This review is from: Doctor Who : Ghost Light [DVD]  (DVD)
Confusing, yes; disjointed, certainly; too self-aware, maybe; but this is one of the strongest Doctor Who stories of the 1980s and is well worth watching to see how it was before it became all constant references to pop culture and encounters with bisexual immortals.
The story is creepy and weird and The Seventh Doctor has just got to grips with his place in the universe. Ace is sullen and moody but is also becoming a little more interesting as we see glimpses of her past, whilst the costumes are simply fab, particularly the 'husks'. Watch it again, wallow in nostalgia and imagine how good it could have been.
