Storyline

The Doctor reunites with the Red Kangs to question why no one questions the steady number of deaths at Paradise Towers. Elsewhere, Mel meets the Blue Kangs who reveal that Pex, the lone young male in the complex (who talks a good game while flanking Mel), is not nearly the heroic and capable fighter he continually boasts of being.

Whatever you think, it boasts a cracking cliffhanger
28 April 2017 | by (Swansea, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The Chief Caretaker has condemned the Doctor to death, and questions arise as to the identity of The Great Architect, Kroagnon. The Doctor has to find a way of escaping the Caretakers, while Mel learns some uncomfortable truths about new friend Pex, and ends up discovering the darker side of the Rezzies.

I may be slightly generous with a score of seven, but that's primarily for the cliffhanger, one I remember vividly from my childhood, possibly the best one there had been for some time. The fact that two sweet old ladies turn into something so sinister and nasty is brilliantly realised, when something mundane and everyday becomes frightening. Not even sure they'd get away with doing that now.

On the downside, the Caretakers have become even more absurd, and are totally sending the show up, and almost poking fun at the show. As for Pex what can you say? Nice muscles I guess.

Flawed, cheap looking, but that cliffhanger makes an impact 7/10
