I really like the keys of marinus, I think the reason I enjoy it so much is because when I was a child I grew up watching a lot of "Quest" based shows and cartoons where the main characters would be searching for an item or a small piece of a large item before the bad guys could find it.
The acting is...solid all round, nothing spectacular but sometimes you can only do so much with the material you're given and while I do like this story I am not blind to the fact it is quite weak in terms of plot.
William Hartnell and Jacqueline Hill both deserve special praise however, with Jacqueline being excellent in episode two where she plays a Barbara that is on her own and on the run and William Hartnell having the strongest material in episode 5 where the doctor must try and acquit Ian.
All in all, a vastly underrated story.
