Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear...,
This review is from: Doctor Who - Time and the Rani [DVD]  (DVD)This has got to be the dullest most boring, embarrassing episode in the history of Who to that date. McCoy is awful, pratting about like a proper fool. No charisma, no acting ability and dear oh dear no line delivery. I almost curled up with his line: 'and who are you!'.
The Twin Dillema was bad, but at least you could laugh at it. This abysmal effort contained absolutely nothing at all of any sort of entertainment value. It was like some amateurish school play, I still have terrible dreams about it but the good news is I am responding to treatment.
I have relented in many ways and bought some McCoy DVDs just to see how the features play. Can rubbish like this be critically defended? that kind of thing, but I wouldn't waste a single pound on this drivel in fact I wouldn't have one given.

I concede the script is poor. But this story is not beyond rescue; the music is incredible and the production is at least slick compared to other classic era Who's. Sly McCoy would go on to be perhaps the second greatest Doctor and it's at least interesting to see the early stages here. The 7th Doctor era ranged from the interesting to the sublime, so all of it is worth checking out. For me, Doctor Who returned to greatness after this hastily assembled adventure - picking up where Producer Philip Hinchcliffe's final season ended. Give it another try :-)
