The Space Museum: Episode 4 - Very interesting first episode followed by 3 very disappointing episodes
12 August 2014 | by (South Wales, UK) – See all my reviews

Review for all 4 parts:

This adventure has a reputation for going downhill after its excellent first episode. I can see why as that is exactly what happens. It has the brilliantly interesting idea of the time travelling crew questioning how their actions can alter a future they have glimpsed but episodes 2 to 4 are pretty poor in many ways.

The TARDIS crew debate whether to act one way or another or even to do nothing, not knowing what actions may save them from the fate they have seen ahead in their future. This creates much interest in Episode 1 whilst the rest of the episodes are more or less just a pretty boring adventure to see what their final fate will be. The standard is far below the first part of the story. This is largely due to the awful acting of the main villain and his fellow 'Moroks' who are all very wooden. The Moroks are truly embarrassing.

All in all the adventure has one very good idea which it set up really well in episode 1 but then being badly let down by the rest of the story.
