ANOTHER CLASSIC FROM A WRONGLY MALIGNED ERA OF DOC WHO!!,
This review is from: Doctor Who: Underworld [VHS] (VHS Tape)
Why has the Graham Williams era always been so heavily criticised? In my view, I cant see any forgettable or stupid stories at all. All I can remember are classics like Image Of The Fendahl and The Ribos Operation and The Sun Makers and The Pirate Planet and need I go on?! Oh yeah, City Of Death too! And heres another story to join the ranks as a classic in Doctor Who history.
Underworld has also been criticised for its CSO use with all the caves, but i think the story doesnt look that bad at all. And yet again then are great comic moments, such as when Leela is passified, this scene is one opf my favourite scenes ever of Doctor Who, she just looks so great! And this story is far better than moronic star wars, even if it doesnt have any real monsters. Star Wars is total garbage, for all of it so called brilliant effects it doesnt even start to gel with me, but the Doc always has! Hes far more likeable than that rubbish. And Tom Baker is as powerful as ever! So altogether, a well directed and produced story with great acting and great moments that ends up with a thoroughly entertaining story.
