A game of two halves

WWW feels very much like the first half of a classic who: setting the story, introducing everyone, getting us ready for the action in the second half. WWW on it's own is not great just good, lets hope part two delivers. No pressure!

Satisfying Conclusion

"All praise to the Great One."

The snappy, great-sounding production continues here in Worldwide Web, the conclusion of The Eight Truths. We start to get some great sparring between Lucie and her... possessor here, and the nostalgia-fest continues.

Sanjeev Bhaskar's Avishka is a great character, assisting the Doctor from his post almost all the way through, and Stephen Moore makes an interesting choice for the character of Clark Goodman, the repentant creator of the Eightfold Truth cult and its prophecies.

The way the Headhunter finally shifts direction, and her final actions, are a bit of a stretch and don't really add up. Even less believable is that Lucie is able to do something psychically, basically, that the Headhunter couldn't, though this was apparently due to abilities temporarily gained from her contact with her... possessor. And the Doctor's subsequent gushing over the Headhunter's "courageous" action doesn't ring very true either. This stuff serves to knock the rating down a bit, but Worldwide Web is a great conclusion nonetheless.
