VINE VOICETOP 500 REVIEWERon 24 August 2006
This comes right after the audio embrace the darkness, which had a superb first episode but became a very disappointing runaround of a story afterwards.

And alas, the same thing happens here.

What a set up!

Future britain under a military dictator. The daleks. Who recite shakespeare. Time travel via mirrors. And a mysterious young boy. Who is he?

Once having set this up in the first part, the next three have the doctor run around for the course of the episode before everything is resolved at the end with lots of explosions. Justin Richards has done so much doctor who fiction now many of his characters do tend to come over very cliched, and that's true of the supporting cast here. You will either guess the identity of the boy early on and find the story totally obvious as a result, or be compltely fooled and knocked for six as a result. Maybe whether you like this story or not hinges on that, but I'm afraid I fell in the former camp.
