5.0 out of 5 stars One Of The Best Ever Adventures. 7 Nov 2013
If you had to force a Dr Who Fan to choose the best five adventures ever then The Talons of Weng-Chiang would be in the top five.
For many Talons of Weng Chiang is the best ever I would agree it was excellent and stays in the mind long after others have faded..

Why is this so good?
It really is a combinations of factors that all come together to make the whole.

Firstly Tom Baker- for many he is the best Doctor but in Talons of Weng Chiang he really excels. His humour, comic timing and mannerisms are spot on. Jokes come thick and fast my favourite has to be when he dodges an axe thrown by an assassin, turns and asks "Are you trying to attract my attention?"
Baker plays the parody up to the hilt well right up to his Sherlock Holmes like Deerstalker hat and cane.
His companion Leela- the delightful Louise Jameson sheds her skins- literally and wears a strange Victorian Garb knickerbockers that enable her to kick, gouge and poleaxes her assailants with ease. Her questions about London really bring the strangeness of London to the fore.
The script writer is excellent and has written the finest script of a whole series.

The setting Victorian London all `Pea Soup Smog's' and river mists. The Bobbies on the Beat whistle calls and the Victorian Music Hall.
Disappearing ladies ala Jack the Ripper. Add to this the terror of the Chinese Tongs thugs all tattooed with the Black Scorpion led by a Chinese John Bennett as the villainous Li H'sen Chang (last seen by the Doctor in China over 400 years ago).
And wait for it...
