“The Dominie and Alice decide to visit Earth, but their space time machine instead lands on a far different planet–one where the ground is covered in blood and the buildings are made of body parts. Even stranger, the inhabitants are claiming that the travellers are contaminating the area by their presence. The space machine’s next stop is a space station with only one inhabitant left, a very friendly and accommodating android named Vixxy. But what is Vixxy not saying about the disappearance of the rest of the station’s inhabitants? This is an uneven story, as Alice is suddenly at odds with The Dominie, accusing him throughout of being manipulative and superior. This is completely opposite to the wonderful affection at the end of “Ghosts”, so I kept wondering if I had missed a story between the two Time Travellers stories. An additional layer of angst is added with another revelation about Alice’s past. Sylvester McCoy as The Dominie, Sophie Aldred as Alice, Jo Philips-Lane as Samantha, Sammie Winmill as Vixxy, Peter Dean as Reg, Gary Hailes as Karsius, and other voices by various members of the cast. Directed by Mark J Thompson.60 minutes. Recommended.” (Kathryn Sullivan)
