(Series 9, Episodes 21-26)
Summary: The Master rides in on his hovercraft and now he’s craving control over time itself, with the help of the Ancient Greeks. He engages in a disturbing seduction of the Queen of Atlantis, whilst Jo shows some cleavage and Hippias shows a lot of thigh. The Doctor gets all existential and merciful in his attempt to stop the Master but suffers an odd bout of Atlantis-related amnesia. The Brigadier displays a touching concern for Yates, Dr Ingram’s trying to be a feminist but she hasn’t read the manual and Sergeant Benton becomes the butt of everyone’s joke. Quite literally.
Watch it because: Science! With clipboards and labcoats and wires and tea cups! Must have been fun making the props for this one…
