This review is from: Doctor Who - Planet of Evil [DVD]  (DVD)
I was about ten when this was first broadcast and it terrified me then. So I was a bit wary of the effect it would have now but the story itself was still scary. There were ropey effects - the dessicated remains of the dead crewmen were clearly plastic mannequins. But... the basic set dressing was excellent, with a truly creepy jungle managing to up the tension factor by a immeasurable degree and with the new CGI effects for Sorenson's eyes (I assume - I don't recall them being that impressive :) ) and the Morestran weapons.
The antimatter creatures were excellent, recalling one of my favourite science fiction films, 'The Forbidden Planet', and its equally impressive id-beast.
Plenty of additional extras add to the value including one piece on how the jungle was created, and for how much - you hear how Dr Who was made on a shoe-string but to actually be shown the evidence is sort of humbling...
