Storyline

Closing in on the goal of time travel, the Androgum and Sontarans get set to double-cross each other. With Peri and Jamie alternately in danger of winding up on the bill of fare, the decision is made to genetically transform Doctor No. 2 into an insatiably carnivorous Androgum, which causes Doctor No. 6 to develop a sudden taste for house cats as he races to not let this change become permanent.

Pushes the boundaries.
7 August 2018 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

I will give credit to John Nathan Turner for trying to push the limits of horror and scares, Revelation was very dark, and this perhaps has the darkest moment in classic Who's history.

I really did like Robert Holmes's script, it's clever, loaded with treachery and deceit, it flows well and moves very quickly.

The scenes between Baker and Troughton are great fun, each brings something out of the other, the tetchy Doctor and the space hobo. Best scene has to be where Chessene fails to fight off her Androgum roots and succumbs to The Doctor's blood, they'd never get away with that now, nor Shockeyes demise. The show's darker tones are confirmed by the unnecessary death of Oscar.

The restaurant scenes are also fun, and that's all down to the comic genius of Patrick Troughton, he's fantastic. The scenes out and about in glorious Spain look fabulous.

Baker is excellent here, a very strong outing, his personality and charisma shine through. However, It's Jacqueline Pearce once again though that I find steals the scenes.

All that for a TARDIS. 9/10
