Whilst it may be a touch disappointing that Barbara and The Doctor are largely incapacitated this episode, it gives Susan and Ian a chance to really show what they are made of.

On “The Dead Planet”, we see that fear is no longer driving the travellers together. Ian and Barbara are afraid of being unable to get home, whilst The Doctor and Susan do not appear to have any interest in returning to their time and place.

We now appear to have a new dynamic established. Ian and Barbara no longer appear to be guests but regular time travellers as much as The Doctor and Susan1. Just as in the previous episode, the fear of the situation is helping them gel together as a team.

Whilst the title may explicitly refer to the actual forest our time travellers enter, I wonder if it also could be said to be referring to the key narrative turning point. Up until this point The Doctor and Susan have had much to fear from humans and trust is in short supply.

Whilst officially the start of a new four part story, this is really the wind-up to the four part sojourn in early 60s London. And the conclusion is the depressing one we might expect, that it is not a place where Susan and The Doctor can be safe.

It has enough different elements to make it interesting enough, but to be straight afterwards invites unfavourable comparisons. For whilst Time and Relative can be classed as great, this is merely okay.
