Great in general!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Doctor Who: The Ice Warriors [DVD] (DVD)
I really enjoyed this, but at six episodes I felt that it dragged a bit. The Ice Warriors could also be hard to understand at times, maybe I need my ears tested!
I found the animated episodes superb. Whilst those of 'The Invasion' had given me a headache and a bad feeling, despite their visual skill, those on this DVD made me forget I was watching an animation (except when Victoria was the principle focus) and were very enjoyable to watch.
The story deals with its characters sympathetically, and although they all take radically different approaches to issues such as ultimate computer control, they do not do so in an unrealistic fashion.
Amusing to realise that Penley was Peter Sallis! A great performance there, as there was for the characters of Klent, and for the Ice Warriors themselves, including Bernard Bresslaw.
The extras on the second disk are well worth their inclusion and a fascinating insight in themselves!
