Return of another classic,
This review is from: Doctor Who - The Web of Fear [DVD] (DVD)
As we come to the end of the BBC classic Doctor Who dvd range, who would have guessed that this would turn up out of the blue to be one of the last titles!! A miracle find in 2013 along with 5 episodes of the also excellent Enemy Of The World, this sees the 2nd Doctor, Jamie and Victoria land in the middle of a near deserted London in the London Underground which is under attack by the Great Intelligence and the Yeti who are trying to take over the world. Sadly episode 3 is still missing but has been recreated using the original soundtrack and telesnaps but is still a fantastic, well acted and tense 6 part episode and the Yeti are excellent monsters seen in full for the first time on dvd as their debut The Abominable Snowmen is still sadly missing apart from one episode. This may well turn out to be Patrick Troughton's best serial untill more are redisocovered and at time of writing 97 episodes of classic Doctor Who are still sadly missing but if these can be found then i say there's hope for the others. This also sees the first appearance of one Allistair Gordon Lethbridge Stewart, a supporting character and mysterious Colonel here who would go on to be one of Doctor Who's best loved characters.
