Well I think that was one of the best human dramas BF have ever done.
It interesting because most of the protagonists are portrayed as people of conscience involved in an unconscionable act, so Tegen's modem moral objections and Nyssa's moral outrage prior and post event have less effect than excepted because they make assumptions. (in respect of one character's situation the whole audience are made to assume incorrectly.)
Davison dose great in a rare take of the Doctor as the outside but compassionate observer of events.
Brilliantly performed and paced, Jamie Anderson dose it again.
Can't wait to hear this one. Liked Lady of Mercia. To be honest with you guys and girls, the fifth Doctor stories are the ones I look forward to the least. Love the people in them, but there were too many sequels to other stories, but with Last years 3 Mistfall to Entropy plague and this 3 being very strong he is working his way back up the list
I'm halfway through this now. I keep trying to discipline myself to listen to one episode per week, but that hasn't actually come to fruition ... ever! Not that Doctor Who isn't often jeopardy-lead, but there is a real sense of growing danger here; I've rarely heard the Fifth Doctor so frantic and eager to get his friends away from a situation. The fact that this is a 'pure' historical, and the aggressor is mankind, makes the danger very real, very relevant and very dangerous. So far, this is an excellent release (topping off an excellent trilogy) and I recommend it to anyone who hasn't yet bought it.
