  1. At first I thought Oh, the Doctor is killed off and then they ll quickly revive him with a wave of the hand explanation how boring But that didn t happen They did kill off the Doctor And he actually stayed dead Oh, how deliciously unpredictable , I thought instead By the second part they certainly had my attention, and as the Word Lord popped up, I was thrilled to see how it would all pan out He reminds me of the Master in many ways, but that could hardly be taken as anything but a compliment Th [...]


  2. This story follows on directly from the preceding one, Project Destiny, with much of it taking place in the same setting, although there are no continuing characters, other than the regular cast In the mid two parts, however, it does wander around rather further, taking the opportunity to bring Ace and Hex into the foreground and focus on their reactions to events at the end of the first part.There are a number of good points in the story, most notably bringing back 6th Doctor audio companion Ev [...]

  4. You re a heretic I m a historian Evelyn may be the best companion ever I must say I was disappointed there wasn t Evelyn in the audio But her part at the end was priceless I do love her and McCoy But then she s just brilliant with all of them I did like the Word Lord better in this one and I liked how they dealt with him Ace was brilliant as always.


  5. Loved it Very clever use of word play which makes sense considering the villain of the piece Nice to revisit Evelyn, and have Hex and Ace in the spotlight too.


  6. The essence of seventh Doctor stories Tricky, manipulative, complex It will keep you absorbed all the way through Tons of loose ends get tied and lots of continuity Fantastic story.


  7. Okay, so it s a bit continuity heavy but an enjoyable and clever story.The Seventh Doctor at his manipulative best.
