Loss and loneliness

In many ways Magican's oath is a just classic 3rd Doctor story, crashed alien, prison ship, mind control etc. The magican is good and the images of frozen people combined with strong dialong alone makes this a good story.

However the real strength of this story is the underlying sense of Captain Yate's feelings of loss, loneliness, regret, lost love. Mixing this all together makes this a great story.

Mike Remembers

Here we have Mike Yates, much older and wiser, but still lonely, turning in an item of interest to UNIT, a playing card, and telling the silent clerk there about how he came by the card. This is a very UNIT story. It's set entirely in London and based on an unknown effect that is instantly freezing people to death. All of this apparently centers on a street magician who can influence Jo and knows far too much than he should about Mike. The story itself has an interesting buildup, but dissolves into destroy the monster. Richard Franklin does a great impression of both Jon Pertwee and Nicholas Courtney. It makes an enjoyable listen.
