Anniversary Waltz! Pertwee, Troughton and Hartnell interplay creates some magic.
12 October 2014 | by (South Wales, UK) – See all my reviews

Review of all 4 episodes:

This story marked the 10th anniversary of the series and it is a pretty good birthday party as all three actors who had played The Doctor appear and have dialogue together. It is their interplay which adds the magic to this adventure.

The storyline involves a legendary Time Lord, Omega, who is trapped in a world of antimatter inside a Black Hole which he created to bring the power of time travel to the Time Lords. He has been there for a very long time and has become mad with bitterness and rage at being 'left' trapped after giving the Time Lords their powers by his ingenuity and bravery. Over the vast time he has been trapped he has developed ways to attack the known universe and the Time Lords using antimatter. The Time Lords realise The Doctor may be able to fight Omega and to increase his chances they allow his two previous incarnations to cross into their own future so that the three Doctors can combine their intellect and battle Omega. The first Doctor (Hartnell) is caught in a 'time eddy' so cannot physically join them but he is able to communicate with the 2nd and 3rd Doctors. They bicker and banter but along with Jo and Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart they bravely pool their efforts to save the universe.

The production in general is very good but not necessarily really great in every respect. The blob monsters serving Omega are the worst example of the imperfections to be found. However the magic touch from the three Doctors make this something special. The dialogue is beautifully written and Hartnell, Troughton and Pertwee are all marvellous. The scripting and performance of all their scenes together is terrific and often very amusing. There is also an epic quality to the storyline with the universe being threatened and the involvement of the Time Lords and their legendary hero turned adversary Omega.

An enjoyable romp with some superb work from the 3 tremendous actors who made Doctor Who's first 10 years so fantastic.
