One of the best of Davison 1 April 2011
By Byron - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This is one of the best Davison stories from his mostly great final season (except for the stinker Warriors of the Deep).
This is a nifty little story (only 2 episodes) in which a small English village, under the guise of an historical reenactment and the psychic influence of a malevolent alien, is forced to recreate the violence of the 17th century English Civil War. Good performances all around and a pretty creepy alien. It's nice to see a lot of scenes in darkness and more subdued lighting unlike a lot of the blindingly overlit sets of the time. Highly recommended.

Not a classic, but fun 27 July 2011
By Makkabee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This isn't a perfect story by any means -- it combines some of the flaws of the new series (overly hurried plot) and old (laughable special effects). Still, underneath those surface flaws there's a crackling good story. The Doctor and his companions return to 20th century Britain so that Tegan can visit a relative. There they find that a local bigwig is turning a harmless village festival, a reenactment of an English Civil War battle, into something altogether more sinister. The Doctor and his companions have to figure out why, and put a stop to it, but to do so they must defeat the very people they're trying to save. Plenty of room for drama there.

In many ways this story foreshadows what Doctor Who would become in the 21st century. The short duration of the story, modern setting, and family links would all become hallmarks of the new series. (Admittedly the contemporary settings, while not part of the show's original concept, had been a feature of Doctor Who since the mid-60s).

If the story had just had a bit more room to breathe and grow it could have been a classic. If the 80s production team had recognized the limits of their budget and focused on special effects with a timeless quality (largely by hiding things as much as possible and letting audience imagination do the work instead of relying on computer graphics which would not age gracefully) that would have helped too. As it was, we're still left with a fun hour of fairly straightforward adventure, and the flaws are forgivable. After all, if you can't stand weak special effects, why are you watching Doctor Who in the first place?
One of the Better Two Part Stories. 22 Jun. 2014
By Mark Who - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Most two part Doctor Who stories are largely forgettable. But I quite enjoyed this. It was very well paced as most of Peter Davisons last and best season as The Doctor.
creepy 28 April 2013
By Mikal C. Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I've liked this storyline in who since I first saw it. Despite the awkward absence of Kamelion, this story kept me enthralled from start to end.
