Quotes

The Doctor: Well, look at me. I'm old, lacking in vigor, my mind's in a turmoil. I no longer know if I'm coming, or've gone, or even been. I'm falling to pieces. I no longer even have any clothes sense.
Peri Brown: Oh, stop feeling sorry for yourself!
The Doctor: Self-pity is all I have left.

Perfect entertainment
9 November 2018 | by ThebuddahofsuburbiaSee all my reviews

Part 3 is an even bigger mess than the last two episodes however it is insanely mesmerizing and absolutely hilarious (One of the best comedies I've seen in years) Colin Baker holds the whole thing together managing to give a very good performance (especially considering the material he was given to work with). I'd rather watch something amazingly terrible than something boring or forgettable.
