Everyone Susan Campbell cared about has gone. Most of them died in the second Dalek invasion, and her grandfather never visits. She's living in what used to be Coal Hill School, helping Earth rebuild again.

Then, one night, she's called away to help with an emergency. A piece of appropriated Dalek technology is malfunctioning, and everyone's afraid of what it might do...

This is just the first in a sequence of predicaments facing Susan - and the connection between them will shape the rest of her life.

All Hands on Deck is perhaps one of the most thought-provoking and heart-breaking stories ever released by Big Finish. The success of the piece is of course down to solid script from Robson, fantastic narration from Ford and tight direction from Lisa Bowerman. 9/10

Blogtor Who

Carole Anne Ford has always done a splendid job of performing as an older Susan, and All Hands on Deck manages to be tragic and beautiful all at the same time. It’s one of this year’s best Short Trips in a really strong year.

We Are Cult

Eddie Robson has written Susan so brilliantly that you get the opportunity to revel in her intellect, kindness, compassion and skill. Within the first five minutes, Susan would be making her grandfather, the Doctor, very proud. 88%

This is the kind of thing Short Trips were made for. To tell a great character piece that complements the Doctor and companions involved. 9/10

Indie Mac User

Robson, without any heavy-handedness or even specific mention, evokes these points of memory along Susan’s lifetime in the writing, and Ford knocks them out of the park. This is a very special Susan story. Get it. Get it now. It will fill one of those gaps in the universe of Potential for you, and leave you saddened and satisfied in equal measure.
