'That b'aint how you makes fruit cake!',
This review is from: Doctor Who - Image of the Fendahl [DVD]  (DVD)
So, 2Entertain are having a strong spring 2009; The peerless 'Deadly Assassin' and now this superb story from the Graham Williams produced late 1970s era both released on DVD.
Image of the Fendahl is one of the stories spoken of as 'the Gothic era Doctor Who', and with its supernatural overtones, creepy mansion and mad scientist, it certainly ticks many of the boxes for Gothic horror. Sadly, most of the superb cast were unavailable for the DVD extras but there is a great interview with Edward Arthur who played irreverent scientist Adam Colby. Although the story's central threat - a green slimy monster in true Who style - is not that well realised, the creepy atmosphere and strong performances - Baker is awesome - make this a great slice of classic Doctor Who.
