Five rounds rapid.
9 February 2019 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

Overall this really is a quality adventure for Pertwee and Manning, a story of huge ideas, with a real threat in the form of Azal. I love the costumes, and I certainly applaud them for pushing the boundaries, this will have been a story that caused uproar in different quarters.

If I'm honest I found the conclusion of this great story somewhat of a disappointment, we have a force, that can keep a Master at the top of his game, kept in check by this being, beautifully described in an earlier episode as an all powerful being. The trouble is, this supreme force is undone by one of the corniest conclusions ever, it felt, in part lifted from Fury from The Deep.

I enjoyed the UNIT involvement, The Brigadier and co are on top form, the classic scene where they deal with Bok.

Overall it's a classic. It deserved another episode perhaps. 7/10
