4.0 out of 5 stars YOU'LL HATE IT-BUT LOOK AGAIN AND YOU'LL LOVE IT!, 13 Mar. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Doctor Who: The Happiness Patrol [VHS] [1988] (VHS Tape)
The first time I saw "The Happiness Patrol" on it's original broadcast, I was shocked. It wasn't like other Dr.Who stories, it was weird, wacky, bizarre and I HATED IT! However, when I view this story now, I absolutely love it. What a fantastic and BRAVE idea, a world where you are forced to be happy, on pain of death. The script is an absolute gem, with excellent performances all round and a dark yet wacky atmosphere. View it twice, you'll love it, maybe it doesn't have the explosions and non stop mayhem of "Remembrance of the Daleks" but is a different kind of story, one to ponder and enjoy. And did you know that Dr. Who invented THE CANDYMAN and not Clive Barker? A good buy. I only took a point off for the unrealistic studio set
