Human Resources Part 2: Surely I am your most arch of enemies?
on 13 September 2013
First released in 2006, this is the eighth episode of a of the first standalone series for Paul McGann's Eighth Doctor outside of the monthly range of Big Finish releases. This is a one disc release, with a single 50 minute episode. There are some interviews with cast and crew at the end of the disc.
This is the second part of a two part story that wraps up the first season. Picking straight up from the cliffhanger at the end of part one, the Doctor realises the truth and just what a terrible mistake he has made. Pretty soon we are thrust into a thrilling adventure as the Doctor and Lucie struggle to defeat Cybermen, whilst simultaneously unravelling the Time Lord's interventions and working out just what is REALLY going on.
It's another fun run around for Eight and Lucie, with a script that just crackles with energy. McGann and Smith are on top form, clearly having a lt of fun. But there are some darker moments here, which they also handle very well to make this a really top drawer episode. T's a great way to wrap up the season, 5 stars.
