5.0 out of 5 stars WOTAN to take over the world, 7 Sept. 2008
This review is from: Doctor Who: The War Machines [DVD] (DVD)
Well after many months of waiting one of favourite William Hartnell stories has been released onto DVD.

This is without doubt a brilliant story which even today still has that same fear, of computers trying to take over humans and for them to rule mankind, its done in a very effective but simplistic way and so just becareful next time you answer your telephone

The departure of Dodo was rather sudden and i think not very well thought through,one minute she is recuperating, the next she is no longer wanting to travel with the Doctor and thats that, all though it does introudce i believe one of the top travelling companions that have travelled with the Doctor, Ben (Michael Craze)& Polly (Anneke Wilks) they have a brilliant chemistry on screen and throughout this story, the only sad fact is that most of the stories featuring Ben & Polly now only exist on Audio Recordings as the cretins and BBC junked all the existing reels.

The extras on this DVD are also worth mentioning, the Blue Peter clips from where the BT tower (now telecom tower) first openened were brilliant and too see how different it looks now to when it did back in the 60's is brilliant and also a little bonus at the start and end of this section, the Now & Then featurette which shows scenes where it was filmed was also a fascinating insight to how things have changed in 40 years
