This is the second free re-release that I have listened to (after Living Legend) and its not as much fun as that story. Primarily because I can’t really stand Beep. I think as baddie’s go he is rather feeble. Ok, he sounds cute but his plan is rather lazy and doesn’t have much sense of threat or menace. It’s almost like the Doctor could have saved the day with his eyes closed. The stuff with the reality show was rather annoying as the presenter is the sort of person that you would quite happily slap and it was only the stuff between Beep and the Doctor that was keeping me going. I think that they could easily have cut the reality stuff out and it would have been a much snappier adventure.
As I always say its hard to slate something that is given to us for free however I really cant lie about my feelings about this story and I think that whilst its not a terrible story neither is it a good one. I think that had this being a four parter then it would certainly have struggled and as it is the duration of this (nearly 35 minutes) is just the right length.
