Despite some of the negative critisisims on the "Padding" on this serial, the final one by Jon Pertwee as the Doctor, It is my all time favorite Doctor Who Serial, Classic or New. Jon brought an elagance to the role that has never been duplicated.
Yes, I am a Yank. But you British have a very nasty habbit of making vastly superior Television than we do, even at it's worst. I got hooked on Doctor Who way back in 1975,when Time Life Television first brought Tom Baker's Doctor to America, terribly cut, and with those absolutely horrid Howard Da Silvia narrative inserts. But several years later, some PBS stations started running uncut Jon Pertwee Doctor Who Serials, and I became hooked forever. So a tip of the hat to Jon Pertwee and of course, the forever lovely Liz Sladen for turning me into a life long Who fan.
