In many ways this was mediocre fare. The plot involving an entertainment broadcast messing with reality, drawing the TARDIS in is not particularly innovative. It lead to some fun and that is good.
Where this shines is Martin Hutson who plays the actor that plays the villain. Two roles, until the villain gets copies of himself from other releases of the movie. Initially the villain, Lord Krarn is poorly designed and lacks motivation. When this gets explained to him by Flip, he enters a deep introspective mood which is very character defining. It asks questions, not just about people but about writing characters. As the plot evolves this adds complexity as the four characters played by one actor have various differences and once they start interacting with each other the story soars to a new level.
That the rest of the story was a little tired and bland, was actually quite good, as it made room for the highlights of the story to shine.
Unfortunately Flip was present for less than half the story, which put a bit of a damper on things.
