Storyline

The Doctor needs to stop Adric from siding with Monarch and get Bigon quietly restored (who was mechanically lobotomized for previously siding with the Doctor). The ship then gets turned into one big multi-cultural dance party so the Doctor can make a desperate leap for the TARDIS, floating just outside the spaceship, and stop Monarch's plans for Earth.

Trivia

Nyssa's sudden fainting spell at the end of the story was a throwback to the style of serial transition often employed during the First Doctor era. In this case, the reason for Nyssa's sudden collapse is revealed at the start of Doctor Who: Kinda: Part One (1982). See more »

It ends on a somewhat flat note.
28 July 2019 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

Four to Doomsday is not without its good points, sadly they all seem to occur during the first two episodes, when the mystery and intrigue cause real interest. As the story unfolds it sadly becomes a little dull, the final part being as dull as dishwater. The plot is somewhat messy, and the main three villains go from being the most powerful beings in the universe, to absolutely woeful.

I know this one is of its time, but the special effects do it no favours, The Doctor's attempts to get to the TARDIS look so bad, but as I say it was 1982.

Not much for Nyssa to do, apart from faint, this highlighted the obviously overcrowded TARDIS crew.

Four to doomsday begins well, but sadly ends in very ordinary style. 5/10
