    1. The first half of this is pretty enjoyable, though with a few flaws that I'll get to in a moment. The plot, which centers around a nightclub in Ibiza where the DJs claim to be angels, is pretty interesting. And as a bonus, we delve into Ace's family background a little more. I didn't like the second half quite as much. The final episode, where all is revealed and resolved, felt drawn out and a bit confusing. The play also suffers a bit from the problem that any work of fiction trying to portray [...]

    2. Oh dear. After such a sterling turn by Colin Baker and Nicola Bryant, we're back with the special needs gang. Sylvester McCoy puts in a sleepwalking performance as Doc 7, barely bothering to work out where to put the emphases in his lines, although his more egregious turns of pronunciation are reined in. Sophie Aldred as Ace has only two registers: painfully angsty and painfully perky, both delivered in a hideously shouty tone. Oh wait, and there's the completely blah in-between moments of which [...]

    3. Not sure why this one got so many bad reviews. I'm guessing those people had not done pills in clubs or had any point of reference for the story. It was a good emotional story about relationships, mental illness and co-dependency. The idea of religion and nightclubs was very scary, and at the same time very easy to imagine for a themed rave. It was nice to see the Doctor and Ace in a more grown up environment, their time on TV was very much for children, and it's nice to see them a bit more matu [...]

    5. Well this wasting. I actually dreaded this one but i decided to give it a shot. And was it good? Or was it the worst story i ever listened to? Well the first half is quite good with The Doctor and Ace in Ibiza in a nightclub called The Rapture. And the psychedelic drug trips were.Weird. Then the second half comes in and then it gets weird. Very weird. It go's from a story about a nightclub to a story about religious gobblygoop. No offense but all that was quite stupid. It had really no relation [...]

    6. Oy.One of the cardinal rules for Doctor Who writers should be "Never try to be hip." (Rapping Ringmaster in "The Greatest Show in the Galaxy", I'm looking at you!) This idea of dropping The Doctor and Ace in an Ecstasy fueled rave scene is awkward in the extreme. Borderline painful.While I am always game to hear a little more of the Seventh Doctor and Ace working through her childhood trauma, this is not the way to do it.Also, what is the deal with Sylvester McCoy's audio levels? He goes from in [...]

    7. A mainly Ace-focused story that I feel go a little bit overboard with the backstory. The soundscape created for this worked quite well, as I felt like I was involuntarily dragged into a mad rave party while I thought I was having a lovely day alone in the comfort of my home. Goes to show how your eyes can deceive you. While the lunacy and mass hypnosis (and the horrible music) was rather terrifying, it somehow didn't really feel like a Doctor Who-story to me. And that unknown relative-business f [...]

    8. Lots of Who stories begin with the Doctor trying to take his companions to some noted holiday spot to unwind and then ending up somewhere they didn't expect. This time round, however, they actually arrive in contemporary Ibiza; only, of course, to discover that there are angelic beings, with an evil agenda, running the top night-club, and that Ace's family history is catching up with her. I had my doubts about the attempts to give Ace some family background in Season 26, but I thought this was w [...]

    9. Never really got into this one. Maybe it was the techno music theme or all the religious gobbledygook or the meh story but it just didn't do much for me. Ace gets fed up with 7's manipulating and all the constant strife and decides she needs a reprieve from it. Haven't we done this about a dozen times already? Didn't Paul Cornell pretty much cover this in 'Love and War' and do a pretty fine job of it then? Why re-hash the idea. Also, the normally wonderful Sylvester McCoy does kind of mail it in [...]

    10. The Doctor takes Ace to Ibiza to chill out after her recent adventures. There she discovers the club scene, while the Doctor finds out about a possible alien invasion. You could see this one work on TV, and its nice to see Ace act like a young person for a change, and enjoy herself, however briefly. A good listen.

    11. I really enjoyed three quarters of the story and then found the last quarter harder to follow. This doesn't seemed to have deterred me from liking it as i've happily made up an ending which works for me at the mid point of disc 2.

    12. It was so bad, I gave up after the first two parts. I don't think I've ever given up on a Who audio. Oh sure, there are some I've had a hard time with and some I've zoned out whist listening to, but given up? Only this one.

    13. The Seventh Doctor and Ace visit The Rapture nightclub in Ibiza in 1997, where two angels are brainwashing clubgoers, and Ace discovers a secret about her family.

    14. Meh. It didn't work for me. The only bright spot was the reveal of Ace's brother.

    15. Well, that was shouty.
