Storyline

Incorporating the Xeraphin race into his TARDIS power system, the Master has won, but technical obstacles and a bit of sabotage from friendlies give the Doctor a bargaining chip for the lives of the hijacked and enslaved airline passengers and crews - with maybe, just maybe, some hope for the Xeraphin race as well.

If it was a flight, it would have a twelve hour delay.

The fight to stop The Master escaping with his newly powered TARDIS is on.

It's clunky, that's the only word I can think that sums it up, the dialogue, sets and general production are all so wooden. The extras just stand around blank, you'd have thought after the events they'd have been screaming and shouting. The cast at times are all stood in straight lines, like a choir, you expect a chorus of o come all ye faithful.

There are a lot of scenes where The Doctor and Tegan are literally running around the set, an attempt to pad it out I guess. The best part being where The TARDIS's of The Doctor and Master attempt to land at the same time.

The TARDIS looks very battered, end of season lack of funds perhaps, I like it looking disheveled, unfortunately at times it looks wobbly.

I've given it relatively low scores, but I have fond memory associated with Time-Flight, and I watch it more frequently than many others, I've tried to give it as honest an opinion as possible.

Overall, it's hard not to have a slight admiration for Time-Flight, they tried to make an ambitious four part story, but hadn't the funds or technology to make it. It began quite well, with an atmospheric first episode, telling the story of a vanishing Concorde, sadly after that it was all downhill.

A poor final part. 4/10
