Four To Doomsday

The Doctor is attempting to take Teagan back to Earth so she can start her job as an airline stewardess (SO much better than traveling with The Doctor, am I right?) and, surprise surprise, they miss their destination.  Once again, the TARDIS has not taken the Doctor where he wanted to go, but has taken him exactly where he needs to be.  Where he needs to be, in this case, is on a Urbankan ship heading towards Earth, a trip they've made a few times before as evidenced by the odd collection of people from various points in Earth's past.  We've got someone from ancient Greece, a Mandarin, a Mayan and an Australian Aboriginal, which sounds like the setup for the worst joke ever.  The Doctor has to figure out why all these people are here and what the Urbankans are planning for this visit.

I'm still trying to wrap my head around Peter Davison's Doctor after what was essentially his first REAL story.  I think it's going to take at least a few more stories before I figure out what kind of Doctor he's going to be.  Overall, I enjoyed this story, but didn't find it particularly memorable.  Let's see what the next one brings~
