The Last Outing for Romana I

The season closer, part 2, shifts focus from Proxima Major to Cuthbert's orbiting platform. We get the revelation of what both Cuthbert and the Daleks are up to. The majority of the story is of the base-under-siege variety, with a strong role for K-9. Romana realizes that perhaps life with the Doctor is more interesting than life on Gallifrey. The story ties up most the loose ends, with one left deliberately hanging. The 1978 feeling remains, so much so that one can easily picture all the action in the manner that it would have been taped in 1978. It is a fitting finish, though not a particularly original story.
