Goofs

During the climactic scene, after the Doctor has exited the van, the Master approaches him, holding a pistol which he keeps aimed downwards. He comments on the Doctor's "odd mode of transport", then the view cuts to a close-up of him from the front. Suddenly, he is aiming his pistol straight. See more »

The Mind Bending Plot of Evil
25 September 2014 | by (South Wales, UK) – See all my reviews

Review of all 6 episodes:

This story starts really well with an intriguing and gritty opening episode but it fades a bit as it goes along. That is due partly to the fact it is rather padded out to fill the 6 parts. Following on from a tight four-parter it is a pity this one was not similarly pared down. More important though is the fact, as with a few other stories, that in order perhaps to pad things out there is a rather complex and not fully credible plot. The plan hatched by The Master is too convoluted and not entirely sensible. As a result it loses its initial promise of being a really brilliant story and becomes a rather average one.

The story involves The Master having a mind controlling machine which extracts evil from criminals, a prison take- over, a world peace conference and an attempt to steal a powerful missile. It is very enjoyable but if it had been 4 parts with some of the convoluted plan cut out to make it more credible it could have been better.
