An excellent first solo attempt, mike tucker proves once again that he has the charecters of the 7th doctor aand ace down to a tee. The only real dissapointment was the master, although mike has put him in a different postion to normal, which i felt was good (nice to see on the reciveveing end) The master seemed almost lethargic and no visable cunning plot under his sleeve. I would have liked to see him a bit more devious. If anything i felt the copied master was better than the first, maybe intended i don't know.
Ace's chaercter seemed to be lacking something. I can't quite put my finger on it, but she, like the master, is a much more 'relaxed' version, gon is the fiery ace we saw defend a human colony against the krill.
the only other gripe i have is the lack of moral issues going on in the doctor we saw in the matrix i felt more should have been made of completey destroying a speices (the fleshsmiths) By the end of this body he should have become a deft hand at genocide.
Apart from that i felt it was well thought out and fast moveing, it was just a shame it was short compared to the others.
It is testement to Mikes talent that a plot, that could have been 2d and tacky in another writers hands, was readable, enjoyable, and kept you guessing to the very end.
If you liked illegal alein, matrix, and storm haverst then buy this.
