Abysmal

Utter nonsense. A poor story, with the nice characters of Lady Peinforte and Richard as its saving grace, finishes up with a dose of gobbledegook and a convenient end. Luckily, Ace is a far better shot than the cybermen, to an absurd degree.

The DVD making-of extra is worth watching, primarily for writer Kevin Clarke's smug interview, in which he seems to be not only not ashamed of his work, but actually pleased with it. Nothing is explained at any stage, and one feels the scenes could easily be shown in any order and would still make as much sense. Anton Diffring's opinion of this is well documented, but it is still astonishing that any of the actors or technicians could sit around rehearsing and making this nonsense without actually standing up and pointing out that it would be an embarrassment to all concerned and perhaps they had better just stop now.

As an attempt to entertain it is a failure. As an attempt to commemorate the 25th anniversary of a once-brilliant show, it is an insult.
