This story concludes the Serpent's Crest storyline as Mike Yates, Doctor 2 (David Troughton), and the rest of the village of Hexford find themselves stranded on a mysterious planet in a bubble that supports life. When the Fourth Doctor arrives, things get pretty hairy as the Fourth Doctor suspects his predecessor is an imposter.

This wraps ups everything rather nicely as the plot threads come together. The feeling of an actual progression from start to finish with everything being resolved is certainly different from the prior stories where it felt like we were listening to five loosely connected stories. The idea of an English village having to support itself in a biodome with no access to sunlight an interesting idea that they play off of pretty well

Baker and Troughton play off each other wonderfully, and the plot moves at a good pace to make this a fun adventure where all the loose ends are wrapped up. My one complaint is the gratuitous portrayal of the Vicar as a drunk and a blowhard. Other than that, this is a pretty strong story with a satisfying conclusion to this series.

Didn't entertain as much as the previous part but a good finish to the series.

The Serpent Crest series as a whole is a consistently strong run of adventures for the 4th Doctor and Mrs Wibsey. And Survivors in Space brings about a nice ending for the storyline, tying up all the plot elements that were introduced in Tsar Wars and throughout the rest of the series. A very satisfying conclusion with sound performances all round.
