Brilliant debut for The Doctor's best companion Sarah Jane Smith and also for the Sontarans.
12 November 2014 | by (South Wales, UK) – See all my reviews

Review of all 4 episodes:

This marks the first appearance of a Sontaran in Doctor Who. A race of alien warrior that would become an icon in the show right up to the present day. The design and realisation of the Sontaran in this debut is absolutely superb. Kevin Lindsay puts in a great performance as Sontaran warrior Linx and the costume, make-up and original design are of top quality.

The story is a 'pseudo-historical' where much of it is set in England in the time of Richard I (1189-1199 AD) with Linx having been stranded there by his damaged spacecraft but able to drag scientists from 1970s England back to force them to help him fix his craft. The Doctor follows back to the 1100s in the TARDIS along with stowaway journalist Sarah Jane Smith who becomes The Doctor's long serving companion. Her debut is great, with Elizabeth Sladen's wonderful performance giving a taste of how she would become the most enduring and most loved companion The Doctor ever has. She manages to be strong and independent but gentle and feminine at the same time.

There is a lot of great fun, action and great scripting along the way with only a few less successful scenes. This is a brilliantly entertaining story with a great new companion and a great new alien menace.
