Quite good
25 March 2019 | by RrrobertSee all my reviews

This one trots out many familiar elements of the series. They stumble upon yet another mysterious planet. It will support human life but it doesn't have a civilisation left living on it: they are all dead and only a mystical, deceptive force remains. (Ring Around the Moon and Missing Link, which I saw first by watching in DVD order, have some of these same elements.)

This is however quite entertaining and there is quite a bit of action. It was great seeing the normally strait-laced Alphans loved-up and giggly. The planet has a really interesting design. Catherine Schell is a great guest star and Gareth Hunt has a brief bit as an Eagle pilot.
