Largely a satisfying story.   The Vardan storyline was interesting enough in how for a couple episodes, you didn't understand the Doctor's intentions and erratic behavior.  The Time Lords were their usual stuffy, shifty selves with a couple of really good performances from John Arnatt as Borusa and Milton Johns as Kelner.  It was all ok until the Sontarans arrived...then the story went south.  Thank goodness it was for only two seemingly tacked-on episodes.  The dilapidated hospital serving as the TARDIS interior/corridors was simply awful.  I never believed it.  It only looks like what it is...a dilapidated hospital...not the clean white walls of a TARDIS.  

This serial had really good cliffhangers, too.

However, Leela 's departure was crap.  No other way to put it.  There was no set up or indication  anywhere in the story to indicate any romantic sparks between her and Andred.  None.  At all.  Anywhere.  Worst cop-out departure since Dodo.
