What the Critics Say

"As it might be gathered from the title, BBV`s latest release is an emotional rollercoaster of a story. Only Human is Mark J Thompson`s debut contribution to The Time Travellers series, and is a pretty impressive one at that. There are still hints of Doctor Who here, with the ship featuring a swimming pool (as in The Invasion of Time) and with some of the controls relying on mercury (as in The Daleks), but these are subtle, and don`t detract from the story. There are several different meanings to the title, but the most obvious is the emotional wrangles between the characters. Whether it is Alice and The Dominie, Alice and her father, (from which we learn a lot more about her past) or The Dominie and the semi-organic android Vixxy, all have some relevance. Of the supporting cast Vixxy is the most memorable; suffering with just as many problems an android can have, being reminiscent of Kamelion or Kryten from Red Dwarf. Perhaps less obvious, is when the ship lands on a blood-covered planet, and The Dominie and Alice are taken prisoner by a cell. If there is one thing that Only Human is about above more than anything else, it is making decisions and living with the consequences. Superbly acted, Only Human is tough going at times, but is ultimately very rewarding. Thoroughly recommended.” (Stuart Gutteridge)
