A Mysterious Something

This is an interestingly different story, given a historical setting without any historical characters. Why exactly an invading intelligence would choose an isolated monastery in Tibet escapes me. Nevertheless, this story has "something" that compels one to listen. Somehow, one becomes concerned for the little monastery and its inhabitants valiantly struggling to figure out just what is going on.

Highly implausible

Where this story fails is in its climax. Somehow i just cant see the muttering of chants and the breaking of a pyramid banishing the so powerful great intelligence from Earth. The Web of Fear had a far more believable and memorable ending. Here credulity is stretched to the limit ann snaps like a broken elastic band for me.

This is sad as the build up to this anti climax is very compelling indeed. The design of the yeti is excellent, and all the actors get their teeth into their roles along the way. Especially Jack Watling. And the setting in Wales used for Tibet is breathtakingly shot. And for once it actually appears cold and unforgiving. The characters interplay is also well cemented. Just sad about the abismal inept ending. One of the very few weaker Pat tales.
