Another adventure for everyone's favourite time-traveller - Dr Who!
Answering the Brigadier's space/time telegraph, the Doctor (Tom Baker), Sarah (Elisabeth Sladen) and Harry (Ian Marter) arrive in the village of Tulloch, near Loch Ness. A series of attacks have taken place on local oil rigs, and many are blaming the legendary monster. The Doctor discovers the creature to be the Skarasen- cyborg pet of invading aliens the Zygons. Their own planet having been destroyed and their spaceship crippled, these deadly shape-shifters are now intent upon taking control of the planet Earth.

In this wonderful tartan-clad Highland fling, we have the Doctor, Sarah-Jane, The Brigadier, Harry and Mr Benton (wondered why they called him that throughout but he's been newly promoted to Warrant Officer!) up against the Zygons at Tulloch Moor and nearby Loch Ness with their secret weapon - the Skarasen, known to the locals as Nessie!! To be fair it's not the most convincing of monsters but then this is a 1975 low budget family show. However the location filming (even though not shot in Scotland), the story and the acting more than make-up for that.
A very enjoyable - repeat watchable - story.
The new Doctor Who when it comes to special fx is superior, but the stories are not. In this story the Brig calls the Doctor back to earth due to ... Well I won't spoil the plot, but the acting to brilliant from all concerned.
It is also the last time we will see Harry and Benton until The Android Invasion and even they are robots.
Not only do we get a good story, but also deleted scenes and commentary. I am sure Elizabeth Sladen would have done this had she not passed away. Sadly that was not to be.
Then of course this is a double DVD feature and all for less than 8 pounds.
Overally I found this to be a great story the only downside being it does drag in Part 3. Despite this the Zygons come across very menacing and Elisabeth Sladen makes this story 10 times more enjoyeable than it already is.
Would highly recommend.
Obviously the overall production and sfx quality can't match the modern Dr Who, yet there is a quality about story-development, cliffhangers and atmosphere that is nicer about many of these old ones. They seem to mix humour and Doctor-authority better than now. New ones have too much reliance on the Sonic Screwdriver/gun/tricorder. Probably me getting old and sentimental...
Anyway, certainly a good one for the collection - though I'm not too sure about using Chivers jelly for a spaceship control panel :)
