I'm a life-long fan of Doctor Who - and you probably won't find me giving out less than 5 stars to any Who story I review.

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.

Another good 'ripping yarn' from the Tom Baker and Liz Sladen era. Well worth the 7 quid. Good quality video and sound and the DVD was delivered quickly and safely. One or two wobbly bits for the special effects but good for the era and the Beeb budget.

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 :)

My Favorite Doctor Who of all time.!!!!! I remember watching this when it was released and I had never come across aliens so scary to me in the sci fi industry until the Zygons came along, these shape shifting creature that in their true for were the most hideous creatures I had ever seen with a total anialation of the human race had me cringing for the Doctor to free us from this terrible nightmare that was about to take over. Tom Baker outshined in this episode he was truly remarkable and still to this day I'm sure you Doctor Who fans will remember this episode for the years to come.

There is an extra disc packed with extras. The four part story comes with info text, audio commentary, 5.1 sound and isolated music score. There is also an extended version of episode 1 with a deleted scene. Also sees the end of the regular UNIT stories and Harry Sullivan though he reprise his role once more.

This DVD is a reminder of just how good Dr Who was in the mid 1970s, particularly with Tom Baker as Dr Who. He is superb. The story has a strong ploy that moves along at a pace. All the UNIT favourites are there as well. Elizabeth Sladen as usual gives a brilliant performance. Good monsters too! The lead Zygon is particularly malevolent. Terror of the Zygons is a good addition to any Dr Who collection.

This extremely entertaining story is set in the highlands of Scotland, with sinister goings-on at Loch Ness. The Zygons, a race of aquatic aliens, have been living in the Loch and plotting mischief, using the Loch Ness monster to destroy oil rigs. Naturally, only the Doctor can stop them.

This story features the welcome return of Brigadier Lethbridge Stewart, after a long abscence, and lots of men in kilts. The Zygons are classic Dr Who monsters, and there is a splendidly unconvincing Loch Ness monster. What more could anyone want?

Definetly in the top ten Doctor Who Stories of all time.
Tom Baker and all the supporting cast on top form, a superb and unusual script, stunning monster design from future Oscar Winner John Friedlander and creepy and unnerving music from Dudley Simpson.

One of the best, a must buy.

Very Highly Recommended.

The start of Tom Baker's second season as the Fourth Doctor and all the UNIT crew are here: Sarah-Jane, Harry Sullivan, The Brigadier and recently promoted Warrant Officer Mr Benton. Something's destroying oil rigs and a certain Scottish monster is suspected. Doctor Who stalwart John Woodnutt (Spearhead from Space, Frontier in Space, and Keeper of Traken) guest stars.
