Not a DOCTOR WHO STORY with a great reputation, this one, but I found myself enjoying it more than I expected.
The story's quite quirky & original, and Katy Manning in particular seems on very good form. She has some excellent, quite touching dialogue towards the end.
This was the last story to feature the Third Doctor, Jo Grant, the UNIT characters and The Master in the same story.
Roger Delgado's Master shows a new and rare side to his machinations when he tries it on with the Queen of Atlantis!
Like many six-parters it's too long, sagging round about episode 3, but coming to life again when the long overdue trip to Atlantis finally takes place.
The special effects, unfortunately have not stood the test of time (!) very well, but according to producer Berry Letts, he wasn't pleased with them back in 1972.
The extra features are nothing special.

Weaving together Time travel, the myth and reality of Atlantis, Buddhist philosophy, a half-bird and a half-bull with UNIT, the Master and the Third Doctor sounds like a recipe for total chaos – and if the Doctor loses, total chaos will be the result. But this adventure is a highly entertaining ride with a great cast, many hidden gems and never a dull moment. I think it’s far, far better than its awful reputation - just watch out for the killer pigeon… 4*

** NOTE: This story is available in the three story ‘Myths and Legends’ box set which offers excellent value. **

I really like this story and not only because Jon Pertwee is ‘my’ Doctor, but before I try to convince you, here are the things that could have been better:

- The Killer Pigeon: discovering that The Time Monster is a flapping white thing (and clearly wearing plimsolls) might seem enough to doom any story. It was intended to ‘burn out’ on screen as a white shape, but is sometimes all too visible. A technical fail rather than a conceptual one, but it isn’t on screen for long and the actors treat it with enough seriousness to *almost* pull it off.
- The Wig of Jo: Katy Manning spends the last two episodes under a massive and distracting wig, having about three times the amount of (real) hair she wears for the rest of the story!
- The Divine Dénouement: the finale between the Doctor and the Master is static and relies on a Deus Ex Machina moment of moral argument and semi-divine intervention. On the commentary, Barry Letts (who wrote it!) didn’t like it either… But again, it’s well acted and the bit before it is great, with Jo at her bravest. And the actual ending is a fun scene with the UNIT team.

The Time Monster is not one of the more popular Doctor Who stories for some reason. I have to say I really enjoyed it. This 6 part story sees the Doctor once again pitted against his old enemy The Master (superbly played by Roger Delgardo). The story features all the UNIT regulars Sgt. Benton, Jo Grant, Captain Mike Yates and the Brigadier (played by the sadly missed Nicholas Courtney). This story also features the late Ingrid Pitt (famous for the classic Hammer horror films Countess Dracula and The Vampire Lovers as well as The House That Dripped Blood an Amicus Anthology film which also features Jon Pertwee).

The pictures quality is excellent having been cleaned up and remastered along with the sound. There is an entertaing commentary track by various members of the cast and crew. The track by John Levene (Sgt. Benton) is particually enjoyable. There is no making off feature which is slightly dissapointing. This American dvd is region 1 coded so you will need a multi regional machine in order to play the dvd. If like me you love the Jon Pertwee Doctor who stories which feature UNIT the you could do alot worse than The Time Monster - so ignore the critics and give this excellent story a try.

This is from the John Pertwee era of Doctor Who, he and Tom Baker were my favourite Doctors. This story also features the brilliant Roger Delgardo as The Master and Katy Manning as The Doctor's companion Jo.
There's also a birdman and the lost city of Atlantis. This is from before the days of CGI, so the effects are a bit hit and miss. The acting though, as with other series from the same decade, like Blake's 7, is impressive..
