Critical reception[edit]

Matt Michael reviewed the play favourably for Doctor Who Magazine. Paul Simpson of Sci-Fi Bulletin was more restrained, calling it a "throwback" to the late 1980s. Both the reviewers noted the inclusion of Cartmelisms, particularly animal rights, although Michael found that this was handled more subtly than might have been expected.[1][2]
