A killer vent doll, giant rats, Victorian settings, a laser-shooting dragon, Jago & Litefoot, Robert Holmes, Philip Hinchcliffe and David Maloney. A recipe for brilliance, and it delivers just that.

In classic Who, it simply does not get any better than this. Superb in every department. Apart from those tinfoil shoes, but we'll overlook that. :)

The first story of Season 4, it the episode in which Ben and Polly take their first trip in the TARDIS, as well as the penultimate story for William. It’s a quite enjoyable historical adventure and Ben Jackson is great in a story that calls on him to be an action hero. The story has a great period feel with pirate treasure, mysterious crypts, and a corrupt town full of smugglers.

The supporting cast is strong, which allowed an ailing William Hartnell to perform well as the Doctor comes off as very cunning. Also his efforts to save the squire shows how far the character had come since, “An Unearthly Child.” The only fault I found is that at a couple points, writer Brian Hayles seemed to forget that Ben and Polly had just joined the Doctor and wrote dialogue that didn’t make sense in that context. Overall, the story is an underrated delight and it’s a pity that this is only exists in audio form.

Four to Doomsday is actually the first story Peter Davison filmed and it's a production that has some big problems: wooden guest acting, an unconvincing villain, and probably one of the most absurd portrayal of physics in all of Doctor Who. However, there's a godo mystery through the first two parts and it's good to see the Fifth Doctor get direct with Adric in a way he rarely did, and the resolution is fairly satisfying. As a whole, the story isn't dull or stupid, but it does have a camp feel that may actually make it more enjoyable for some fans.
