Excellent. William Russell is great as ever. Susan Franklyn is excellent as Hypatia and even pulls off a surprisingly adorable First Doctor in the latter half of the story. Well-written and well-designed, and that cover picture of Ian is fantastic.

Takes place sometime after The Transit of Venus, very good story, one of the best of the first doctors companion chronicles.

Not action-packed, no, but it's definitely an affectionate tribute to the historical serials of the First Doctor, giving Ian and Barbara a chance to express their love of learning, rub elbows with a legendary historical figure, and sneak in a couple of quick science lessons at the same time. But it winds up being something along the lines of The Name of the Rose meets Earth vs. the Flying Saucers-- which suited me just fine. William Russell turns in his usual rock-solid performance. Franklin's Hypatia isn't bad, but they couldn't seem to settle on whether she should be playing a precocious upstart or an established and serious scholar. But that's a pretty minor quibble with what I considered a very engaging and fun installment that as an added bonus revisits the (in)famous First Doctor dictum that history cannot be changed.
