"Tom Baker's debut - and it's a good one."
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Tom Baker was the Doctor for 7 years, and to many around the world, he is the best there's ever been. This story was surprisingly good for it's era, but made so much better by Tom's performance – you'd think he had been playing the part for years already.

I must say that I was a bit disturbed by the costume-choosing scene – I sure hope it was meant to be a joke…because if not…(shudders)

Is it a good story? Yes. Are there plotholes? Yes. Did they wreck the syory? No. If you're a fan of the show, or of Tom Baker in the role, you'll be happy with this serial.

Featuring Tom Baker as the 4th Doctor.

With the newly-regenerated Doctor (Tom Baker) behaving erratically, Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart and UNIT have to contend with the theft of the plans for the new disintegrator gun by what seems to be a mechanical monster. However, the theft is only the beginning of a plot to hold the world to nuclear ransom.
