Rate "The Invasion Of Time"

The Doctor returns to his home planet, Gallifrey, where, following an illicit deal with aliens known as the Vardans, he becomes Lord President of the High Council. And his first official act is to exile Leela to the wastes of outer Gallifrey beyond the capital city. What is going on in that Time Lord head? Well, Leela is sure he's turned traitor. This is why she's allied herself with some outcast Gallifreyans who live in the outer wastes. What Leela doesn't know is that all of this, all of the Doctor's odd behavior and actions, is part of an elaborate ruse to unveil the identity of the Vardans' true masters, and stop a plan to invade the home planet of the Time Lords, itself.

Loads of Time Lord and TARDIS mythology being dumped on fans in this story. And we say goodbye to Leela at the end of this six part tale to end Season 15. So what did you think of "The Invasion Of Time?" Sontar-HA! Or Sontar-BAH!

This is one of those stories that proves the point that a six part episode is simply too long. All this one did is spend four episodes making the Doctor seem nefarious while we're presented with the Vardans as the apparent villains of the piece, only to pull a bait-and-switch to bring the Sontarans in. The final two episodes were little more than a run around.

Mind you, I did enjoy seeing more of the TARDIS interior. But this story. Argh!

2/5
