Dr Who - The Face of Evil (1977) - When Dr Who became Dr Henry Higgins (My Fair Lady),
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Doctor Who: The Face Of Evil [DVD] (DVD)
The Face of Evil is the beginning of the new era for Dr Who. It all started in January 1977 when viewers, especially the male population caught their first sights of Louise Jamieson as Leela. Leela was very different to the Doctor's previous assistant Sarah Jane Smith. Leela was savage, but she was very brave in an understanding way.
I would like to say to any Tom Baker fan to get this adventure as the acting is first class from the lead actors Tom Baker and Louise Jamieson to the brilliant casting of the Savateem from Brendan Price as Tomas, Victor Lucas as Andor, Leslie Schofield as Calid to the casting of the Tesh from Leon Eagles as Jabel and Miles Ellis as Gentek, but all acting glory goes to David Garfield as the Savateem Holy, but misguided mystic Neeva who grand and over top performance is the crowning glory to this 1977 Dr Who adventure.
I am looking forward to more 1970s classics like the Mind of Evil, The Ambassadors of Death, Terror of the Zygons, Nightmare of Eden, plus the BBC should issue a seperate Special Edition DVD of 'The Revenge of the Cybermen' (similar to the 1972 Jon Pertwee Dr Who adventure 'Day of the Daleks') for true 1970s Dr Who Tom Baker fans. The BBC should also use advance and realistic CGI to re-create the missing 1979 Tom Baker adventure 'Shada'.
