I will start out this Love Post by saying that I volunteered to do this episode not because it is a personal favorite, but because no one else had taken it (and I thinkstunt_muppet already has enough to look after without having to pick up all the un-taken episodes). I really disliked Part 3 of this story when I first saw it on my Lost in Time DVD, and mused that the BBC may have made a mistake in not succeeding in burninating it along with the rest of the story. In my opinion, Polly in particular was very ill-served by the script, which shows her and Ben uncharacteristically reacting to things but never taking control. It was at times, actually painful to watch, especially coming hard upon the heels of The Highlanders and all the awesomeness contained therein. However upon seeing the reconstruction, and the love and effort put into it, I have changed my mind. While I still believe that Part 3 is probably the weakest part of the story, it is much improved by seeing the adventure in its entirety, which is actually quite fun.
That being said, I will do my very best to show my love for Team TARDIS in this adventure.
