Carnival of Monsters,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Doctor Who: Carnival Of Monsters [DVD]  (DVD)
This is a jolly romp where the Third Doctor and Jo Grant arrive in what appears to be the hold of a ship in the 1920s. The truth is much more surreal. This story is the first to be set away from Earth since the Doctor's release from his exile. I love this story because it has some incredibly ludicrous aliens, the lovely Shirna trying to keep her rogue-ish friend Vorg in line and ... of course ... it has Drashigs. The special effects are a bit ropey and might have benefited from a CGI update but once you put your sceptical eye on hold this turns out to be a nice little story with lots of action. Pertwee is sublime and Katy Manning, as Jo Grant, is an excellent foil for his know-all Doctor.
