Storyline

With carnage and decay all about the space station, Doctor No. 6 and Peri continue to avoid the automated defense system trying to kill them, but there's also something alive lurking about with an eye on them as well. Evidence suggests the Time Lords are responsible for all this, but the Doctor refuses to believe it. He may be wrong, and he also fears a pinhole has been poked into the bubble that is the universe, with total and unstoppable annihilation to follow. Far away, Doctor No. 2 is about to be dissected by the Sontarans and the Androgum in order to find the symbiotic nuclei that makes time travel for Time Lords possible. Written by statmanjeff

So many good elements, a cracking episode.
7 August 2018 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

A very dark episode, with plenty of torture and malevolence. The second episode is a great continuation, with plenty going on, some wonderful villainery and of course the excellent location work.

I much prefer the classic Sontarans to those from New Who, which somehow look wrong. Though once again, it's Jacqueline Pearce that steals the show, Chessene is a great villain, so well acted.

The performances in general are great, Troughton is a joy to watch as always. Laurence Payne excellent also, such a classy actor, who gave real gravitas to the character of Dastari.

I like the story, I love the idea of a group of scientists trying to get the ideas for time travel. The whole reason for Chessene's being, it's clever.

The Spanish setting adds a degree of quality to the episodes, the sunlight, sounds of nature give it a different feel, effects that simply cannot be generated in a studio bound episode.

Oscar and Anita are interesting characters, perhaps he's not to be taken too seriously, but he's fun.
