With Jack having left the team, the story begins with the Doctor incarcerated in a high-security prison on a space station for the murder of Tara. It is, of course, a fakeout to give the Doctor a chance to investigate the prison's suspicious rehabilitation methods. Things go wrong when Rose arrives in disguise and is unable to prevent the Doctor having his anger and darkest thoughts removed into a doppelganger called a sin eater. The sin eaters would be absolutely ridiculous in televised Doctor Who, but some how they work as in pen and ink, where the body horror is quite so bad. The whole story is built on well-worn science fiction tropes, but still somewhat entertaining.

The remainder of the volume pays off the plot of Jack Harkness losing his memories and the Doctor offering up the Mind of Time Lord plot is also paid off. Once again the Doctor is held in captivity for much of the story as four alien agents attempt to bid on his brain. The Doctor is able to defeat his enemies with his grief (not unlike a plot twist in an episode of Class). Tara ends up staying behind to help a devastated planet, freeing up the Doctor, Rose, and Jack to return to Cardiff to meet up with Mickey and Margaret. ( )

This is the fourth, and hopefully not final, installment in the Ninth Doctor's adventures with Jack and Rose. Of the four so far, this was definitely my favorite. It's a bit more gruesome in parts than you'd expect from Doctor Who, but it's terrific fun. ( )
