This story has something you don't see too much of in Doctor Who - something a little space operatic.

The TARDIS turns up on a ship in space - and the people on the ship thing the TARDIS crew are an alien enemy, the Draconians.

The Doctor et. al. however seem to notice that there are Ogrons around - and where you smell Ogrons, there be Daleks.

This makes this tense political and military situation rather more dangerous.

I was getting a bit worried about Malcolm Hulke after the disappointments of Doctor Who and the Doomsday Weapon and Doctor Who and the Sea Devils, but this was a welcome return to form; the slightly odd politics of the human and Draconian governments seem a bit less improbable on the page, and everyone is given decently believable motivations. The one slightly odd thing is that the ending just has the Master tidying up his desk, rather than shooting the Doctor. I suppose this was a quiet tribute to Roger Delgado. ( )
