The doors to the police box (not the Tardis) open inward on several occasions, even when the police try to follow the Doctor. In reality, police box doors opened outwards. The police officers should have known this. See more »

It feels so final, but so fresh.
8 September 2020 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

The Doctor and Adric take a trip to Logopolis, he also learns of the harrowing events back on Traken, how The Master took over the body of poor Tremas.

Christopher Bidmead shows us here that he definitely had the ability to write a cracking story for the show. It is so imaginative, it's literally bursting with themes and ideas, and yet it's all so cohesive, we've never before had a TARDIS inside another, we've never before had an attempt to land the TARDIS at the bottom of the ocean.

There is never an escape from that feeling of finality, every time The Doctor gets into the action he is reminded of his fate by The Watcher. It is so good.

A nice role for Tom Georgeson as the perplexed Detective. It takes an age to see Anthony Ainley, but that laugh is so creepy, it works so well. I love the shots of Tegan's terror, they look great.

Tom is absolutely brilliant, he gives a marvellous performance here, his charisma is limitless, it's very, very sincere, no attempt to get the laughs in here.

Tegan shouts a lot, no change there then. Lovely to see Nyssa.

You can see where the influence for Flatline cane from.

Brilliant again, 9/10.
