Crisis - (Planet of Giants Part 3)
On this week's edition of 'Tales From The TARDIS' we wrap up our look of 'Planet of Giants' with Crisis, including the history of why this is only a 3-episode story as opposed to a 4-episode one.
- I love the sets that were built for this story, the ambition for this story was pretty damn cool, and it's really understated when it comes to the classic Doctor Who era.
- Barbara not telling anyone about being infected with DN6 is really... really stupid, I get that she doesn't want anyone to be concerned or worried, but it's still stupid.
- The combining of parts 3 and 4 into one also makes Barbara's dilemma come across as very rushed, particularly when the shot of her collapsing is left in as it's clearly the cliffhanger for part 3
- The Doctor taking the seed only makes sense to have something visual for the viewers to know that the TARDIS crew is returning to their normal size
