Well, that took me back

Great to hear Jon Pertwee again, and in a story that I didn't know. A good yarn, which would have been all.wrong on TV, as the special effects of the time would have been ludicrous. In the imagination, though, they were spot on. Sarah Jane is as much a liability as ever, and the Brigadier was more effective than usual.
Good story, mostly good script, good voices. Well worth a listen.
