4.0 out of 5 stars Priceless Archive Who, 23 Jan 2007
The BBC's ongoing releases of archive Doctor Who continues to excel with this their most ambitious project to date. Originally released on VHS in the early 1990's "The Invasion" is one of many stories from Patrick Troughton's tenure which are incomplete.

Werner Herzog's second feature film still retains its ability to both shock and disturb and highlights the maverick German's propensity to covet controversy and take risks. In it's depiction of a world entirely made up of dwarves he forces the audience to ask the uncomfortable question of what it is too be normal? The film's detailing of a dwarf uprising at an unnamed and mysterious institution, has an allegorical echo of the many protests and rebellions hitting the USA, Mexico and Germany itself around the turn of the decade.
