Dr Who - The Time Warrior (1973/1974) - When Dr Who said hello to The Legendary Sarah Jane Smith,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Doctor Who - The Time Warrior [DVD] (DVD)I would like to give Dr Who - The Time Warrior `5' stars to the welcome introduction to the Legendary Sarah Jane Smith played by Elizabeth Sladen. As in previous story, The Green Death we said goodbye to the wonderful and endearing Jo Grant (Katy Manning), and this was a touching moment for my joint number one Doctor (Jon Pertwee) and the guys from UNIT. Both Jo Grant and Sarah Jane Smith were always my joint number one companions, but in my opinion, I found that Katy Manning's character Jo Grant worked better with the Third Doctor (Jon Pertwee), and Elizabeth Sladen's character Sarah Jane Smith works better with the Fourth Doctor (Tom Baker).
Jon Pertwee's final five stories as the Third Doctor comes into full force in this story shows the change in direction to make way to my other joint number one Dr Who - Tom Baker. Both the supporting cast of Nicholas Courtney, David Daker, Donald Pelamer, June Brown (I hate Eastenders, and have not seen it when it started), John J Carney, Alan Rowe, and especially Aussie actor Kevin Lindsay who deserves all acting glory as the Sontaran Officer Linx. The Sontaran are the first humanoid alien menace that the Doctor has regularly faced.
For all 1970s Doctor Who, please buy the Time Warrior as part of you collection as the start of the Sarah Jane Smith era with my two joint number one doctors - Jon Pertwee and Tom Baker. Its a pity that you have to buy 'The Cyberman Boxset' to complete your 1970s collection, because you will be lumbed with the absolutely rubbish 3rd rate Slyvester McCoy Dr Who pantomine 'Silver Nemesis'.
