btw, that was sarcasm. I don't consider AOTC (hmm, where have we seen that..) good, but I do consider it typical of the Sixth Doctor stories. "Summoned by Shadows" is closer in look and feel to a Seventh Doctor story (ala "Ghost Light") and so wedges nicely between "Revelation of the Daleks" and "Trial of a Time Lord", if you are that type of person. Many of the extras are not bad. The audio-only prequel to the story was quite good, even if it seemed to lose itself at times. The reminicenses with Colin Baker and Pip and J(essie?) Baker (writers) gave me new understanding into the behind-the-scenes politics of the last 2 parts of "Trial of a Time Lord". Just because your budget is a shoestring, doesn't mean you can't tell a good story.
