Quote from: The Discontinuity Guide
'You're nothing but a pathetic bunch of tin soldiers skulking about the galaxy in an ancient spaceship.' A contradictory, tedious, and unimaginative mess. The humans know the Cybermen are going to arrive, yet are surprised when they do, and talk fondly of the Doctor and companions, having just been suspicious of them. No time. No money. No mercy. Even the title's rubbish.

The other thing I could never quite get was how this version of the Nerva Beacon relates to the one in The Ark in Space.  The weakest of the series, but OK.

Not bad, I most clearly remember "Harry Sullivan is an imbecile!" and the fact that the Time Lord seal is the seal of the natives in this story. I don't know how to explain that. Or that they get out of gold manacles because gold is  "soft" metal. Which, while true, sounds a bit unrealistic. I mean soft or not, metal is metal. Anybody know if it's feasible?
