A story for the 50th Anniversary of the Yeti and a sequel to the Web of Fear that features some keen acting by Ten Bentick as a recast Professor Travers and as the Great Intelligence. There's also a nice little bit of interplay between Alice (who lost her father) and Professor Travers (who thinks Alice is his daughter.) However, the story suffers from a massive sag in the middle and an ending that feels very rote. It's not a bad story, but it's one of the weaker Counter-Measures tales.

A weak script consisting of endless exposition scenes and weak dialogue makes this a disappointing finale to the second series. There are a few potentially interesting ideas, such as Prof. Travers becoming a pseudo father figure for Alison or a climactic trip to the astral plane but alas, they're too underdeveloped to have much impact. Still, the imagery and mythology of the Yeti and Great Intelligence are so endearingly odd, this is manages to be an enjoyable slice of pulp sci-fi.
