Doctor Who: The Edge of Destruction
(2 episodes, s01e12-e13, 1964)
Aside from developing the mythology behind the TARDIS being a living machine and some nice moments at the end between the Doctor and Barbara, I really didn’t like this serial much. It did emphasize some of the inherent friction amongst the companions and the Doctor, and seems to have healed those rifts to make a more coherent team. The plot, and especially the ending, seemed rushed and almost pulled from thin air.
Rating: 2/5 – “Mm? What’s that, my boy?”
