After watching the webcast of this some years ago (when was it? I can't remember-getting older) I was suitably pleased with the way the story went. I think what worked for me is that I'm a huge fan of Colin Baker's Doctor and of the relationship that he has with Evelyn, and it works realy well in this play. I did find the plot a bit conveluted and to this day can still not figure out who the CyberController is meant to be at the end ( answer's on a postcard please), I also find that I much prefer Gary Russel's audio scripts better then his books-e.g. Legacy versus Zagreus and so on- but minor gripes aside this was a fast paced and fun adventure, with the first appearence of the 6th Doctor's… Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars A so-so book, 19 Aug 2004
This is one of those books that you think is going to be sooo good.And then its release gets delayed and you want it even more.Finally, it gets into the local bookstores, you pick up your copy and rush home to start reading what potentially sounds like the best Who book ever.And a few days later you realise you were wrong.Don't misunderstand me,this book has its merits and can be fun at certain points, but there is far to much referencing to other adventures to keep the plot moving.I find that if you're going to reference things in the Whouniverse(patent pending)then you should do it on the sly, rather then slapping it in someone's face. I can't help but think that if Justin Richards or… Read more
