The Doctor and Nyssa run afoul of Sir Isaac Newton by accidentally paying with a coin from the future. The plot on this is a bit thin as it involves the Doctor and Nyssa being dragged to and from the same cell several times. However, David Warner turns in a superb performance playing Newton as a genius bordering on madness. It's fascinating to see how he sizes us the Doctor and the clues in front. There are some funny moments, but it really would have worked better to find some way to do a full release featuring Isaac Newton, particularly if Warner was playing him.

Everything to do with Isaac Newton is brilliantly and cleverly written. The only thing that makes this story a 9 for me rather than a 10 is the uneven tone. It's not that I object to the comedy. It's actually quite good. But I feel like all these comedy underlings don't belong in the same story with these tense interrogation scenes. It's not a terrible flaw, and it doesn't make the story any less enjoyable, but it does detract a bit for me. If this had more of the tone of a Lucarotti historical than a Spooner historical, I would have enjoyed it even more.

The Doctor and Nyssa become embroiled in a monetary excursion against a hilariously enraged and almost psychotic Isaac Newton. This one is easily the lightest of the stories and works as a comedic combination of history, mystery, intrigue and sci-fi. David Warner plays Newton himself and it's such a different turn than I was expecting for the character. It's so amusing to see Five get so irritated with and yet still so fanboy gushing over a historical figure almost to the point of Twelve's relationship with Robin Hood in 'Robot of Sherwood'. I wouldn't say that it's quite as interesting as the others in this set and other than the performances, there isn't much that is quite memorable about it. But it's still a fun little historical that will have you laughing and enjoying yourself while you are listening.

Funny and clever and captivating. Superb writing. Peter Davison is hilarious and effective, while David Warner as Isaac Newton is a fantastic experience.
