Its not a story about events. Its a story about people reacting to events which is what makes it good drama.

Across the story, the acting is good, the characters believable and the setting is always clear.

The story itself is old and retold so many times as to lose impact.

The TARDIS lands in the middle of the overture to Westside Story and the crew discover the gangs of New York are kind hearted lovable rogues. If you can get your head past that, the story moves into a very good historical drama.

The TARDIS cast are excellent in their recreation of the key roles, though the supporting cast with their New Yoik accents are a bit much.

The bulk of the story is set against the backdrop of the great white hurricane, a historical event I had never heard of, so I was dependent on Barbara to learn about this. Its a good thing she was a history teacher, though I doubt this storm would have made it into the British curriculum.

The doctor arrives at the funeral of a wealthy clone. The clone who inherits his wealth is then murdered. The local police force don't seem up to the task and so the Doctor pushes his way into the investigation...

There is a who-done-it plot in a small environment with each suspect being investigated across the first two episodes. We then move into the third episode where the plot becomes more interesting and some more complex ideas are brought into play. Essentially details of the setting change. This in turn changes the possible motive and suspect. There didn't seem to be a lot to the story until part three, but by then I was hooked by the characters anyway.

I think that Samuel West does a great job playing most of the cast. He does the voice work for all of the clones, but gives them all unique voices.
Phil Cornwell delivers a great performance as well, playing the small station police chief who is out of his depth.

A very good cast recreates the first Doctor and his companions.
This is a slow and gentle story, reminiscent of the exploration days of the Doctor. The TARDIS lands and we have time to let the world slowly unfold before the threats arise.
While spoilers have already ruined the surprise identity of the Inventor, it is still fun to hear the reveal unfold. Once this is out of the way we spend the third part witnessing a battle of wills against the backdrop of a world going mad.
