Definately the best of the Doctor Who spin-offs I've seen so far and wouldn't look out of place among the originals.
Auton features UNIT, the Nestenes and Autons from BBCTVs Dr. Who. The drama is set soley in a warehouse, and without giving too much plot away, is focused on a mysterious character 'Lockwood' who works for UNIT and is investigating 'strange happenings' at a UNIT research lab.
This drama has as good, if not better production values as its predecessor (Dr. Who), and a tight script, and a real sense of terror and suspense. It keeps your attention throughout, which is richly rewarded in the end. It is the first in a trilogy of of videos, and is well worth investing in.
It also has 'the making of' at the videos conclusion, which is very revealing, and shows just what a labour of love the project really was. It is also surprising to realise how 'broadcastable' the drama is on such a 'shoestring' budget.
If you like Dr. Who, Sci-fi or just a good thriller...this is definatley for you, you will not be disappointed - BUY IT
