Focusing more on the moral issues of the surrounding cast this is a strong "traditional" doctor who, dealing with the cost and risks of immortality are nothing new but with a strong cast and good story an enjoyable listen

Immortal Beloved goes where many have gone before. The idea of switching bodies, the ethical questions that come with that, as the consciousness of the previous occupant is snuffed out, and the renewal of bodily vitality, are familiar concepts. Immortal Beloved throws a conjecture on human cloning into the mix. This is another exploration of identity, a search for the soul, and a questioning of traditional ways. While there's a lot of familiar territory here, there is also uncertainty about just how it will all come out in the end. That suspense, along with fine performances from all of the actors, makes for an entertaining 50-minute story.

Doctor 8 and Lucie arrive on a planet just in time to prevent a pair of lovers from jumping off a cliff. Thus begins Immortal Beloved, in which the remnants of an Earth colony have devolved into a quasi- ancient Greek culture sustained by endless cloning of the elite, who fashion themselves as the gods of old. It is an intriguing enough premise and perhaps may have been better given the 90-minute treatment to explore the consequences of the ideas. As it is, at 60 minutes Immortal Beloved feels a bit rushed.
