3.06. Destroy the Infinite
'On the surface it’s a Boys’ Own adventure, but there are some meatier issues addressed, and a new enemy introduced. Recommended. 9/10' Paul Simpson SFB
'With the thrill-o-meter set at eleven, ‘Destroy The Infinite’ is a fast-paced, furious drama that doesn’t let up for even a single second, carving its plot directly into the heart of the Whoniverse, while establishing and creating the legend of The Eminence.' Tim, Mass Movement.
The colony planet Delafoss is occupied by the army of a rapacious alien force known only as the Eminence. These slave armies of terrified humans are commanded by the dreaded Infinite Warriors - impervious to most forms of firepower, voices like icy death.
The Doctor and Leela arrive expecting to find Earth’s most successful, unspoiled colony. Instead, they are confronted by a planet choked by industrialization. And at the heart of it all, the construction of something that the Eminence intends will wipe out all human resistance once and for all.
For the first time in his life, the Doctor confronts the Eminence… and things will never be quite the same again.
