Bat-sh*t crazy in a wonderful way. After the first part, was a bit unsure if I was going to like it, but the cliffhanger, not a traditional one, a bit of standard dialogue and then the closing theme. All of the episodes are like this and you want to continue so that you know whats going on.
Thoroughly enjoying this run of 8th Doctor stories, please don't disappoint Divergent Arc!

One of the best stories I've ever heard. Rob Shearman is claerly a genius. There's only two 'real' peoples here and they run the story forward together. Paul Mc Gann and India Fisher need to won a price for this acting.

The Doctor is dark, defeatist and sad. He don't want Charley to come with him and we can feel this. This story show who's really the Doctor who he is really ! I didn't talk of some moments on TV when he say a speech and say 'I'm old and wise' no, here he had lost things, everything, and he want to be in peace. Mc Gann is the Doctor even if he only appeared a short time on screen in audio he make the Doctor live.

Charley is good to. It was one of my first story with her and I wasn't disapointed. India is perhaps the best companion I've ever seen (she isn't my favorite but she is the best companion). That's shad because this is the last story where she really 'live' after this there's C'rizz and he take a lot of place.

The sound monster was really creepy and his voice effect was quite spooky. I've jumped when I've heard Mc Gann repeated 'And again, and again, and again'. This is a monster that will be spoiled if he appear on TV.

The plot was... I can't say what it was because the plot twist was perfect. I wasn't even expecting one.
Listen this because it's one of the best Big Finish ever made.

I've few words as this is a story you truly don't want spoiled. But turn the lights off turn the volume up and prepare to get lost in one of the whoniverses most creepy and mysterious environments yet.

Good luck !

What an outstanding story this is! It's a brilliant follow-up to "Zagreus". The only thing that happened in that story that matters at all to us now is that the Doctor was forced to leave our universe forever, and Charley goes with him, and that's where this story picks up.

It also presents us a dark and frightening version of the Doctor. He hasn't been possessed by an evil alien entity. He's just been changed by recent events, and not in a good way. The Doctor's behavior, especially in Part One, is a response to trauma. He's bitter, he's resentful, and he's angry. The man he used to be is gone. And poor Charley is stuck with him forever. She gave up everything to be with the man she loves, but the man she loves is gone, and she's doomed to spend the rest of her life with a man who doesn't want her around.

But that's just the beginning of this story, which manages to completely redefine the Doctor/Charley relationship, all while telling a startlingly original story unlike any we've ever had before. Rob Shearman's script constantly underscores the fact that the Doctor and Charley are now in a whole other universe which they know nothing about, and which is not obliged to resemble their own universe in any way. And the most effective way to communicate that to the audience is to hit them with a story that doesn't resemble anything we've ever said before.

And that's what we get, and it's fantastic.
