Sadly I'm getting a little sick of Silurians and this story has no old guard UNIT characters, so to me this is just a filler. I guess there is nothing wrong with that as its part of a good box set, but the issue this episode highlights is that there isn't enough room in a Silurian story for four hours of story. At the start of this episode was an imminent threat. At the end of the episode there is an imminent threat. That the Silurians want their world back was hardly considered in this story which relegates them back to the role of rubber suit monsters. It seems Silurians need the ethical questions to make them interesting, when they shouldn't.
Kate Stewart refusing to shoot dinosaurs was the only high point of the story.
