The Doctor is trapped by the Mandagora Helix. He and Sarah Jane escape by they take the energy with them to 15th Century Italy where the tiny Dukedom of San Martino where there's a power struggle between the Duke, his Uncle, the Count, and forces of the occult.

This story shines through the strength of Elizabeth Sladen and Tom Baker's performance. The Doctor has some very exciting swashbuckling scenes and there are a few lovely moments between him and Sarah Jane. We also get the introduction of the glorious Season 14 wooden console room.

Most everything is else is adequate and somewhat forgettable. There are two main villains who are adequate as threats, but very much stock. The alien threat of the week has some moments where it could be confused with a screen glare. Still, the performances and solid moments for the Doctor make this an enjoyable watch.

Solid story, nothing really out of the ordinary but Tom and Liz are on fine form and are a joy to watch :)
