Recced because: I may be a tad biased, as I asked for this story, but it's done so perfectly. The Fifth Doctor is able to confront the man the Master was, and it's as complicated, bittersweet, painful and wistful as you'd imagine. His plan to keep the Master this way is doomed, of course, and everyone knows it.

Tegan and Turlough, though they play supporting roles, are also characterised very well.
