An okay script produced very well,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Doctor Who: The Ambassadors of Death [DVD] (DVD)
It is long, it does have some problems with the colour, and the script did pass through too many hands in an effort to get it up onto the screen; however, it is played with a great deal of conviction by the cast, and the director really pulled out the stops despite Who's limited budget.
There is a lot of the Brigadier, UNIT, the always intelligent Liz Shaw, and gun-battles; there isn't any Tardis or alien worlds. Always having heard that this was a boring, overlong adventure, I was surprised to find myself really enjoying it.
If you like your Doctor Who camp and imaginative, this probably isn't going to be your cup of tea; if you like it played seriously and thoughtful, along the lines of Doctor Who and the Silurians, and Inferno, then this might well end up in your top ten.
