Trivia

Leela is left-handed, or at least writes with her left hand. Louise Jameson is right-handed, but chose to make Leela a left-handed writer in order to increase her awkwardness at this task. See more »

User Reviews

A highly entertaining and fun story
31 December 2019 | by DoctorThotcerSee all my reviews

Seeing this for the first time, thanks to BritBox, I must say it's rather a forgotten gem.

The story is convoluted, the main action a bit silly, and the sets, costumes and effects vary wildly from nicely realised to blummin ridiculous, sometimes in the same scene, but there's model work a-plenty, big silver spaceships, timelord trans-dimensional trickery, the very first appearance of K9, and a giant alien prawn with aspirations far beyond being tossed in any Thousand Island dressing.

It's not a particularly sciencey bit of science fiction, but it's certainly entertaining.
