Lost in Spaaaace!,
This review is from: The Second Doctor Box Set (Doctor Who: The Lost Stories) (Audio CD)
Following on from the excellent Lost collections featuring the First, Sixth, Seventh and Fifth Doctors, comes this collection taken from the era of the Beatles, Cold War and pre-decimalisation; and it shows. Prison in Space is billed as an attempt by the (then) production team to 'lighten' the series up, so what we have is a Carry-On style romp, complete with domineering woman wearing skin-tigh t rubber uniforms, prat-falls aplenty, Jamie dressing up as an old lady, and most gruesome of all, a toad-faced female dictator falling in love with The Doctor..!
Whilst some of this is tongue-in-cheek fun, I feel it does nothing for the show at all, and is best seen as a nostalgic curiosity.
A disc full of extras gives more insight into the way Doctor Who was produced in the late 1960s, while another lost story featuring Space Agent Sara Kingdom and lots of Daleks, completes the collection.
