Slightly contrived with a twist in the tail
28 July 2018 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

I know that other reviewers have complained at the derivative story line.However if you are looking for originality this is not the series to be viewing.Anyway sitting in the 4/- seats at the local ABC you didn't really concern yourself with such trivialities.There is a good cast,with a particularly welcome cameo by William Hartnell.The story may be convoluted but it's ending is worth waiting for.
