4.0 out of 5 stars A box set will real linking stories, 16 Jan. 2011
This review is from: Doctor Who - The Black Guardian Trilogy: Mawdryn Undead / Terminus / Enlightenment [DVD] (DVD)
I always felt Peter Davidson was never role of the Dr long enough. Season two was not only a disappointment to him but to also fans ending early due to strikes. Anyway these three linked stories stand up quite well. The first uses that concept from Back to the future Part 2 of erasing your past and the story works very well although it does make you question past explanations as to when Who' stories were set (Pertwee stories were set five years in the future, so the Brig in 1977 would still be in UNIT). With the introduction of Turlough who you really don't like at first and its nice that the viewer knows more about him than the Tardis crew,however, how long can you sustain the idea that he is trying to kill the Dr?, Its nice to see Brigadier back, even if you need to forget past stories with the two incarnations, it is defiantly the best of the three stories. Terminus is Sarah Sutton's last story and a good yarn, but I always felt was the weakest of the three, and the idea of Turlough still trying to kill the Dr gets a little predictable and unbelievable as you know it can never happen anyway. Enlightment is bound to get the most attention here as it is available in two versions. The original as broadcast and a special 75 min 6.9 ratio with 5.1 sound re edited by Fiona Cumming the original director.In some ways it is a difficult story to follow but this is the climax and has to tie all the loose ends together. There are a lot of good extras on all the discs making This makes this a four disc set. Its very interesting when you are presented with a different look at an old story which is not a replacement to the original. This is a great edition to the DVD and a good price now to buy.
