3.0 out of 5 stars Mediocre, 30 Mar. 2010
This review is from: Paper Cuts (Doctor Who) (Audio CD)
Sadly this is becoming a trend with Marc Platt plays (a shame given he is responsible for two of my favourite stories).

This story sees the re-introduction of the Draconians, one of the more positively remembered races, if only because their costumes stood the test of time unlike so many other alien races from the Pertwee period. Unfortunately there isn't really much of a purpose to their re-introduction, the plot could be serviced equally well with any other race.

At the end of the day I had trouble paying attention to this story, indeed I listened to part 3 many times over as I simply found myself tuning out. It's placement in an otherwise exciting and well placed trilogy is questionable, it adds nothing to the arc which feels odd given how tense blue forgotten planet and patient zero are. It does serve as a demonstration that Colin and Mila travelled together, but honestly this is explained in Blue Forgotten planet.
You can listen to this play without the other two parts of the trilogy, but my recommendation would be to listen to them and skip this one.
