Not a classic, but still a fair bit to enjoy
30 June 2019 | by canndymanSee all my reviews

This isn't one of the classics by any stretch, but is still an intriguing and enjoyable episode that keeps the viewer guessing until the end.

When Steed seems to have 'lost' three weeks of his life - when he was supposedly away on vacation - alarm bells start ringing as he starts to experience his own version of Groundhog Day.

This was a clever episode which seems to be inspired by previous stories - but is hampered perhaps by being filmed in the run-up to Christmas, being mainy studio-bound.

Highlights include an appearance from Roger Delgado as a baddie - just before he was about to commence filming on Dr Who'. The irony of seeing Kate O'Mara in this story - later of course to play the female version of The Master as the 'Rani' - won't be lost on Who fans.

A rather hurried climax closes this one, and we're left with the feeling that this is a rather modest episode in what was on the whole an excellent season.
