Ambitious story, Whovian frugality
7 April 2017 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

"Time-flight" (parts 1-4) finds The Doctor, Nyssa and Tegan, and two Concorde jets transported through a time contour to a primordial Earth when a crashed starship contains the essence of a long vanished race, which has split into "good" and "evil" manifestations due to the arrival of the Master, who is having TARDIS troubles. Due a convenient "psychokinetic field ", Triassic Earth frequently resembles Heathrow, which is good because when it does not, it seems to be made up of the Styrofoam rocks that are so frequently found around TARDIS touchdowns. The Master inexplicably disguises himself as some kind of fat Fu Manchu for the first two chapters and then threatens people, already frightened by grey blob-aliens who cause people to disappear (somehow involving soap bubbles), with his shrink ray. Needless to say that The Doctor outwits him and gives the alien gestalt a new hope. Overall: an overly-complex story with lots of talk, little action and dodgy optical effects – typical of Davison's tenure. Mostly for fans, mostly.
