"Secrets of the Medjai" truly earns its place as a subtitle
This episode does incredibly well to squeeze an awful lot of plot, characterisation, history and significant revelations into a bare twenty minutes. Yanit and Fadil have always been at the very top of my "friends for Alex" list, and they are both used to excellent effect here. Particularly compelling is the start of Alex's relationship with Yanit, who very quickly proves to be an important friend and ally in many ways; Alex and Yanit working together so excellently to save the day must surely be seen as a very significant sequence of events in the context of the series as a whole, at least potentially. Inevitably, there are some contrivances and conveniences in the writing, mainly the Flames of Eternal Darkness and the bridge that tries to kill you if you have male genitalia, but the inclusion of these is completely justifiable and works as well as it needs to.
