Well, I quite like the premise and it started off well enough, but by God did this one drag. There really isn’t much to it beyond the anthropomorphised insects being quite cool. The story seemed to just go around in circles, with very little progress made from episode to episode. I did like the creepy weirdness invoked when Ian and The Doctor were first exploring the planet, but that wore off pretty quickly.
Oh dear, two stories in a row that I wasn’t too keen on. But on the plus side, Vicki is starting to come into her own at this point, establishing herself as a ballsy young gal, much more resilient and harder to freak out than Susan.
