5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic!, 28 May 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Doctor Who: The Ambassadors of Death [VHS] (VHS Tape)
In 1970 the BBC clearly became very excited about colour television. This is displayed in the garish sets and clothes displayed in "The Ambassadors of Death". Sadly only episode one was retained in colour. Recently colour recordings recorded off air in the United States came to light, and these have been used to restore more than ninety minutes of this release to colour. It's wonderful, simple as that. Well written and more "Quatermass" or "Edge of Darkness" than typical "Doctor Who". The finished piece is exciting, enjoyable, well written and most importantly, good television. Good "Doctor Who" to me is a story which would work just as well with a different "hero" instead of the Doctor. This is one such story, however Mr.Pertwee is wonderful. Personal treat for me? "Crossroads" David Hunter, the wonderful Ronnie Allen, proving he's a damn good actor. (If you've seen the original Titanic film "A Night to Remember", you will already know this.) Buy this story! It's cheap considering it's almost three hours long and it is hugely enjoyable.
