For a short one it was kind of fun. A nice twist ending

Whils there are some spectacular missfires in the 80s series, thankfully they got one thing right. If a story was quick and punchy, they'd pull it off as a 10 min flash peice rather than ruining it by dragging it out over an hour.

This was a great little number, that would have lost a lot if it had been over expanded.

So, one of the better ones, and possibly done with loving regard for "to serve man", effectively switching the twist around 180 degrees.

Meh. A nice idea, but wasn't a favourite of mine.

As Fail:Safe said, a nice little punchy ep that doesn't outstay it's welcome. I too find this very reminiscent of some of the simpler original series eps that do a bit turn at the end.

Very enjoyable.
