One of the best Doctor Who stories ever, in my opinion.

It's full of deception, political intrigue, paranoia, seeds of war, the return of the Master, fascinating new aliens, returning old ones, and rich new characters you don't know if you can trust or not. Better still...the real truth behind this political plot for war isn't revealed until the very end of the story, leading directly into the next serial for it's conclusion. A perfect storm of sci-fi drama and a high water mark for the series. I can't gush about this one enough.

I have to say that I thought the Draconians' makeup and costumes were superb - one of the best in the entire series. It's a pity we never saw the them again. They were a quite interesting and noble race.

Sadly, this would be the last appearance of Roger Delgado as the Master. He was killed in a car crash several months later.

This is one of the very best and one of my all time favorites. I could watch this one every week.

A great story and one of my new favourites! This is rather like a political thriller. There's action, the danger of war, there's drama and it flows at a nice fast pace which meant I never lost interest.

The Master is a gem in this story. I am really sad that this is the last time I will ever get to see new footage of Delgado (well, new for me anyway, I haven't watched these stories before!), it truly is a tragedy that we lost him at such an early age. Roger Delgado is the Master and I don't think I'll be able to enjoy the other incarnations of him quite as much as I have enjoyed Delgado's, even with John Simm being my first. Once again, Delgado gave an excellent performance in this story, one of his best.

Great story. One of the best of Pertwee's era.

4/5 Very Happy
