So, this episode is one of the worst ones I have seen. not only is the story absolutely awful but the effect and models of the dinosaurs were dreadful. I get that it was the 70's but, even this was bad. it also ruined a good character in Mike Yates. and in my opinion the worst episode in Pertwee's era.

The titular dinosaurs are probably the biggest issue with this story, as their obviously fake look and occasional errors in species habits are notorious. The first episode originally only survived in Black and White and that may have provided the best look for the dinosaurs.

Yet, beyond the dinosaurs, there's a very good story. Elizabeth Sladen shines in her second outing as the Doctor's companion. Sara Jane showing incredible resourcefulness, courage, and cleverness. The plot itself is clever with a case of utopianism gone mad and treachery at UNIT. Overall, an unusual but well-written story.
