The Final Story

The last entry in The Time Travellers series is a good old-fashioned Murder on the Orient Express kind of story. The duo are on a train to see the sights, but Alice (Ace), typically, is bored by the whole thing. At this point in future history, a long space war is over, but those who fought the war still do not trust each other. So, there are some depictions of racism for the audience to get worked up about along with Alice. In the meantime, people start dying. The Domine (The Professor), posing as a doctor, becomes the de facto detective. We get the return of a character from the Ghosts episode of the series, but this is earlier in her history than in The Time Travellers' history, pointing out once again the ethical difficulties of time travel. It's a decent murder mystery story with some bits of moral lecturing, and a big emotional outburst from Alice at the end (you knew with Ace there had to be one) that does not quite make sense to me.
