This is an incredibly compelling story, very well-done, as good as the best Big Finish has to offer. Paul McGann and Sylvester McCoy are incredibly talented, as always, and they real shine in their roles here. But the supporting cast is just as good. I am loving this story, hope they keep the episodes coming.
I purchased this before it went free an it was worth every penny. Download this rare piece of sci-fi storytelling and give it a listen.
Downloading the eagerly awaited third episode. This is the best of audio drama with a smashing cast (especially The Minister). I would have paid for this as I did for the first episode, and I will crowdfund again to keep it coming. Thank you Dan, Julian, Lauren, and everyone who makes this possible.
