purplecat: The Tardis (Doctor Who)
I warned Tame Layman going into The Invasion of Time that it didn't have a good reputation. We were, after all, still recovering from The Creature from the Pit. He expressed befuddlement at the end of episode 1 about it's poor reputation and then rigidly held to that opinion through the remaining five episodes.

To be fair, it is an awful lot better than Creature from the Pit )

At the end of it all Tame Layman conceded it wasn't among the best Fourth Doctor stories, but maintained that even weak fourth Doctor stories were better than the best stories for some other Doctors (poor old Hartnell and Troughton got listed which I felt was a little unfair). I'm not sure I entirely agree, but the fact remains that for a story with a fairly low reputation this was mostly fun and watchable.
