The story itself is written masterfully by Uncle Terry (Dicks, that is), brought to life by the amazing sound which creates a Classic Who atmosphere, without being too Classic. The listener does not need to know about the Auton's first invasion (Spearhead From Space - 1970) as there are many references and explanations as we see a whole new world through Jo's eyes. Beevers' portrayal of the Third Doctor is especially spot-on, and we also get an appearance from Bessie.
All in all, the story keeps you on tenterhooks the whole way through by meandering through different, extraordinary tales and bringing it to a crescendo of a finale.
Out July 8th 2010, it can be pre-ordered here.
