The best of McCoy's first season, although it has the indefensible and appallingly executed literal cliff hanger at the conclusion of the first part. The villain is not bad, Ace is interesting, McCoy is finding his feet. I was debating whether to score it a 5 or a 6 but then I remembered that Mel is gotten rid of at the conclusion, so I gave it an extra point.

The plot of Dragonfire has some potential, and there are a few very good performances. Tony Selby is very good as Glitz. While Ace isn't immediately likable, this is her introduction story and there's certainly enough revealed about Ace to make the audience want learn more about her. And Edward Pael has some great maniacal moments as the villain Kane.

Yet, the story suffers from often being incomprehensible. There are moments like the literal cliffhanger at the end of Part One that has the Doctor lowering himself over a precipise via umbrella for no good reason. There's Glitz and the Doctor's attempt to steal back Glitz's spaceship and the Doctor suddenly abandoning the idea. ANd then there's that little girl running around. She's cute. Okay. What's she doing here. It's a confused mess of a story that still manges to be fun most of the time in spite of itself.
