interface that helps a main character based on a previous companion. Thoroughly enjoyed and very much looking forward to the Divergent Arc.

Definitely overlong, filled with some lighthearted nonsense that may not mesh with some folks' taste, but not nearly as convoluted as it seems to attempt to be in parts.

My main gripe is with the sections with Pertwee. It's commendable that they wanted to include him, but he's practically inaudible, and trying to work around his dialogue unfortunately just leads to pointless and self-indulgent sections that slow the pace right down.

As a whole I find the story so entertaining though. There's genuinely interesting history and canon, and some of the spookier, unsettling parts pack a punch. Paul McGann and India Fisher are sublime, Nicholas Courtney is a treat, and the sections with Davison, Baker, and McCoy are an absolute hoot.

It feels celebratory. Daft, lengthy, fun, and worth a re-listen.

Zagreus is a mess and a long one at that!
But it does have its moments. And it also has pertwee and many other loved classic who actors.
If not for the story , listen for a little joyous nostalgia. Also to better understand the divergent arc that follows!
