In "Living in Harmony," nick takes an entirely different tact than the Western-themed prisoner TV episode of the same name as this episode is maybe (Probably?) set in space.

Number 6 finds himself on a rocket to a moonbase, alongside Number 9-who had apparently died in the previous series, but is now back and calling herself Number 90. Of course, being the Prisone, the questions immediately raised is whether he's actually going anywhere (let alone on a spaceship) and if number 9/90 is actually with him.

This is a very good script for the Prisoner. It gives Number 6 some pivotal character-defining moments when he faces a key choice. At the same time, the sense of mystery as to what's going on never entirely lets up. It answers some questions, but leaves so many questions that it serves to set up Series Three.

In Concealed Weapon, River is serving as crew member aboard a ship where one of her shipmates is suddenly killed. River detects someone on board with two heartbeats and assumes it was the Doctor despite having met three versions of the Master so far. Most of the first half is pretty plodding stuff.

The story picks up when Derek Jacobi shows up as the War Master with an evils scheme and he has at least one accomplice among the crew. Everything is not what it seems and the truth will be revealed.

However, that truth being revealed has little to do with River who mostly has other people tell them the backstory, which isn't all that exciting. The most frustrating thing about this story is how little River actually does it. She does one thing that costs the Master, but it seems actually a minor point, all things considered. She's essentially is relegated to being a guest star in her own series, and not even a clever funny guest start, but one who survives at the Master's sufferance for a very weak reason.

Derek Jacobi is the best thing about this production, but the script does him little favors. The War Master is at his best when he uses deliciously false motives to deceive people to get what he wants. Here, he's at the fruition of an evil plan, and so is pretty much nasty the whole thing through.

In a way, it felt like a teaser for the War Master series, and a bit of a mediocre one at that.

Told from the perspective of Clement Clark Moore, the author of the famous poem, as the story opens, Moore has a very dark view of Christmas, that it's an evil time when the Krampus comes about. It's a very fun and festive tale with a few surprises and a delightful ending. If I had a complaint, it's that narrator Stephen Critchlow's accent for the Seventh Doctor sounded a lot more like Jamie.

The Doctor and Peri are trying to have a relaxing time sailing on a ship sailing from Madagascar to New Orleans. However, one of the ship's crew is murdered and the Captain accuses the Doctor of the crime.

This story has some nice performances. This is a very good story for Peri, and also a solid one for the Sixth Character. It really does a good job of capturing their character. I loved Michael Cuckson at the Captain, very a well-drawn character. The soundscape is well-done, doing a very good job of creating that feeling of being on a ship, as well as the atmosphere of the story.

The plot was okay but very standard. What hurt the story is a pretty standard one-dimensional villain with a silly accent who breaks down into hysterics. With a better villain and a more interesting plot, this would be a stronger outing.
