IT'S VERY SHOUTY!
on 15 September 2017
I won't review the story, watch the DVD for that but I'll comment on the experience. First off, considering how old it is, the production is really quite good. It does a great job of depicting an isolated Arctic type base and it isn't half as clunky as I was expecting. The animated episodes are OK. Not the best animation in the world but they do succeed in replicating the 'feel' of the live action episodes. However, the acting leaves a lot to be desired! It is quite possibly the most 'shouty' TV drama I have ever seen. Every character seems to shout their lines which, after a while, becomes irritating.
it's also too long. I know it was the fashion back in the day to have multi episodes but it does make you appreciate the shorter 1-2 episode per story format we get these days a lot more. So, in conclusion, it's an OK watch and an interesting window into the past of Dr Who.
