Sadly, our son just plain did not like this one very much. I’ve always liked it, and assumed that another unstoppable fantasy villain would go over well. He was restless all through the evening, and finally grumbled “This is really boring” while Ray McAnally’s character, the diabolical mastermind of the week, is revealing his plans to Mrs. Peel.
Maybe he’ll come around another day. Or maybe he’ll be like his mother, who also had a bit of a grumble when all the hokum about non-conductive oils, broadcast power, and aluminium charged particles started to make Dr. Science’s head hurt again. Style over substance, I guess, but this one’s got style to spare.
