Bumpy goings on and loud voices in the creepy old house.
7 September 2015 | by (Swansea, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

At a house two men are making recordings, but tragedy strikes as something appears and causes one man 'Mitch' to kill the other. Tom discovers his brother 'Michael' has indeed been working for Martindale and been taking part in experiments about dreams. Tom also proves his own capabilities to Martindale. Martindale hears the recordings, and hears something worrying. Mitch lands up in hospital Tom witnesses an aura around him, Mitch lashes out after recognising Roy, prompting Tom and Anne to investigate the house, Anne informs Tom that Drexill had dealings with the house. When alone Tom struggles to cope with the voices, which take advantage of his psychic abilities.

The 70's equipment looks straight out of Doctor Who, some wonderfully retro machines covered in dials and flashing lights. I really enjoy some of the imagery, they weren't bound by needing state of the arts effects.

I'm biased as a Doctor Who fan, especially Tom Baker's years, so I naturally find Louise Jameson a total delight, she works so well with James Hazeldine, he was such a good actor.

I wonder had this series been made a little later it would have had bigger impact.

There is a definite growing antagonism between Tom and Roy, Tom clearly doubts Roy's word concerning his meeting Julia at the start, he mistrusts him.

It's a good episode with some good concepts, more pedestrian and slower then the opener, quite a few clichés, but some really good aspects. 6/10
