Stockbridge used to be such a lovely place. The loveliest village in all England, according to the guide books. But hardly anyone visits Stockbridge now: a few tourists, a couple of Trust guides, the odd beady-eyed raven.

I do really enjoy Peter Davison's doctor and Nyssa they are a really good combination. This was much more action than most of their stories. I think I was hoping for something a bit scarier and less running. Nyssa was really great though, she was witty and clever. I also really liked her and the relationship she had with the young girl. Peter's Doctor was also much more interesting in this. I missed the middle of the Stockbridge trilogy so will have to go back and get that.
This play starts off quite strong. The Doctor and Nyssa arrive in Stockbridge in the far future, and quickly realize that something very strange is going on. After some spooky experiences, they discover that in this time period, Stockbridge is now a kind of heritage theme park, sealed off in an environment bubble on an Earth that has been rendered uninhabitable by solar flares. But money is tight, the park isn't entirely well maintained, and things start to go wrong.

And then the Daleks show up.
Okay - so there is little sense of mystery to be found in this Dalek tale which brings the Stockbridge trilogy to its conclusion, yet I found this story to be the most satisfying of the three tales (which is all the more impressive given how little time I usually have for Dalek stories).

"There's a mysterious village with Something Going On, but the clue is in the title of the story. It might have been a better story without the actual Daleks.
Disappointing Dalek episode set in historical England.
