VINE VOICEon 18 September 2009
I enjoyed this story, mainly because it was so good to hear all my old Torchwood friends again. The acting and direction is really consistent with the BBC television series, and in some ways, the tone is similar to the episodes of the second series (not as black as Children Of Earth), even though this takes place after the team lost Tosh and Owen. Where the story DOES differ substantially from the television series is that the character of PC Andy is allowed to take centre stage for much of this drama, and this is one of the strengths of an audio format like this. Tom Price is always likeable in the role on television, and is no different in this story, except he does get to show a little more moral backbone than we are used to, standing up to both Gwen and Jack. Gwen also comes off well in this story, but with little time spent on Captain Jack and Ianto, I did feel a little short-changed. Worse than that is the fact that the story seems very similar to the brilliant first series TV story "Out of Time", (in which an aviator woman from the past falls through the rift), with elements of "Sleeper", (where the alien woman is unaware that she isn't human). But these don't ruin the experience for me, and the story's saving grace is that this is a nice little character vignette for Andy. We are allowed to see both his compassion and Tom Price's acting strengths within the familiar Torchwood setting.
