The story in which the Doctor finally reaches Blackpool! Even though David Bailie is great as a recasted Celestial Toymaker, not a lot of importance really goes on in this piece and I actually do think the ultimate explanation of the true nature of the Toymaker does rob him of his mystery. And not for the better.
I quite like The Nightmare Fair, which certainly starts with an unsettling and slightly creepy atmosphere, and although not quite maintained throughout (and it also feeling quite short) I'd give it a generous 7 out of 10.
Brilliant front cover too, but I'm biased because I've supported Blackpool FC since I was 13. Up the Pool.
