The Doctor, Ace and Benny return to an Earth - Haiti to be exact - in the throes of the First World War.
The plot is a mishmash of Indiana Jones and James Bond outtakes; but surprisingly it works! Baron Samedi from 'Live & Let Die' is using voodoo and zombification to facilitate a takeover of the earth by the 'Old Ones' - we are never really told who these beings are, apart from old enemies of the Time Lords who rode 'the time winds' (for no apparent reason).
Despite this self-referential nonsense the story is fast-paced and exciting; likeable and well-rounded characters and a Doctor who is both resourceful and compassionate, without being too enigmatic.
The real attention-grabber here though is Ace; she appears to be turning into a fully-fledged psycho, almost enjoying the killing which is becoming more and more a facet of her persona.
All-in-all this is one of the highlights of the 'Further Adventure' series so far - although the tension between the two companions is beginning to stretch very thin...
