Rate this:
The Doctor is behaving very oddly. After signing a treaty with enemy aliens, he returns to his home planet, Gallifrey, and demands the Presidency of the High Council of Time Lords. His first act of rule is to banish Leela to the wastelands on pain of death. His second is to sabotage the planet's defense barriers, enabling full scale invasion. Why has the Doctor joined forces with the militaristic Vardans? Is he out for revenge against the Time Lords? Or does he have a hidden agenda? But his allies are also hiding a dark secret, for behind them is a familiar enemy waiting for the right moment to attack.

The Invasion of Time is an underrated gem of a Doctor Who story. It's engaging and entertaining. We go deeper into Gallifreyan politics, see the Fourth Doctor (Tom Baker) play the bad guy (sort of) and get the most in-depth look (at least in the series as of time of broadcast) of the Doctor's TARDIS. Leela (Louise Jameson) gets plenty of moments to shine before her departure. It's great. The only real letdown are the special effects. The Vardans as shimmering pieces of tinfoil being the worst. Still, this is one of my favorites. Any scene between the Doctor and Borusa are worth it alone. A must for Tom Baker fans, this story is just fun.

''The Invasion Of Time'' is overrated for it's badness, I disagree, it is a great story, and you could just skip the chase scenes if you don't like them.
