Good little 4-part story for the Pertwee era. Nothing too special and probably on the lower end of the spectrum in regards to Robert Holmes' best scripts but still an entertaining watch. Has a nice political message behind it although it does seem a bit dated looking back on it today.
Overall a good story that gets 7/10

This is a great story. It's nothing deep or especially dark. It's one of those stories that shows how fun and how imaginative a science fiction story can be. The story has some serious points and Pertwee gets a chance to unleash some indignant righteous anger on the keeper of a horrid device that treats sapient beings as a cosmic freakshow, but overall it's just a great romp. The four part length keeps it from being too padded while still exploring this great concept and while the big bad monsters of the story weren't up to modern standards, they're a big step above many early creatures such as the Axons from Season 8. Just a great story. Truly enjoyed it.
