Great acting abounds on this Doctor Who from 1989. This was the story that convinced me that Sylvester McCoy and Sophie Aldred were two terrific actors and that they were more than capable of being one of the series' great partnerships. The sets depicting a Victorian mansion are excellent and the guest cast of Ian Hogg, Sylvia Syms and John Hallam is good without being too much of a showbiz line-up (although Frank Windsor is a bit typecast as a policeman).
