A very straightforward Lovecraftian horrors-from-beyond-the-dawn-of-time story, with a few nice character moments for Ace as she unusually gets to take on the compassionate and nurturing role. It feels a bit tame after the continuity pyrotechnics of the previous two 7th Doctor stories, but still enjoyable.

Jean-marcel On the other hand I almost loved this one. Weird Tales is one of my favourite things in the whole world, and I've always wanted to see Who go completely off the deep end into Lovecraft/Clark Ashton Smith territory: lost, ancient civilisations inimical to human life, madmen driven by quests to unearth unnameable horrors, languages that cannot be spoken, hybrid creatures, bizarre alien architecture...yes indeed, it's all here. Your'e right, it's all very traditional, but hardly ever has it been done with such style. I didn't really know what to make of the Americans though; they didn't quite seem like 1930s "yanks" to me...especially the guy talking about "white supremacists"...I really don't think anyone would have said that in 1936 or whenever this was supposed to take place. Still, great play for me.
