The truth about Cuthbert’s origin is finally revealed after the end of a very long chase. The revelation of the role the Black Guardian played in all this is actually quite mind blowing. At the same time, Conglomerate, and by extension corporations in general, are given a more nuanced view than often happens in Doctor Who as the Doctor and Romana keep getting confronted by the Conglomerate’s benefits. What happens when such a corporation, even one that has often been villainous, is removed from history.
The story would have been great if had wrapped after the truth behind Cuthbert creating his own timeline had been revealed, but the story dragged on for another twelve minutes, much of which felt like unnecessary padding with a few contrivances thrown in for good measure.
Still, this is a satisfying conclusion and one of the best Fourth Doctor Adventures finales.
