    This was the story that started me off on my Eighth Doctor journey. The story intrigued me so I bought his whole first season, and the next, and the next… There were no regrets, no tears, no anxiety. I went forward and loved every minute of this continuing ride.

    I remember being quite surprised by all the negative reviews I read of this at the time. I thought McGann was very Doctorish and the settings were all atmospheric. I love the Garrazone bazaar which we revisit many times after this and I also enjoy the story and its treatment of the Cybermen. That first eighth Doctor season was so exciting to this fan particularly as it felt like the only performed continuation we would ever have!

      I wasn’t really aware of how people responded to this negatively which is interesting. I’ll have to check out some reviews.

    I hadn’t heard the AV version, at the time of the BF release, so it came with a huge reputation. I loved Deeva and the notion of a Star Destroyer full of dormant Cybermen, is superb.
