I didn't mean that any of them were acting out of character, I haven't seen enough of Tegan or Nyssa to be able to judge that, just that they were being poorly utilized.
In Nyssa's case, that's partly because Four to Doomsday was written for two companions before they decided to keep Nyssa on halfway through rehearsals on The Keeper of Traken.
If you bear that in mind while watching it, you can spot the moments when Tegan suddenly decides to stand quietly in the background, as she was about to say something technical, so that means Nyssa can nick her lines... and the moment a few minutes later when Nyssa suddenly shuts up, so Tegan can take over again for the shouty bits.
