It is stimulating to communicate for once with something other than a limited and unpredictable organic intelligence.
What did you just say? With something other?
Affirmative. I have been communicating with my own kind.

The Doctor's been kidnapped by the Shadow, henchman of the Black Guardian, the Doctor's deadly foe on the Key to time mission. The Doctor outsmarts him, so he moves on to Princess Astra, coercing her by threatening her love interest Merak. The Doctor, K-9, Romana, Merak and Shapp end up on Zeos. K-9 is communicated with the head of the Zeon fleet, machine kind. We discover there are no Zeons on Zeos, just a battle computer. The computer 'Mentalis' seems to have control over K-9, whilst the Marshall is preparing to attack an unarmed Zeos.
The Shadow is a little bit of a rubbish foe, a bit dim and a bit of a ranting nut job, when he says to the Doctor 'do you think i'm a fool?' huge shouts of YES.
More silliness, even the music has become silly in parts. Sometimes the case with a 6 parter is that they can feel padded in parts, as the material goes a wee bit flat, sadly it has here, it's a bit of a non event episode, still a pretty good standard though.
