Summary

A planetary ecological disaster! An incurable, disfiguring genetic disease....

Aliens in breach of galactic law! Nyssa under arrest! The TARDIS inoperable! The Doctor facing interrogation! Another situation of dire peril is unfolding for the Doctor and his companion.

However, what if it is not clear who is right and who is wrong? Who is ugly and who is beautiful? Where does the story begin, and where does it end? Sometimes it is all a matter of perspective.

Written and directed by Nicholas Briggs.

Interesting Tale, Intriguingly Told, Excellent End

The choppy narrative not only disguises a straightforward story but adds to the sense of disconnect from events the Dr and Nysa feel as the tale unfolds.

Nowhere near as complex as some reviewers make out - in simple terms the end of Chapter 3 is the finale and the start of chapter four the introduction.
And although the Dr for once seems utterly incidental to events, the last few minutes give a twist that completely changes your entire perception of what just happened.
Utterly Excellent with Davison and cast on top form.
Highly Recommended.
