Storyline

The solstice nears, making it time for the Rani to bring her plans into fruition. The Doctor's sympathies for Beyus, ruler of the Lykertyans, are rather qualified. Beyus' heart is for his people yet something prompts him to collaborate fully in helping the Rani reach all her objectives. The answer, he's told, lies within the Center of Leisure.

This part, wasn't very good.
30 December 2018 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

I've been somewhat positive in my reviews for the first two episodes, but the quality in this one does dip. It's all a bit comedy caper, there are too many silly scenes, as I watch I can't help feeling that they're sending the show up a bit, The Tetraps look and sound utterly ridiculous, they look like comedy toys, they may have perhaps appeared better in dimmer light. There are lots of silly jokes, and as for the moment where The Doctor ties The Rani up with his scarf, not impressed. I continue to love The Lakertyans, and the costume department did a good job with having a few of them. I do love the idea of that brain, with multiple sources, but how can you take that seriously with all that's happened here.

Quite poor. 4/10
