"We're on Terminus. We're On A Lazar Ship. We're all gonna die!"
The second story in the Black Guardian Trilogy is Terminus. While not one of the more spectacular stories from The Fifth Doctor’s era but it does have significance in the shows history. Terminus is the story where Nyssa leaves the TARDIS crew to help and cure the Lazars.
With so much going on Tegan and Turlough are regulated to the sidelines as they spend most of the story in hiding or locked under the floor in the service area for most of the story. Another thing about Terminus is that some of the costumes are pretty funny. I am talking about the funky space helmets that are worn by Kari and Olvir who just happen to be very unlucky pirates.
So join us for Terminus and judge for yourself. Terminus is a story that is ok with some fine performances and some good moments. Terminus also has one really touching farewell scene that is truly heart felt and sad as The Doctor is very moved by Nyssa’s departure.
