Product Description

The Doctor (William Hartnell), Ian (William Russell), Barbara (Jacqueline Hill) and Susan (Carol Ann Ford) find themselves stranded in Aztec times when the TARDIS is trapped in a tomb. Proclaimed a goddess by the Aztec priests, Barbara attempts to change the course of history by forbidding the human sacrifices which are part of the Aztecs' religion. It is up to the Doctor to find a way back into the tomb and recover the TARDIS, before the priest Tlotoxl (John Ringham) unmasks Barbara.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best stories of the Hartnell era! 18 Mar 2000
By A Customer
The Aztecs was, in short, a magnificent episode. What you normally get from a Hartnell episode is lots and lots of padding and slow, boring bits but the Aztecs is completely different. It is a fast paced story with a good plot and wonderful acting, especially from John Ringham as Tlotoxl and Keith Pyott as Autloc. William Hartnell is, as usual brilliant as the Doctor and the other regulars all give good performances. This is a real gem and definitely worth buying.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Monochrome Masterpiece! 25 July 2000
By A Customer
The TARDIS materialises in the long-forgotten tomb of Yetaxa - once a high priest - during the lengthly reign of the Aztecs. Barbara dons a funky bracelet found next to Yetaxa's corpse and leaves the tomb, only to be captured by high priest Autloc and his Warriors... Meanwhile, the Doc and the others leave the tomb only to find the exit close behind them. There they are reunited with Barbara, who (because she's wearing Yetaxa's bracelet) has been mistaken for Yetaxa himself! Barbara sticks her nose in as usual, and tries to stop the practice of human sacrifice. The Doc must persuade her not to interfere, whilst also trying to find an alternative entrance to the tomb in order to leave in the TARDIS.......
The Aztecs is perhaps the best tale from Hartnell's reign, beating The Dalek Invasion Of Earth by a whisker, a virtually flawless production which is still so enchanting after all these years. The story is fast paced, featuring a superb musical score, some eye-popping costumes and a marvellous villain in John Ringham's scheming Tlotoxl. My enthusiasm knows no limits!

5.0 out of 5 stars THE one and only Dr WHO 30 Nov 2010
Verified Purchase
Fantastic! Yes the whole thing is shaky, the sets are worth at least a fiver, but far better than the later series. Buy it and see the master at work. PM
