Serious sixties Who,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Doctor Who - The Enemy of the World [DVD] (DVD)
Another lost classic rediscovered in 2013 (along with Web of Fear).
This story might seem a little drier than regular Doctor Who of the period as it doesn't rely on monsters at all but presents a tale of a fascist future.
Troughton gives a masterclass in acting playing both the Doctor and the villainous Salamander, plus in turns both characters attempting to portray the other- though there was far more of this than I expected.
Highlights- the Doctor gleefully running on the beach in part one and the surprisingly good (for the time) special effects at the end.
SPOILERPHOBES- if you've never seen this story don't watch the trailer first.
