So here we are at the final Eight/Charley story, and it's bittersweet, because after finally getting shut of C'rizz (Absolution) it feels as if the Eight/Charley combination is back in fine form.

The Divergent Universe arc (Scherzo through The Next Life) was a slog. Charley was short-tempered and irritable, and Paul McGann's Doctor sounded like he was just going through the motions. Add newcomer C'rizz to the mix, and everyone just seemed unhappy and bored. Furthermore, C'rizz, the killer with t...more

This was a very good ending to Charley and the Doctor's travelling together. It was a fun adventure with all sorts of twists and turns. There was mistaken identity and then cybermen and lots of time travel. It was also fantastic that the cybermen voices were the singing cybermen voices of tenth planet. That was just lovely. A good adventure though I am also sad that the adventures of Charley and this Doctor are coming to an end.

Gave it four stars because I think Charley and Eight, despite some tension in the beginning, were back in fine form for this, their last adventure together. I enjoyed their banter and teamwork, and the ending was appropriately timey-wimey and bittersweet. Onwards and upwards! Starting in on the Charley and Six run tonight or tomorrow.

Alan Barnes is always a writer who makes me sit up, so I was looking forward to The Girl Who Never Was. However I was a little disappointed. The elements are great - Anna Massey claiming to be an elderly Charley, Cybermen on an abandoned ship near Singapore, timewarping and decay - but it doesn't quite gel as well as Barnes at his best.

After the loss of C'rizz, Charley demands to be taken home. Instead, she and the Doctor end up split between 1942 and 2008, on board a mysterious lost battleship near Singapore.
Mary Smithz
Absolutely beautiful end for the Eighth-Charley arc.
Charlotte
A bit of a disappointing send-off for Charley - and I just find it really hard to listen to the Cybermen's voices.
