Not a bad note to go out on,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Doctor Who - Survival [DVD]   (DVD)
I have never seen the final episode before, the BBC's insane plan of pitting Doctor Who against Coronation Street meaning that in my shared student house, we were able to win and see the first 2 episodes, but we lost the vote and never saw the last one, as Coro won!
Its not a bad story, though the menace could be higher. I don't mind the animatronic cats not looking quite like real cats, since they AREN'T real cats, they are kitlings. And I didn't mind the over-furry cheatah people, in fact I had a mental cheer whenever Kara, or another on horseback, appeared. They definitely had a certain menace about them.
The plot was great, and the performances from McCoy, Sophie and Anthony Ainley were all good, even Hale and Pace did a hilarious skit in the shop!
But I feel that the underlying menace did not come through the story on screen as well as it should have.
The extras on the DVD were fantastic, both the very well done Catflap documentaries, and the Endgame documentary on the lost future for the series, following its cancellation.
The voiceover as McCoy and Sophie walk into the distance sent chills down my spine knowing that I would only ever see them hence in the New Adventure novelisations...
