After successfully opposing slavery in the pocket-universe of Ecto-Space, K9 and his Mistress are treated to a life of luxury as the revered guests of Emperor Lukor. However, a life of decadence soon pales for the travellers and after making a hurried departure, they discover a society of diseased cave dwellers who are dominated by their unseen masters who they worship as gods. Experience tells the Mistress and K9 that things are not all that they seem, and in a bid to unearth the truth, they place themselves in deadly peril.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
meh, it killed an hour. nothing more nothing less.
Would you ever listen to anything by Nigel Fairs again?
This feels like it's part 2 of another story. There was no introduction or explanation for where the characters were, how they got there, why they were there. I was lost from the beginning.
This felt like it was written by someone who had heard of Doctor Who but has never actually seen an episode before.
Have you listened to any of John Leeson and Lalla Ward ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
they are both fine/ excellent as performers (duh!) sadly they were both wasted in this story.
If this book were a movie would you go see it?
Any additional comments?
stick with the big finish doctor who productions. They never disappoint.
