Review of all 5 episodes:

This story begins with an absolutely fantastic episode which is Doctor Who at its very best. The atmospheric, eerie goings on and brilliantly believable characterisations exude sheer class. The acting, production values and writing are of the highest standard. This excellence continues as the story continues although the middle part of the story is slightly more variable in a way as there are moments that are not perfectly executed and parts that are less well thought through than the magnificent best aspects of the story. However, there is enough really great stuff going on all the way through to keep every episode at top marks even if some just scrape into that classic category while other episodes are just fabulous in every way. The Doctor and the UNIT team are at their absolute peak with engaging and funny performances all round.

The story involves magic versus science with The Master using black magic incantations to summon an ancient and ultra-powerful being to try to conquer the Earth. There is a sleepy English village, a mysterious barrow, a stone gargoyle coming to life to attack, an enormous cloven-hooved being, a wonderful white witch, an impressively exploding church, a terrific cameo by a cynically gritty but amusing archaeologist and an effete but also realistic TV crew.

Magic is in the air in more ways than one!
