  • A fast paced action episode.

    9.2
    This is certainly one of the most thrilling episodes in the series, and I can image this is a favourite with the younger audience. After the story driven episode previous to this 'The Horse race' couldn't be more different. It gets right down to buissness in the opening scenes which is quite unusual for the show and it keeps the pace at a maximum. There are a few plot holes which ussualy aren't that often in the series, but I didn't find that this hindered my enjoyment of one of the most action packed episode in the shows history. High praise indeed.moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Here they say Barlow was a Prefect at Caymak. Barlow is the same character as in "The Gladiators," but there the vilage he was in charge of was unnamed. Caymak was the village that the spaceship landed near in "Escape From Tomorrow," and looked nothing like the one in "The Gladiators."

  • QUOTES (2)

    • Gregor: Well, why should apes give orders? And why do we have to obey?
      Galen: Well, there are two answers to that – mine, and the authorities. Seeing mine isn't backed up by bullets, I think you should listen to the authorities.

    • Martin: It's not necessary you work for the little food I've given you.
      Alan: It wasn't necessary for you to give us the food.
