Galaxy 4: Part 3 - Good story with good regular cast performances.
19 August 2014 | by (South Wales, UK) – See all my reviews

Review for all 4 parts:

Galaxy 4 is a four part story beginning with Four Hundred Dawns.

This is a sort of run-of-the-mill adventure but it is well acted, especially by the regular cast and neatly scripted. Overall the story is presented very well and has some interesting ideas such as appearances proving to be deceptive. Most aspects are done effectively enough with a decent performance from leaders of the two rival alien races.

The development of the Doctor's new companions continues to create great interest. Steven is one of my favourite companions and Purves' performance in the part is establishing the character really well by this stage. The way the Doctor, Steven and Vicki interact and deal with situations provides a lot of quality.

The story is no classic but is a pretty well executed adventure all round. All 4 episodes 8/10.
