5.0 out of 5 stars "Pompous, self-opinionated idiot, I believe you said, Doctor." "Well, yes - but we don't want to hold a grudge now, do we?", 24 Feb 2013
This review is from: Doctor Who - Inferno [DVD] [1970] (DVD)
This story, by the way - is brilliant. It contains the first concepts of a parallel world in Doctor Who (and the only, for a very long time), a fantastic story line at Jon Pertwee at his best. The Prymoids could be seen as a little bit unbelievable by today's standards, but hey - this was the seventies!

Some of the effect sequences in this story (namely the Doctor's journey through the black void to the parallel world) are brilliant, and the 'evil' personas of The Brig and Liz Shaw give us a chance to see Caroline John and Nic Courtney at their best. But seriously, what IS Liz doing in that ridiculous get-up.

This story is a seven-parter, that perhaps would have worked better as a six parter (or even a four parter), and hopefully the picture quality will be improved on the special edition version.
