5.0 out of 5 stars Classic series - lovely surprise!, 26 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Doctor Who: Earthshock [DVD] (DVD)
Don't ask me why, but for some strange reason, during the 1980's, I strayed away from Doctor Who. Having decided to give these stories a go, I was delighted at how wonderful the stories were. The companions, the acting and, of course the Doctors.
This one was Peter Davison. He's a far cry from Tom Baker or William Hartnell, but he cleverly adds something new and yet the same, to the role of the Time Lord.

This story, "Earthshock" is very cleverly layered to rack up maximum tension. Deadly androids exterminating pretty well anyone in range, hiding the real villains, the Cybermen. The Cybermen look the best ever. Although "So! We meet again, Doctor!" sounded very odd coming from a race supposedly stripped of emotions!

Beryl Reid, great, as the bonus hungry Captain of the space freighter. The Doctor eventually gained her trust as the crew discovered that they would need the Doctor's help.

This story set is obviously one of the ones with money in it. The screenplay, the sets and the Cybermen all looked very good.

There is tragedy at the end, which hasn't been seen in Doctor Who since the 1960's. Have some tissues handy.
