Episode 219 – “The Mind Robber” – Part 04

So our heroes are facing off against the medusa, and defeat her in grand style!

The medusa defeated, our heroes reunite, re-encounter Gulliver, and finally meet the Master, who turns out not to be a sinister Time Lord, but rather a mild English author who wrote boys’ adventures stories. Alright, then.

He and the Doctor initially get on well, but things soon fall apart, and the Doctor gets menaced as Jamie and Zoe get pressed between the pages of a giant book. So that’s a thing.

I am reminded here that while I quite like the overall story of this serial, the individual episodes are kind of “meh”.
