The Doctor and Nyssa run afoul of Sir Isaac Newton by accidentally paying with a coin from the future. The plot on this is a bit thin as it involves the Doctor and Nyssa being dragged to and from the same cell several times. However, David Warner turns in a superb performance playing Newton as a genius bordering on madness. It's fascinating to see how he sizes us the Doctor and the clues in front. There are some funny moments, but it really would have worked better to find some way to do a full release featuring Isaac Newton, particularly if Warner was playing him.

The Doctor and Nyssa arrive on a planet of bird people where Cardinal Zero has retired having abandoned the Time Lords, who want the Doctor to get him to return. However, the Doctor begins to feel compelled to interfere due to the society's laws in which the family's of guilty people suffer for their crimes. This is a well-acted piece that puts a good deal of thought into its subject and creates a realistic society.

The actual Sir Toby and Group Captain Gilmore are imprisoned in the Keep. The good news is that Toby helped design and as such would know his way out if anyone could. The bad news? There isn't a way out at least as far as he knows. Meanwhile Rachel and Allison make their break from Counter Measures.


This story is superb. It's the shortest in the box set and moves with a breakneck speed. At the same time, it also manages to revisit some key characters from previous box sets in a way that never feels forced. It's full of action, adventures, a bit of humor, and sets up some very key points for the rest of the set to answer.

Allison and Rachel are investigating a company promising the world clean energy, and cheap mass transit, but refuse to divulge the source of their energy. Then sabotage hits New Horizon and a mysterious shows up to keep Counter Measures away and then they're ordered off the case. In the course of the adventure, the two notice something wrong with Sir Toby and Group Captain Gilmore.


Overall, this is a good adventure, with some very solid plot twists. It's a good story that avoids some of the more predictable turns these sorts of stories take. It feels a lot more like a one off Counter Measures adventure that shows us the new status quo rather than a story interlinks with the rest of the set. Still, it's a quite marvelous and entertaining ride.
