Episode 1:
This is the animated version of The Macra Terror.
Didn't notice it until I read about it afterwards that this the animated first episode lacks the Rough and Tumble scene.
Perhaps the animators found this too much of a challenge to re-create especially the beauty treatment on the Doctor.
Quite a shame that this scene could not be re-created.
During that scene, Polly had her hair cut but for this the animated version her hair was already cut when the story started.
Fascinating that the Doctor, Ben, Polly and Jamie found themselves in the Colony after foiling an attack by one of its residents Medok.
All seems very happy but the Doctor begins to believe Medox that something is indeed very wrong with the Colony.
Very good how this all builds up to the Macra at the cliffhanger.

Episode 2:
Oh no Ben has turned traitor as the Doctor failed to prevent the influence of that voice on Ben.
Exciting moment when Ben and Polly faces Macras.
Fascinating cliffhanger when the real face of Control just as he is attacked by a Macra.

Episode 3:
Intriguing that much of this episode was at the pits.
The Doctor was sure impressed when he gave himself 11/10 for figuring out a formula and denies to Pilot that he look at any file for it, saying that it came from his head.
Reminded that I myself gave the same answer to a teacher by the name of Karen Mould when I wrote something down.
Quite sneaky when Jamie stole those keys.
Too bad about Medok as he meet his end.
What a cliffhanger as Jamie is surrounded by Macras.

Episode 4:
Enthralling conclusion.
Funny when Jamie does the Highland Fling to get away from the cheerleaders but gets caught by Ola and his guards.
What a moment when the Doctor showed Pilot the Macras.
Impressive on Ben being back to his old self and helps in defeating the Macra.
There is a noticeable difference with the ending in this the animated version to the original episode.
The original episode had the Doctor and his companions doing their Highland Fling escape after Ben told the Doctor that the colonists were going to make the Doctor their next Pilot but the animated version omits the Highland Fling escape and ends with a shot of the Colony after Ben tells the Doctor the said news.
Evidently the animators could not make the group Highland Fling work.
