Storyline

Todd and the Doctor receive a telepathic invitation to visit the Kinda's blind matriarch and her ward in a cave. Meanwhile, Hinkle is finally set to reduce the dome to its "base chemical constituents" but stops to relax and build a toy city. Tegan is out cold after the snake tattoo of the Mara leaves her arm to possess Aris, giving Aris voice and, through it, the ability to lead his people to their destruction. Written by statmanjeff

So-so Doctor Who story.

Doctor Who: Kinda: Part 3 starts as the Doctor (Peter Davison) & Todd (Nerys Hughes) manages to escape the dome & head into the forest to find Tegan (Janet Fielding), however they are confronted by the Kinda & taken to Panna (Mary Morris) a blind prophet who talks about the end of time as Aris (Adrian Mills) who is still possessed by the Mara sets about putting his evil plan in action...

This Doctor Who adventure was episode 11 from season 19 that aired here in the UK during early 1982, directed by Peter Grimwade this is pretty lifeless & dull storytelling. The script by Christopher Bailey has been a total bore so far, it's a bit of a mess with poor character's, ropey dialogue & a distinct lack of action. The Doctor isn't that involved in anything, Tegan hasn't moved from the same spot for three episodes, Adric is as annoying as ever & there is yet again another really poor cliffhanger ending to this episode. There's an all round lack of fun here that most of the best Doctor Who stories have.

There's been a few dream like hallucination sequences which come across as silly looking, there hasn't been any special effects so far apart from a snake tattoo traveling from one person to another & there hasn't been any monsters either.

Kinda has been a disappointment so far & it's not a story which I'm particularly fond of.
