well i guess it was an amusing episode. halfway through the season bit of light relief before it all goes dark and sinister. one of these days i'm going to have a who marathon and watch everything from the first episode of season one right through including all the behind the scenes shows and specials and outtakes. though i already know my favourite story is the impossible planet/the satan pit. it really managed to capture the sci-fi feel and create decent amounts of tension. very much in the way Tom baker era stories did. the characters were all well drawn and the casting was excellent. it just worked perfectly. it had a 1950's b movie sci-fi feel. but the better kind of b movie like forbidden planet.
