Contemporary Earth setting with military backup, this adventure is a preview of the Third Doctor style of the 70s
19 August 2014 | by (South Wales, UK) – See all my reviews

Review of all 4 episodes:

This story was set on a contemporary Earth for the first time for a whole story. It really foreshadows the later style of Doctor Who in the John Pertwee era. One companion of the Doctor exits in part 2 (Dodo) and he acquires two new young and trendy companions Polly and Ben who are introduced for the youth of the day to have someone they really relate to alongside the Doctor. Both of them work very well and the Doctor continues as strongly as ever.

The plot itself is not completely well thought through in some aspects and has some issues which detract from its quality such as the machines not being that impressive but taken as a whole it is a very good and exciting adventure exploring issues of machines taking over which were very prominent at the time. It has strong dialogue, good action and good acting.
