Gallifrey 1.4 - A Blind Eye,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gallifrey 1.4 - A Blind Eye (Doctor Who S.) (Audio CD)
Earlier in the series, Romana met up with a ‘knowledge broker’ by the name of Mephistopheles Arkadian. Now, while Romana would still like to find who is behind the Free Time terrorists, Arkadian reckons he has a bargaining chip he can use with her to sort out a problem of his own. But this problem appears to involve Charley Pollard’s sister Cecilia, and takes place in Europe in 1939, at a time when the world is poised on the brink of war. What could all this possibly have to do with Free Time, and why are Romana and Leela so worried?
This is the fourth and final cd in the first series of the Gallifrey stories. This is a really fitting end to this first series, and loose ends are tied up, but enough is left open (as real life is) to allow for the second series to kick off with strong characters, strong motivations and the continuing political and timelordish shenanigans will continue on. As always, the actors are very commanding in their performances, particularly Louise Jameson as Leela, and Andy Coleman as Torvald. Ms Joy was a joy indeed, and Arkadian, played by Hugo Myatt has just the right amount of devil-may-care and double-speak in his tone to convince any listener. Great stuff; looking forward to catching up with series two.

Hey thanks timelord007. Oh I didn't know that about Hugo Myatt, I don't think I've seen or heard him in anything else.
Thanks for the positive feedback!
