Back in the seventies, it was still a novelty to have the Doctor regenerate into a new form when the actor portraying him moved on. It allowed for the series' logevity. So as a tenth anniversary episode, it made sense to unite all the forms of the Doctor in a special story and this succeeds on many levels. The story is well crafted and at four episodes long, moves along nicely, which was often a problem with the Pertwee era stories. The usual supporting cast are not left in the shadows of the other Doctors. I would say the only thing I found sad about this episode was the lack of screen time on William Hartnell's part, due to his illness at the time. It would have been nice to see him go at it more with Pertwee and Patrick Troughton. A definite addition to the Doctor Who collection. One of the must haves.

great to see both william hartnell and patrick troughton playing their old characters(or is it character?) in a 10 year anniversary of doctor who.

the plot chosen for this is quite good, but seeing troughton and jon pertwee together is a real treat. U.N.I.T are on hand as always to give their support.

a shame that william hartnell had to film his scenes before everyone else; sadly, by this time he was very sick and this programme marked his last acting job. he still acts very well.

the only down side as far as i can see, is that no previous companions make an appearance; it would have been great to see the likes of susan, ian, polly, jamie and zoe etc.

still, a well made story to celebrate 10 years of a true science fiction classic.

An Excellent story such a shame William Hartnell didn't play a bigger part, but he was very ill at the time.

Omega was played well, even if at first it seems a little over the top.

I love the inter play between Pertwee and Houghton.
