Not action-packed, no, but it's definitely an affectionate tribute to the historical serials of the First Doctor, giving Ian and Barbara a chance to express their love of learning, rub elbows with a legendary historical figure, and sneak in a couple of quick science lessons at the same time. But it winds up being something along the lines of The Name of the Rose meets Earth vs. the Flying Saucers-- which suited me just fine. William Russell turns in his usual rock-solid performance. Franklin's Hypatia isn't bad, but they couldn't seem to settle on whether she should be playing a precocious upstart or an established and serious scholar. But that's a pretty minor quibble with what I considered a very engaging and fun installment that as an added bonus revisits the (in)famous First Doctor dictum that history cannot be changed.
