Trivia

In the original script, Lexa had simply vanished from the action once she had served her purpose within the narrative. Christopher H. Bidmead suggested her act of self-sacrifice as a more dramatic end for the character. See more »

User Reviews

 
It's not the best final episode.
23 February 2020 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

Meglos puts The dodecahedron to use together with the screens, the aim is to destroy Tigella.

There is an air of silliness about this last episode, the same fate as The Leisure Hive, with the narrative losing focus, and too much emphasis on the visuals as opposed to the story. Almost as if they had lots of ideas, but were unsure of what do do with them in the limited time. The episode feels loose somehow.

Once again Tom is very, very good, he's sincere and incredibly charismatic.

Some good special effects, the two versions of Tom together look great, some not so good, The CSO looks poor at times, Tom looks almost invisible in some scenes. The music to round it off is different, love it.

It's ok, just a bit silly, 5/10.
