Definitely overlong, filled with some lighthearted nonsense that may not mesh with some folks' taste, but not nearly as convoluted as it seems to attempt to be in parts.
My main gripe is with the sections with Pertwee. It's commendable that they wanted to include him, but he's practically inaudible, and trying to work around his dialogue unfortunately just leads to pointless and self-indulgent sections that slow the pace right down.
As a whole I find the story so entertaining though. There's genuinely interesting history and canon, and some of the spookier, unsettling parts pack a punch. Paul McGann and India Fisher are sublime, Nicholas Courtney is a treat, and the sections with Davison, Baker, and McCoy are an absolute hoot.
It feels celebratory. Daft, lengthy, fun, and worth a re-listen.
