'The Time Monster' episode 1

6 episodes

Gulp. Consensus of opinion says that this story is frighteningly bad, so I'm not looking forward to the rest of it with undisguised glee I have to say... Still, I didn't think there was much wrong with the first episode, although the Master is revealed far too instantaneously and his Greek accent drifts in and out and then disappears altogether after a minute or two. There is a fun relationship between Ruth Ingram and Stuart Hyde featuring a kind of fractious affection, and the time experiments these three are carrying out seem quite compelling. Presumably all the wild and wacky crapness happens in the remaining five episodes...?!
