The author has successfully grasped many aspects that define the Second Doctor. It feels very much as if Patrick Troughton had performed this. The more determined and fiercely loyal side to Jamie, as opposed to some of the more comical aspects of the character, is also captured perfectly. This is Jamie at his best as a companion and it is a very strong story for this character; no doubt benefitting from the fact that it is a rare occurrence for an adventure to feature only Jamie and the Doctor.
The Archons prove to be quite interesting villains and their home convincingly portrayed. They are a species and a home world that would never have been able to be satisfactorily reproduced within the program during Trougton's tenure. As something similar in background to the Racnoss or the Vampires, there is definitely scope for the Archons to be used again and in greater detail.
It is also a novel idea and an enjoyable fan indulgence to have the Master appear in a Second Doctor story. His manipulation of Jamie is sublime and worthy of Roger Delgado.
To achieve so much, so well in such a short story is a quite a success and it is a promising outlook for the next nine adventures.
In short, a very enjoyable light read that gives me hope for future stories.
He paints a wonderful character of the Second Doctor and his assistant Jamie. This Doctor is quirky, eccentric, quick and clumsy. It is easy to picture Patrick Troughton as the tale spins along at a great pace.
This is far more like one of the new tv productions. It whips along and takes you on a great ride. Recommended.
