1. There were 48 States in the United States in 1938, not 49 as Chaney claims.
2. The CIA was not established until 1947, almost nine years after the events portrayed here.
3. Welles fails to recognise a Shakespearean quotation.
4. Don Chaney claims to own a 1929 Lamborghini previously owned by Al Capone, but Lamborghinis did not exist until 1963.Read more ›
It does need several hearings, like a good court case, to really appreciate the fun of the whole enterprise and the sheer love of the form that Gatiss possesses.
I think this is his best script for Doctor Who in any format. The TV episode seemed somehow too hidebound (and the Doctor in that one was so GULLIBLE...) and constricted. "Invaders From Mars" would make a great David Tennant story though!
Four stars because it does take a certain amount of commitment to really get the idea.
The Orson Welles realisation is good, in particular his disdain for the HG Wells material. Where is fails is exemplified by the ending - the Doctor has the idea of using the Welles broadcast to scare off the real aliens, then gives the game away but it doesn't matter as an independent character destroys the alien ship in the end.
There are much better Eighth Doctor / Charley Pollard adventures such as Stones of Venice
