    The poor quality of the audio and video of this episode didn't surprise me, nor did it detract overmuch from the overall experience. Mrs. Gale's entrance into the deserted house where she eventually converses with the talking teddy bear was perhaps the one spot whare the video transfer quality did negatively impact the effectiveness of the sequence. It could have been a truly creepy moment.



    The story wasn't bad for such an early episode. There were a couple of weak points in the plot (one at the very end that could have - but didn't quite - ruin my enjoyment of the story), but I found that I really enjoyed this episode more than some of the later ones in the Cathy Gale era. At least it wasn't boring.moreless
