Time flies with Time Flight..., 24 July 2007
I remember being a newer Doctor Who fan about four years ago and buying Time Flight on Video and finding much to enjoy in this cheap but cheerful production. I know i'm not saying anything new when I say give it a chance, but really, when watching these two stories, turn half your brain off and just sit and watch Davison try and distract you from the productions short comings with a charming performance. Davison really is a fantastic Doctor and much like Christopher Ecclestone was a very unpredictable choice of actor to play everyone's favourite time lord at the time. Davison may look young but this fith incarnation is feeling older and he knows it, for example having a lie down to figure out a problem, a lovely little character moment in a story full of lovely little moments, you watch Captain Stapley and his mates and try your darned hardest not to like them.
Tegan has had a bit of bad press over the years but i must confess i've always had a soft spot for the "mouth on legs" and Nyssa is just so lovely with Sarah Suttons subtle characterisations being a nice contrast with Janets Fieldings more obvious style of performing which lends it's self greatly to Tegans character, anyhow i'm rambling.
Arc of Infinity, again not one of Doctor Who's best outings but wonderfully entertaining all the same. Davison is firing off all cylinders in this one with his steely "i have a great deal more to say" to his immensly moving portryal of Omega wondering lost around Amsterdam. So what
if the story only begins to move in part four, theres much to enjoy along the way. This is a worthwhile purchase for anyone slightly curious about Classic Who.
