Not the Best

Charley and the 8th Doctor never seem to be consistant. They are either good or bad and this one was bad.

The main reason they are bad is overconfidence and cocky jokes throughout. This one is typical and the Doctor & Charley are more like the A team. Lock them in a room, with a mirror, some food and in a couple of minutes you have a time portal.

Oh Dear.

Well at least he had Daleks

McGann got his Dalek Episode as all Doctors should have BUT it was not to there standerds because if you could make a time portal out of mirrors the Doctor would have Fixed his Tardis Eons ago. So yes it had daleks no it was'nt up to there standerds

Yes, this is pretty mediocre...

The Daleks are back again. And for once the again i used in the first sentence is a word written with a sigh. Justin really wrote excellent scripts for Red Dawn and Whispers Of Terror, so what is this mediocrity? A load of mirrors again, this worked well in Evil of the daleks, but is just blandly recycled here in a dissapointing rehash of basically very old ideas. Even the daleks saying they love shakespeare is nothing great either. I really found this story hard to get into, better after a few listens but still not great by no means.

Another stage in this Doctor's "season 2" story arc, the story explains why Charlie can't remember Shakespeare. It has to do with a group of Daleks stranded in time trying to rectify the mistake that got them there. It somehow involves the use of mirrors as time machines, as done in The Evil of the Daleks on TV. In the future, Britain is a dictatorship and the dictator is a woman obsessed with being the only person with access to Shakespeare's works. The Daleks oblige her so that they can use the society's time experiment to solve their own problem. Learman, the dictator, is too bizarrely obsessed to be believable. Other elements also do not quite work.
