All-time classic and another high-water mark for the Third Doctor's debut season - if not all of his tenure.

An otherwise long story cleverly broken up by a trip to an alternate universe where the worst eventually happens - with evil, sadistic alternative versions of some of our heroes! The Primord's makeup looks more like a green werewolf than anything else, but what does it matter when the story is sooooo good?!

Sadly, this is the last story to feature Liz Shaw. She leaves the series between seasons so she isn't even given a farewell. She is mentioned in the first episode in the next year to have gone back to Cambridge.

Bye, Liz. Rest in peace, Carry. Thanks for everything. Sad

It just gets better, doesn't it? Loved this story. By no means is the 'evil alternate universe' a new concept, but it sure is awesome to see, especially when it's of characters we know and love. There were great scenes for everyone, especially 'Brigade Leader Lethbridge-Stewart' and 'Section Leader Elizabeth Shaw'. Razz

It's annoying that this is all we get of Liz. She's my favourite of Pertwee's companions. She was a feisty, free-thinking and intelligent woman that I imagine was a great role model to young female viewers. I wish she'd had more time on the show. However, I'm glad that all of her time on the show is not only a full collection of brilliant stories but also brilliant displays of her character and Caroline John's great talent of acting. She is certainly missed, both on screen and off.

4 stars. Very Happy
