Storyline

Left in charge by Sanders, Security Man Hindle - unhinged and in complete control of the two Kinda hostages - locks up the others while he primes the dome for a 50 mile perimeter of deforestation through acid and fire, having "reasoned out" that the trees and plants are a threat. Adric perpetrates a ruse to help the Doctor and Todd but is caught and about to be punished when Sanders returns, a changed man. Sanders bears a gift for Hindle - a box given him by a Kinda mystic elder, which may be dangerous and which the Doctor is forced to open. Meanwhile, Tegan is shown herself in the dream world and left to determine which of her selves is real. Written by statmanjeff

"I was beaten everyday when I was a boy, it didn't do me any harm." So-so Doctor Who.

Doctor Who: Kinda: Part 2 starts as the paranoid Hindle (Simon Rouse) takes the Doctor (Peter Davison), Adric (Matthew Waterhouse) & Todd (Nerys Hughes) prisoner. Meanwhile Tegan has been possessed by an evil entity known as a Mara...

This Doctor Who adventure was episode 10 from season 19 that aired here in the UK during early 1982, directed by Peter Grimwade I don't think much of Kinda. The script by Christopher Bailey is as dull as I've ever known Doctor Who, most of this episode seems to be of the Doctor walking from a control room to a cage & back again until one of the silliest cliffhanger endings where three people stuck in the cage are absolutely petrified to open a small wooden box. The character's are poor in Kinda too, no one seems to have any personality, presence or any real significance.

If the Kinda live in the open forest living off the land wouldn't they be a bit, well dirtier? The plastic tree which Tegan sits on looks really cheap just like the whole episode.

Kinda hasn't impressed me so far & it only has two more episodes to change my opinion.
