Enjoyable and well performed.

Cleaver story and engaging performance by Colin McFarlane. He captures the 12th Doctor very well indeed that you can almost imagine Peter Capaldi standing in the recording booth with him.
James Goss has also captured the characteristics of the twelfth very well. I enjoyed it enough to say I've listened to it a few times now.

Excellent Episode

Excellent Narration and a tight, gripping story.

The story never flags and, bar the gruesome ending, could have been a good TV episode given the contained setting.

Especially enjoyable is that the author has captured Clara's quirkiness and the Drs irritable nature well with some great dialogue; their 'toe' chat is pure comedy gold that would have worked well on TV, and the Drs diatribe against committees is the best TV speech he never gave.

Highly recommended!
