Quote from: The Discontinuity Guide
'Perhaps everyone runs from the taxman!' A clever script is balanced by a straight-forward plot, although the subtlety of some of the jokes will be lost on a younger audience. The Doctor's political asides ('Probably too many economists in the government!') have improved with age, however.

I liked this one a lot, and I'm surprised more don't.

"This is where I get a real sense of job satisfaction."

Brilliant. I'm not usually for the dystopian society stories, but this one was great.

I always thought this was a popular one. I've only seen it once but I thought it was pretty good. It was also the story that gave me my first taste of Leela.

I guess it is pretty well liked. It's just that whenever people give out recommendations for 4th Doctor stories, I seldom see this one on the list.
