Storyline

The Doctor needs to stop Adric from siding with Monarch and get Bigon quietly restored (who was mechanically lobotomized for previously siding with the Doctor). The ship then gets turned into one big multi-cultural dance party so the Doctor can make a desperate leap for the TARDIS, floating just outside the spaceship, and stop Monarch's plans for Earth.

Trivia

Nyssa's sudden fainting spell at the end of the story was a throwback to the style of serial transition often employed during the First Doctor era. In this case, the reason for Nyssa's sudden collapse is revealed at the start of Doctor Who: Kinda: Part One (1982). See more »

Flat as a Panoptican Pankcake
17 August 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Not a highlight amongst Peter Davison's otherwise solid turn as the Doctor. This story is flat, empty and commits the worst cardinal sin, it's boring. So little happens until the last episode and even then, its all over so quickly and easily. The space jaunt is a little embarrassing, even for the times.

The companions are solid enough, whiny Adric, cute and efficient Nyssa and loud mouth Tegan, who at least has some passion. The rest of the cast are as dull as robotic frogs. There's some embarrassing moments, such as the glee demonstrated when the Doctor reaches the Tardis.

There's barely enough story for two episodes, let alone four. About the only redeeming feature is the production design. The walls look great as does the (overused) King's Throne.

I love Davison's Doctor, but I wish I hadn't bought this on DVD.

Fortunately, there's many better stories than this.
