I was slightly disappointed by the beginning of this story. I expect more out of Paul Cornell. But then he pulled the rug out from under me. I should NEVER doubt Paul Cornell. What he did early in the story he did on purpose and it paid off. How's that for no spoilers?
Also, I could hear the voices of the actors in my head while reading this. He nailed it. I want more Paul Cornell Third Doctor stories!!
