aka the man in green bubble wrap attacks,
This review is from: Doctor Who - The Ark In Space  [DVD]  (DVD)
fundamentally, this is a good story.
dated by todays special effects and pace, but must have been quite striking at the time.
the show is the start of a seasonal four story arc, which technically ends with Revenge of the Cybermen, (the sontaran experiment and genesis of the daleks saandwiched between them).
Naturally, this was to save money during a very tight season, presumably, most of the cash was spent on Genesis, as technically, that story seemed better.
Typical dr who, bubble wrap sprayed green must have been extremely fearful in the mid-seventies, i still to this day feel sorry for the actor who had to endure these scenes, dressed in plastic like he was... ;-)
still, its an enjoyable dr who romp, and well worth a buy
