Trivia

The Doctor replaces his stalk of celery with one from Captain Wrack's ship. Rather curiously, both stalks come from buffets which are essentially figments of other people's imagination (Castrovalva and the Buccaneer both being "unreal"). See more »

Quotes

The Doctor: These creatures have vast powers, that's why none of them must win. To achieve further power would be a disaster.
Turlough: But the other ships - you can't stop all of them.
The Doctor: We can but try.

Part 3, it gets stronger by the episode.

Furlough jumps overboard and lands up in the hands of Captain Wrack.

I feel the story benefits greatly from the appearance of Lynda Baron as Captain Wrack, she truly is a larger then life character. I love her laugh, it's so distinctive, it really does work. The Eternals are such fascinating characters, they have the ability to function beyond good and evil.

It looks great, the sets are terrific, from the traditional Captain's party to the deck, especially Wrack's room, which is so different a great contrast from the most historical styles, the costumes are gorgeous.

Tegan is great, and it's nice to see a different size of her character. She gets a stalker, in the very handsome form of Mr Marriner, but he's incredibly clingy and creepy.

I adore Enlightenment. 9/10
