Given the general way in which credits had been handled on the first parts of major story arcs up to this point in the magazine's history, it is somewhat unusual that this story doesn't specifically credit an editor.
Though the magazine had been using the JNT-era logo on the front cover since issue #46, and the cover to issue #48 was the first to feature a photograph of the Fourth Doctor from the 18th season, this story offered the comic debut of the JNT-era "look" for the Fourth Doctor.

In Leviathan, Azal and his crew are trying to map out the boundaries of the universe itself. Four years into their journey Leviathan hits a rough patch of space.

At first his crew believes that perhaps they've found the edge of the universe, but instead it's a border between parallel dimensions. He leaves his ship and walks out onto the void to try to determine its qualities.

There he encounters another Azal, apparently from another dimension. When he reaches out to "himself", his double does the same. THe two appear to merge into one being as they get close enough to each other. He believes he has been turned into an immortal as he reaches a point on the void where the two Alals become one whole being.

But it is at this very spot that he can also hear the two Leviathan crews calling out to him. He ponders which one to go to. Which needs him more? The decision freezes him in place, as he debates the question. Looking around, he sees other beings in the void with him, all with similar questions, and all doing very little to resolve the matter.

Like flies in ointment, they are ostensibly caught in the metaphorical glass of a mirror.

The story concludes with him, like the others that have been there for thousands of years, caught just inside a mirror, unsure whether to go forward towards the reflection, or backwards towards the source.

Lloyd's writing credit here is specifically for "additional dialogue".
