Something has gone seriously wrong with Mars Probe 7. With no contact from the astronauts since the rocket started its return journey from Mars, Space Control is now extremely worried about the fate of the crew. A rescue mission recovers something, but whatever it is, it certainly isn't human. To find out what has happened to the astronauts, the Doctor must head into space without the TARDIS.

I can't praise this one enough. It's often overlooked in the glory that is Season 7, but I think it's easily up there with the greatest Doctor Who stories ever. The Doctor and Liz are especially good here, in what seems like one of the most realistic Doctor Who stories made (in plot, characters, locations and effects), with excellent concepts for the aliens, a great use of Bessie, the soft reintroduction of Sergeant Benton, lots of clever people on both sides, plot twists to die for, a well-meaning villain who gradually becomes utterly hateable, and excruciating tension that lasts until near the end of the final episode.

I found this to be way too long. Interesting in places, but also a bit confusing in the first several episodes as I wasn't paying very careful attention. The characters Reegan and Cornish looked enough alike that I thought they might've been the same person.

Straight forward fun adventure.
Doctor more generous than UNIT.
