For 200 years the secret of Devil's End village has lain dormant, as the burial mound, the so-called Devil's Hump, has remained sealed. Until now, at midnight on April 30th on the greatest occult festival of the year, as Professor Horner prepares to break it open. But just what evil treasures lie buried there? Will the local white witch's warnings of doom and destruction be fulfilled? Who or what is the mighty Azal? But even more disturbing for the Doctor and Jo, just how is the Reverend Magister, alias the infamous Master, involved in the mystery?

Recently re-shown on BBC4 this is one of the greatest episodes of Doctor Who ever . It was the last episode of Jon Pertwee,s second series( May and June 1971) set at a time when the Doctor had been confined to earth by his fellow Time Lords .( A move based on finance as the BBC didn't want to shell out for expensive sets needed for inter planetary travel) It harks back to classic English sci-fi /horror like "Quatermass" , "The Devil Rides Out" "The Witches" and numerous Dennis Wheatley novels which invariably had a satanic coven led by the vicar. Of course the entity appearing in this story -written by Barry Letts and Chris Storman with Terrance Dicks as script editor - is actually an alien which has been released from its confinement under "Devils End" to pronounce judgement on the race they had genetically altered 100,000 years before .
It's a brilliantly conceived highly atmospheric story with the benefit of the U.N.I.T team featuring the supremely stiff upper lip Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart(Nicholas Courtney) rattling out superbly phlegmatic orders like "Jenkins, chap with wings there ...five rounds ...rapid". There is also The Doctors car "Bess" The Master( Roger Delgado) posing as the vicar "Magister" ( Master in Latin as the Doctor points out) who wants the powerful alien entity to pass its powers on to him and the sprightly Jo Grant (Katy Manning) whose act of self sacrifice at the end so confuses the alien Azal ( Stephen Thorne) that he self destructs .it's a rather lame ending in truth but there is some wonderful action and dialogue in between and as a lad of seven I found the gargoyle "Bok" (Stanley Mason) very creepy .

I could watch this over and over again. It terrified me as a child, and that's because it was soooo well done! An absolutely classic performance from both Pertwee (Dr Who) and Delgado (the devilishly handsome Master). Great creepy scenes of black magic in a deserted vicarage. I would give this 6 stars if I could.

This is the best Jon Pertwee Doctor Who series in my opinion, and my opinion is based on a rather poor VHS version and memories from 35 years ago. Sadly there isn't any sign of this being available on DVD in the near future. Maybe Amazon know something we don't?

Some of the special effects look dated now, but the brooding atmosphere and demonic creatures left an indelible mark on me as a 10 year old. Another reason for its excellence was one of the earliest appearances of the Master, who was marvellously played by Roger Delgado.

However when it is eventually released it will hopefully include a documentary that was made in the early 1990's when the cast revisted the location the series was filmed at, as well as the commentaries that previous reviewers have mentioned.

Sofas were made for stories like these. This was the 'Blink' of its time. It's funny how bloomin scary stone statues can be eh? It's all I hold dear in Dr Who, the Brigadier and UNIT, Joe Grant and The Master. Its fast, exciting, full of action and atmosphere. If you are new to Who I cannot recommend this DVD enough.

"Benton, chap with the wings there, five rounds rapid!" One of the best lines of the whole series, the immortal words of the brigadier upon seeing Bok the gargoyle.
