4.0 out of 5 stars Dino-Tastic!, 23 Oct. 2003
This review is from: Doctor Who - Invasion Of The Dinosaurs [1973] [VHS] (VHS Tape)
Although 'Invasion of the Dinosaurs' lacks the refine qualities of Spielbergs 'Juarssic Park', it really hits the spot for good, family entertainment.
The story is a brake from tradition, the Doctor arriving after the danger occurs, to a London menaced by dinosaurs. With new companion Sarah Jane, our hero must find a way to stop history from repeating and uncover a secret Government plot.
The pace is excellent, unlike many of Pertwees six-parters which often begin to pad after episode three. This one does not.
The story is inventive, the character twists are fascinating and the locations in and around London are exciting because they feature..well, dinosaurs.
As stated, this story is over thirty years old and has aged badly in comparison to recent movies and TV programmes, but if you ignore this one problem, the story is enjoyable and can be appreciated by any child wanting to see Doctor Who for the first time.
