The Doctor, Tegan, and Turlough are resting at the Eye of Orion, a relaxing field with an effect like Earth after a rainstorm. An unseen black-gloved figure manipulating some controls and kidnaps the First Doctor, played with great William Hartnell-ness by Richard Hurndall. A miniature of the Doctor appears. Hmmm, who around here likes shrinking people? Familiar? This happens to the Second and Third Doctor, as well as other companions, but a glitch occurs with the Fourth Doctor and Romana II, who are trapped in a time vortex. With each attack, the Doctor suffers twinges of cosmic angst, and he must do something, lest he be pulled into the vortex and into oblivion. "Great chunks of me are being detached, like icebergs," he says. "I must become whole."
The High Council of Time Lords, still led by Borusa, summon the Master to rescue the Doctor from Gallifrey's Death Zone, "the black secret at the heart of your Time Lord paradise" which is "not the most hospitable of environments." He does so, but is rebuffed by two of the Doctors, understandable as he was full of tricks and traps before.
The Cybermen play a major role here, as three squads of them come out.Read more ›
The one i feel sorry for in this is the master. He honestly tries to help the doctor out and is basically told to get lost.
there were some things they changed in the dvd i didnt care for. One being the voice of rassilon at the end. he sounded fine in the verisons ive seen. the other was special effects tweeking. we loved the show because it didnt have good effects...It was cheesy.
good show no doubt and a must for troughton fans as he is in rare form.
