Classic 70's Doctor Who,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Doctor Who - The Claws of Axos [DVD] (DVD)
Forget the negative comments about this story - it's great. The special effects (for its time) are excellent especially the tenticled Axon costume and the Axon ship. The Axons are one of my faverite Doctor Who monsters and I wish that they would return in the new series.
This story also features The Master superbly played by the late great Roger Delgardo. To date this is the only dvd with Delgardo's Master released which is a shame. Come on 2Entertain how about releasing The Sea Devils, Terror Of The Autons or The Daemons. There havnt been any Jon Pertwee dvds released for a while now (I am looking forward to The Time Warrior dvd next week).
This dvd also benefits from excellent special features including a "now and then" location doccumentary and an entertaining commentary track. So if you enjoy 70's tv nostalgia or classic Doctor Who at its best then this dvd is for you.

So many Pertwee stories are in a poor state of preservation and need a lot of work to bring them up to scratch - The Daemons and Ambassadors of Death being the worst examples. That said, a Mind of Evil appears to be making its way out of the lab, with a full colour restoration. Wahey!

At last more Jon Pertwee stories are being released. Next month we have Day Of The Daleks with new footage and special effects plus Nick Briggs voicing the Daleks, then in October we have Colony In Space which features Roger Delgardo as The Master. Can't wait.
