A story which starts as a promising political allegory but turns into a filler.
18 September 2014 | by (South Wales, UK) – See all my reviews

Review of all 4 episodes:

The first episode is, in my opinion, a lot better than this story's reputation would lead you to expect. It comes across as an intelligently scripted, interesting political allegory. The story features the humanoid Gonds being exploited by a strange alien race known as the Krotons. This is the first script from future Doctor Who writing legend Robert Holmes and his talent is already starting to show in episode 1. However his talent is less visible in episodes 2-4. Another great talent and Doctor Who legend involved is Philip Madoc as Eelek. His great acting skills are not fully utilised but, of course, he portrays his part perfectly.

After the strong start the following three episodes turn into just a slightly bland, not particularly interesting 'filler' between more meaty stories in the season.

The final verdict has to be this is a mild disappointment, taken as a whole, after a promising 1st part.
