Quote from: The Discontinuity Guide
'An omniscient computer with schizophrenia - not a very pretty thought.' A little masterpiece, often undeservedly forgotten by the weight of the surrounding stories. A magnificent cast shake every ounce of subtlety and invention from the script. Pity they didn't use the working title 'The Day God Went Mad', however, as it fits wonderfully well.

Probably the second Tom Baker story I ever saw- it's probably the reason it's a totally biased favorite of mine. A clever plot and the introduction of an original and awesome companion, however scantily clad she may be. I always love a story that adds mystique to the Doctor and dropping him into tribal legends is wonderful. It avoids the cliche with the nice plot twist explanation of the Sevateem and Tesh which is wonderful. I've seen this one manyyy times now.

I rewatched this just a few days ago, and I agree, it's a great story.

Potentially a great story, but lacklustre direction and some strange editing decisions
