5.0 out of 5 stars
Why isn't it out on DVD yet?, 17 Jan. 2003
One of the best Tom Baker stories. It's got atmosphere, and for John Carpenter fans, it has a director who know's his stuff, who know's how the series works. Douglas Camfield who directed this has always reminded me of Carpenter, but by tv standards. He know's what his budget is, but he pushes it to it's limitations and is creative with it. Apart from just 'one' scene in Antarctica, where fake snow is evident, the scenes there are brilliantly filmed, that even John Carpenter himself would admire the work of a director, who like himself had to use his creative talent as opposed to huge budgets to bring a film in on time and to a high standard.
