    I've always had a bit of a soft spot for Castrovalva. While not an all-time favourite, I've always enjoyed how it feels so fresh and new. I love the leisurely pace of the first couple of episodes (although I can see how some regard it as dull) and totally agree with Si Hunt's comment about it having an aftermath sort of feeling about it; it would have worked just as well as an end-of-season story...it would have been a more successful experiment with such an idea than the Twin Dilemma was, a few years later. 7/10

    Watched this Again last weekend.

    The firsty dw5 story( Not the first created ) however what a great start. PD pulls of a transistion no less greater that from Hartnell to Trouhton. Just how can you go from Toms Doctor succesfully?

    Probably the best start to a season in classic who

    We're all very fond of Castrovalva. Parts one and two is Yay the TARDIS! and parts three and four is Yay Escher!
    Pity. I have no understanding of the word. It is not registered in my vocabulary bank. EXTERMINATE!

    Absolutely - in fact, before Peter C was announced last year as Dr twelve, I was half-hoping they'd decided to give Peter Davison a second bash at it.

    Indeed!

    Mind you, I wouldn't want him to try and recreate the fifth - I'd be much more interested in him taking a different tack, given that the young chap is now, well, maybe not quite so young...

    "Oh no, not this old face again!"

    I've just got my handcuffs and my truncheon and that's enough.
