  • This might not be one of my favourite episodes yet it is entertaining all the same. Worth a watch(or re-watch!)

    Dr McCoy finds out he is dying with only a year to live, no wonder his head is turned by a beautiful high preastess who seems to fall in love with him at first sight. This a rare episode to centre around the doctor, I particularly enjoyed Nurse Chappels emotional reaction to McCoy's illness. Another highlight must be the performance of the "old man" who delivered the "for the world is hollow" line. Luckily Spock finds a cure and the Doctor is saved at the end of the episode. (phew!)
