This is just the worst… Sadly, the most pointless and tedious serial in the history of classic Doctor Who. The first couple of minutes were so-so, but when so called "plot" kicked in… Worst of all, they turned this nightmare in goodbye story for Nyssa! We should thank Big Finish for what they did with her later…

"Terminus" is very good for 2/3 of the First episode. The majority of the episode was spent with the TARDIS crew wandering about an eerie station. However, this gives way to a mishmash of plots that are impossible to keep up with characters wandering all about the ship and doing very little interesting. Then we have an absurd plot point that has the Big Bang resulting from exploding fuel and fear that a second leak could destroy the Universe. (And even the Director doesn't think this plot is worth focusing on as it continues to flash between five or six Point of View characters.) The story features Nyssa infamously losing her skirt when she becomes ill. The Black Guardian looks like weak for choosing Turlough for this task, and given the focus of this trilogy, the whole Black Guardian plot gets shoved to the sidelines. The only thing to save Terminus was Nyssa's brave and noble decision to leave the TARDIS and its context.
