This has always been one of my favourate Doctor Who stories ever since I heard a copy of the original off-air recording. Since then I have gone through the novelisation and the telesnap reconstruction with a fine tooth comb, and now that the BBC have released this story on audio it seems almost complete. It is only with hindsight that we can actually see how important this story was. It included the first appearance of Lethbridge-Stewart, a character which was to appear with the five predecessors to Troughton as the Doctor, and it also laid the foundations for the United Nations Intelligence Taskforce (or UNIT) which was to make it's first appearance later in the Troughton era in 'The Invasion'. The Web of Fear was also the last proper (and the best) appearance of the Yeti. This is in many ways a shame. They were at the time amongst the most popular enemies of the Doctor (barring of course the Daleks and the Cybermen), and had it not been for a fall out between Haisman and Lincoln [the creators of the Yeti, and writers of this story], they would probably have played a prominent role in future Doctor Who stories. However, it was not to be, and their final outing is certainly a worthy one. The BBC release of this story is done to perfection with the audio crystal-clear, and Frazer Hines linking narration completely unobtrusive and extremely appropriate. I just hope that the BBC continue to delve into Doctor Who's lost past through the use of audio... There may not be any pictures, but it's far better than nothing!
