Who Review #87 - the Masque of Mandragora

scene by scene, episode by episode

Season 14 opens with a jolly little jaunt in Renaissance Italy. This is a curious story in that it mixes a variety of genres; it goes from evil, plotting Count intent on murdering his nephew and taking over a kingdom to evil monster intends taking over the Earth.

The location shooting, sets and costumes are all top draw.

There is a strong running theme through the sory - of superstition and the scientific enlightenment.

Curiously, though, with so much on offer, this story has never really gripped me that much. It's OK but seems to plod along and be short of thrills and spills.
