Curses on you, Dr Who,
This review is from: Doctor Who - The Dæmons [DVD] (DVD)
Along with the majority of your reviewers, I am also enamoured by this Pertwee classic, which is better than most Sci Fi movies I've seen. This along with the Tom Baker's episodes 'Talons of Weng-Chiang' and 'Horror of Fang Rock' are my favourite older Who episodes.
I find The Daemons special because it reminds me of the third Quatermass movie 'Quatermass and the Pit' also known as '5 Million Years to Earth', a well loved and valued movie. This Who episode takes itself quite seriously and is an unusually frightening episode of the genre. Pertwee and Manning are in fine form as is Nick Courtney. Love the Master back in form and enjoyed the side characters (the witch, the archeologist, the little daemon). Great viewing
I also have an old VHS copy I treasure, and wait patiently for the powers to release it finally to DVD.
