  1. Cool. I saw your old article on the 5th Doctor on Pinterest. I just finished rewatching Arc of Infinity last night! It gets slated for running around Amsterdam, somewhat unfairly. I think it is a major contrivance that Tegan’s cousin is the one taken over by Omega. I do like the Gallifrey scenes notably Colin Baker’s. Nyssa is strong willed showing some of the spirit she had in the solo BF stories. Tegan is my favorite JNT companion. So much happens to her during her time with the Doctor and Fielding has the wherewithal to carry it off. Davison is good here. The matrix here is not very well realized – just a grid? Overall a very solid start to season 20 for me and squarely mid-table for both Davison Era and Classic DW overall.
