5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible., 29 Sept. 2005
This review is from: Doctor Who - The Talons Of Weng Chiang [1977] [DVD] [1963] (DVD)
The Talons of Weng Chiang defies all the budgetary limitations imposed upon the series (despite it being slightly higher here than usual) and paired with a first rate script from the late great Robert Holmes, the result is an extroadinary mish-mash of old literary "classics" combined with breath taking production values (ahh, the giant Rat wasn't THAT bad)
For many, it represents the peak of the show and it isn't difficult to see why. The characterisation is superb with an intricate plot, bravura performances and an atmosphere that is evoked so perfectly. Misty Streets at night time, menacing sewer scenes and stalking killers parading the alleyways of London.
As for it not "mirroring real life issues", many would say that Science Fiction is a means to escape from realities hence the tag "Fantasy" that is often labelled alongside programmes such as Dr Who.
Buy this to see what magic Dr Who truly is.
