4.0 out of 5 stars Good Fun !!!, 2 Dec. 2003
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Doctor Who - The Two Doctors [1984-86] [DVD] [1963] (DVD)
I can understand why hardcore WHO fans hate this release, as it does take liberties with the history of the doctor. But I have to say that I found this to be an entertaining and well-made journey into the more ridiculous realms of eighties british sci-fi. You've got the fantastic Jacqueline Pearce (Servalan from Blakes 7) in top form as one of the villains of the piece, along with a crazed Androgun who looks like a possessed Brian Cant obsessed with eating Human Flesh. There's also another guy who looks like Trevor Horn from The Buggles era playing some kind of official. The spain footage gives a nice quality and warmth to the show, Colin Baker is endearing, Peri is great fun and Patrick Troughton is also a treat to watch although he doesn't actually do a hell of a lot as he was obviously quite old by the time he filmed this - the scenes where he is transformed into an Androgun are just downright wacky! Fraser Hines suprisingly gives a convincing portrayal of the young Jamie too. Overall, this is definately NOT to be taken seriously, so if you are the sort of Doctor Who fan who knows the show's history backwards then this will most probably not impress - for anyone who is looking for some colourfully bizarre, unique and amusing entertainment should step this way!!!
