Seventh audio in an eight part series featuring the eighth doctor who and his new companion, feisty northern teenager lucie miller. All these are forty five minute long episodes. Some are complete stories and others are two parters. This is one of the latter, and will be concluded in the forthcoming human resources part two.
Throughout these stories, there's been a running story. Lucie was put with the doctor by the time lords because she saw something she shouldn't have. But they blocked her memory of it. And a mysterious bounty hunter has been on her trail. Now with lucie in the clutches of those who were after her, the doctor is on his way to the rescue. But he's been warned not to interfere too much. And he might just find there's a good reason for that..
You will find this a little tricky to get into if you haven't heard any of the previous ones in the series, since it ties up a lot of plot from them. It also brings back an element of the show that hasn't been present in the new tv series, for reasons that will quickly become apparent. This is a very strong script, lucie's predicament being an interesting take on a modern aspect of life, the cast are as good as ever, especially the two leads, and it ends on one of the most fantastic cliffhangers the show has ever done! So don't read the cast list or the inlay first if you want to keep that a surprise.
There are twelve minutes worth of interviews with the cast at the end of the disc. These are a little cursory, but they have their moments.
A really great audio. Roll on part two.
