In this third part of the story, we first hear what happened to Paul Hunt, and why he is now involved in the Scorpius project. I thought this was a brilliant bit of backstory, and really helps us to see what’s going on, as we piece together the events from then on. The President is backed into a corner that she can find no escape from, if she means to win the war against the androids at any cost. Meanwhile, Barnaby and Samantha are in trouble as the Cybermen play out their own strategies; and can common ground between the androids and the humans ever be found, if they have a common enemy?
This is a fantastic third part to the story (and a little shorter in duration than the first two parts), and the third in a wonderful set of four interlinked stories which make up the first Cyberman set.
The cast are really well placed, and the writing by Nick Briggs is excellent. There are only about eight core cast members (Hannah Smith, Barnaby Edwards, Ian Brooker, Toby Longworth, Samantha Sanns, Mark McDonnell, Nicholas Briggs, Sarah Mowat), but they each play multiple roles (apart from Sarah Mowat who is dedicated to the role of President Karen Brett), and it feels like you’re listening to a story with a cast of hundreds. The scope is huge, the stakes monumental, and the mystery intriguing.Read more ›
Ok, posing as a human Sam needs to eat and therefore has to expel the waste and is capable of vomiting so has a digestive system. Presumably she has a robotic brain and this is what keeps her from being human but isn't she very close to being a cyborg? Also a female character is converted to a Cyberman and retains a distinctly female voice?
The lines between Cyborg and Android are rather blurred. It’s odd that given an AI androids are more human than Cyborgs.
Why can't the Cyber-conversion process be done on Earth? The repeated kissing for the sake of keeping Liam in control of his facilities seems a bit unnecessary but I am trying not to be prissy about, but it does have a negative impact on the tone. Sam is already engaged in a love affair with Prime Reordin (Toby Longworth) the leader of the androids and was Paul's lover. In terms of writing there is a definite dip in terms of quality although not by much in what has otherwise been a remarkably consistent series.
Forced to flee earth for their own survival, our heroes from the last part have to battle the cybermen, before an exciting piece of space action where help comes their way.
Even so, some androids aren't too happy they'll have to work with humans, even though their survival depends on it.
And off they head, to find and destroy the cybermen.
Not quite as gripping as part two, although it does have it's moments. This does serve mostly to give the androids more screen time and introduce the central theme - see the title of this review - but having gotten this far, you will want to know what happens next. And part four is well worth it
