PI: How amusing to have Tony and Cassandra posing as a lovesick couple going on holiday together. It means that they can indulge in some physical interplay that they have clearly been longing to do ever since they were reacquainted but without any consequences. Apparently he has been calling upon her more recently rather than the other way around. Whilst the two of them are dancing Tony admits there is no one he would rather have with him solving these disturbing cases and even proposes a holiday together in England. Is he starting to go soft on Cassandra? The succubus attempts to poison Tony against Cassandra by reminding him of Angelique's murderous past but he remains steadfast in his dealing with the ghost.
Witch: Cassandra really has to hold her tongue when one passenger swears that the ghost is probably a witch casting a spell and elaborates about how vengeful and ugly they are. They might have set down some pretty clear ground rules about their investigations but it is clear from Cassandra's 'do what I like' attitude that she is in charge. She has to spell out to Tony that Cassandra is just a cover for who she really is but admits that with him she has found something she has never had before: a friend. She doesn't want to ruin that by turning their working relationship into a romantic one. It's been noticed that Cassandra has become too human, losing her powers too easily to a voodoo queen, failing to recover the amulet that she has been charged with protecting, stealing relics for herself, destroying ghosts, banshees and having fun. Whatever will the Dark Lord think?
Standout Performance: I'm not entirely sure why this story is a full cast drama given that the bulk of the work is still performed by Lacy and Parker, even some characters who aren't Tony and Cassandra. Don't get me wrong they give their usual strong performances but the additional actors that are brought in to bulk out the crew are only slightly utilized. Frankly the regulars could have played these roles (as they successfully managed in The Death Mask) with just as much efficiency.
Audio Landscape: Cheers, the ocean smashing against the harbour, ships horn, a ghastly scream, flicking through a book, a storm.
Standout Scene: The twist that there are two ghosts was entirely unsuspected, the phantom bride mourning the loss of George and Leona who is a ghost succubus, killing people in order to live again. It's typical, isn't it? You wait around for one ghost to appear in an audio series...and then two turn up at once!
