Gwen Cooper turns up on Martha Jones’s doorstep with a dead body in tow. She needs to ask one final favour of her. And to find out why they stopped being friends.

A lot’s happened to Torchwood since Martha left. A lot’s happened to Martha since she left Torchwood. And there’s something very odd about the dead body Gwen’s brought with her.

Tonight Gwen’s going to be getting more answers than she bargained for.

    It’s so good to hear from Martha Jones again!
    The story has a very good setting to do a character study of Martha post-Doctor Who. And I liked it. In particular, I loved Martha’s rant…but I may be biased because Gwen nagging Martha was annoying me.
    The dynamics between Gwen and Martha is really well written and the actresses give great performances. But I’m definitely more of a Martha in these types of situation and Gwen was a bit too forceful for my taste so I sympathised with Martha.

    If I’m being honest, I found the character resolution to be a bit abrupt. I still like it though because it ties the different existing pieces of canon up together in a very nice way.

    I really liked the production in this audio. The sound editing/sound effects in particular created a really good atmosphere…I mean a creepy one…but it’s a creepy story so it works! The pacing in this story was really good as well.

    Loved hearing Martha and Gwen team up! I like Martha’s characterization and there was some funny banter I enjoyed. The conflict was interesting. It wasn’t what I was expecting but it’s still an interesting story and the ending was nice.
