3.0 out of 5 stars Of Dream Lords and Silurians!, 6 Sept. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well, if you've already seen the original broadcasts then you will already be wise to the three episodes (7, 8 and 9 ). This is half-way through the series. Personally I like the darkness of Amy's Choice and its denouement and the foretelling the demise of one of the main characters. Toby Jones gives a wonderful performance as the menacing Dream Lord? But Who is he?

The Silurian story ( The Hungry Earth, Cold Blood) might give the Silurians more depth and complexity than previous incarnations, maybe humanising them a bit too much in my view, but even Silurians involve, I suppose! Myra Syral is very good as the geophysicist and her ending unexpected!

If you buy all the new series DVDs as released as I do then you will already have bought or about to buy it. Amy's Choice is definitely better than the Silurian episodes. I'm sure some Dr. Who fans appreciate some stories more than others.

Make up your own mind!

5.0 out of 5 stars 60s Caine Classic, 16 Jun. 2010
I've always loved the Ipcress File based on the Len Deighton novel of the same name.How much resemblance it bears to the novel I don't know.

This is in my view the first and the finest of the Harry Palmer trilogy ( Funeral in Berlin, Billion Dollar Brain).

You know there's a mole but who is it? What is Ipcress? What's causing the "brain-drain"?

Very much of the Cold War and from the same production stable as James Bond. The acting is excellent and the music is good.
