Difficult to Listen To

This story is the low point for The Time Travellers series. It seems to be a kind of throwback to the Hartnell era Doctor Who kind of story that jumps around from place to place in largely episodic fashion with each bit only loosely connected. The Time Travellers go off course, arrive somewhere, get in trouble, then pick up a new companion. They do this three times. The new companions themselves are almost unbearable in conception, especially the android Vixie. There is a circularity to it in that the questions of the early part are resolved in the last part. That still does not make up for some very loose plotting, mediocre characterizations, and clunky information-dump dialogue.
