When Rhys’s elderly Uncle Bryn has a heart attack while listening to the shipping forecast, it seems like another routine death at Ivyday Nursing Home. But when Rhys and Gwen go to collect the old man’s effects, Gwen’s suspicions are roused by another elderly resident. The conversation is cut short, though, by a fire alarm, one of many consequences of the mysterious power cuts that are sweeping the nation. Gwen has a hunch that something is wrong and her search leads her to Miss Carew, a suspiciously fit and strong octogenarian who, despite having supposedly terminal heart disease, has left Ivyday and gone back to work at the Computer firm she used to run. Miss Carew has been offered a deal by Fitzroy, a wandering alien with an aversion to electricity who is looking for a home. It’s a deal that Miss Carew can’t refuse. But the consequences for planet Earth are unthinkable.
It wasn’t that interesting. I don’t remember any of it, really. Just that I was kind of bored listening to it. I’m sure there were good aspects to it, though!
This was the weakest of the three radio dramas from the Lost Files. It has great moments and I actually find the story very intriguing, but the execution of the storytelling was rather lacking. It felt like Jack and Ianto’s storyline was kinda pointless and also the rest was simply not very interesting.
