Not quite sure why another reviewer was so disappointed with the transfer as it represents a quantum leap in quality compared to the VHS tape - blacks are truly black, grain is negligible and the often jarring switch between film and videotape is minimal. The film segments have also being cleaned (just compare with the atrocious Blake's 7 DVD's from Fabulous where the film gate has distracting hair's in gate and high film grain versus smooth video jars viewer). Yes there is mild over exposure on some exterior footage but its better than fuzzy grain and you can always reduce the contrast.
Anyhow, the story is pure Sunday afternoon escapism with an above average number of outside studio footage and great team rapport between UNIT and the Doctor and his companions. Recommended.

This DVD is a reminder of just how good Dr Who was in the mid 1970s, particularly with Tom Baker as Dr Who. He is superb. The story has a strong ploy that moves along at a pace. All the UNIT favourites are there as well. Elizabeth Sladen as usual gives a brilliant performance. Good monsters too! The lead Zygon is particularly malevolent. Terror of the Zygons is a good addition to any Dr Who collection.

One of the finest Doctor Who stories ever made. They really made fans suffer by deciding to release this at the end of the range but worth the wait. An iconic monster (which finally returned in the 50th anniversary special), creepy, atmospheric and wonderfully directed. Only the 'Loch Ness monster' modelwork let's it down but not enough for it to lose its classic status.

The start of Tom Baker's second season as the Fourth Doctor and all the UNIT crew are here: Sarah-Jane, Harry Sullivan, The Brigadier and recently promoted Warrant Officer Mr Benton. Something's destroying oil rigs and a certain Scottish monster is suspected. Doctor Who stalwart John Woodnutt (Spearhead from Space, Frontier in Space, and Keeper of Traken) guest stars.

Another Classic Doctor Who story from The Golden Age of Who, Plenty of action, drama, and a few laughs thrown in for good measure, With Great direction from Douglas Camfield.

Although the "Special" effects have dated somewhat, All that being said, Lets let Zygons be bygones, Still a Great purchase and some wonderful nostalgia for us oldies.

Definetly in the top ten Doctor Who Stories of all time.
Tom Baker and all the supporting cast on top form, a superb and unusual script, stunning monster design from future Oscar Winner John Friedlander and creepy and unnerving music from Dudley Simpson.

One of the best, a must buy.

Very Highly Recommended.

I had this on vhs as a kid (born in 1986) & I loved it. It was amazing to watch it again for the first time in about 20 years. Love the costumes, special effects & the plot is amazing - it really highlights the poor script of the latest seasons. The zygons are an amazing enemy

After watching this with my (then) 8 year old daughter, this episode became known ever after as the 'Cheerio monsters one'. Once you get past the sight of Baker in a kilt, it is definitely one of the better 'classic era' Who's…..

This is another "outstanding" "classic" Who story at its best, Its in the top five of my Who collection, If you remember Dr Who from the 70's then make it part of your collection.

Great episodes from Dr Who at its very best. The series doesn't have the special effects of the new Dr Who but the stories maintain the suspense and remain very entertaining.
