This is more of a slow-burner than last month's double-discer (it's bound to be, really), but no less enjoyable for that. At times I thought it was going to flourish into a character piece between Suzy (with whom the audios have not yet become frequently acquainted) and Anwir. Also, at first, I thought Amwir was going to be the constant victim of Suzy's waspish wit. But neither of these things really happened - instead we get a straightforward, gently unfolding plot full of nice character moments, a more 'trimmed' Suzy, and some frightening revelations. I love the Torchwood range, and this story is a good example of what makes it great for me. Hopefully we'll hear more from Rafaella Marcus soon.
Also, I'm surprised there are so few Big Finsh stories set in or under the water. With their exemplary sound design, such settings are really atmospheric, and the closest we get to an alien planet while still remaining on Earth.
Finally - what a terrific cover. Well done Sean Longmore!
Just finished listening to the story. That was another good one. I was wondering just what the twist was going to be. We all heard "just one lifeform" after she got onboard, so what was Anwir? I was thinking about that for a bit and then was just pulled in by the dynamics of the relationship and forgot about it. Very well done.
Just finished listening to this one (i like to have a backlog so I can binge listen (if thats the right term) several TW and I thought it was one of the strongest for a while. I do wish we had more Suzie stories although I understand she is probably too busy to do more but I think that Suzie is an undervalued character and this story proves it.
