It runs for two episodes of almost thirty minutes each and is complete on one cd.
And isn't easy to review without spoilers.
Suffice it to say that all the plot threads from the previous stories in the season come together here, so it's probably not a good one for a stand alone listen and better for those who follow the series regularly.
It takes a past adversary of the Doctor who may never have been taken seriously in the past and turns them into a very cunning and dangerous adversary. Thanks not least to a great performance from the actor playing them.
And it considers the moral question of whether or not the end ever justifies the means. The Doctor is always resolute in his desire not to let people die. And yet not everyone may always agree with him. Which means that a few characters here have some very convincingly rendered soul searching to deal with. And change results.
Alongside all there's also an exciting battle with the Ice Warriors.
But it gets the Doctor's character so very right - he has interesting things to say about a past incarnation and there's a big hint about....something we may hear in due course. And Paul McGann tackles all this with aplomb delivering a superb performance.
A gripping audio that makes you think as well. Best of the season so far.Read more ›
Some things worked less well for me - this could be in the spirit of being different i.e. not being entirely formulaic and I thought there was a brutality to some of the plot that jarred, but overall a solid excellently made story
What I like about this story is that it again seems to be quite mindful of the "classic" Doctor Who stories - the Doctor is involved in the action, but is also torn with moral dilemmas, finds himself having to justify his motivations, and is caught up in the Web of Time. The old enemies (without being too specific) that again cross his path are welcome returns. Where the story leads from here will be the next step of the journey for us all - the suspense is building in these stories that are obviously leading up to a big confrontation somewhere along the way. Can't wait!
