Proves what can be done with a low budget and good actors.
Anyone interested in low budget British science fiction is urged to try and find a copy of this title. It's a Doctor Who spin-off which features one of the Doctor's old companions, as well as several of the actors who played the Doctor in different roles. This is a small scale science fiction tale which doesn't rely on special effects to tell a compelling story.
