He is also vain, ego-centric and quite mad

I love this story. Robert Holmes's great last hurrah (Trial of a Timelord should have been but wasn't). I barely know where to begin. The supporting cast were amazing - Shockeye, Dastari and Servalan made great pantomime baddies, Oscar Botchaby was wonderful and I always like a sneaky Sontaran. The companions - Jamie and Peri are wonderful, adding genuine peril to the situation. The music, the sets, the dialogue - everything is magic.

My highest praise, however, must go to the two Doctors, Colin Baker and Pat Troughton. Yes, I know we have to overlook the fact that their meeting was totally lazy (c.f. "You're bound to bump in to each other" with "that is strictly forbidden by the first law of time" as they said in the Three Doctors). I genuinely don't care about this little continuity oversight. This, in my opinion, is one of Colin Baker's finest performances (matched only by Terror of the Vervoids) and Patrick Troughton just slips into the role like he'd never been away. The sparky dialogue between them, the twinkle that they both have in their eye. This is just the type of romp that every Doctor Who should aspire towards.

I absolutely love this story - 5/5 every time for me.
