The Day God Went Mad
8 December 2014 | by See all my reviews

Review of all 4 episodes:

A proposed title for this story was The Day God Went Mad and that is a good title for any story as well as a pretty good name for this adventure. It involves The Doctor arriving on a planet which he has visited before, but does not remember at first, and slowly realising he has somehow come to be thought of as a God by the people there following his actions on his previous visit. That premise is extremely interesting in itself, contemplating the aftermath and consequences of The Doctor's interventions on other worlds. There is a lot more to this story too, including the character Leela who becomes The Doctor's new companion. Following Sarah Jane is the toughest act to follow of all but Leela is a brilliant and different type of companion, being a tough and fiery young woman from a tribal civilisation with violent tendencies.

The first two episodes are an absolutely fascinating, engaging and brilliantly written story which has you really intrigued. The final two episodes are really good with some good thrills and plenty of interest but I felt the outcomes were not quite as fully satisfying as the wonderful build up caused me to expect.

Great adventure in a great season.
