This new series of retro dramas have the mix of narrated and dramatized storytelling that one finds in Companion Chronicles, but with more drama and less narration. Here, Peter Purves performs Doctor 1. He goes for getting the flavor of the character without doing a strictly accurate impression. Narration duties are split between him and Maureen O'Brien. The story itself would have fit well with Doctor Who 1965. There's a twist in it involving the role of the Daleks, but otherwise the story is rather straightforward and simple, with a cartoonish villain whose motivation for killing people just does not add up. It's a great piece of nostalgia, recalling a simpler time in Doctor Who where the moral lines a clear.
