4.0 out of 5 stars Spiky, 28 April 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dr Who - Meglos [VHS] (VHS Tape)
Meglos has gone down in Doctor Who history as one of the worst stories and fans' least favourite Tom Baker story. This is probably because it is late-70s Doctor Who by numbers, and despite having some impressive (for its time) effects, and an original villain, it generally feels a bit tired.
The double-act perpetuated by thugs Grugger and Brotadac is silly, and many of the ideas are all too similar to recent serial 'The Creature from the Pit'. The best bits involve Meglos' imitation of The Doctor's form, and the makeup is pretty impressive.
I have to concede that it's not one of the best ever Doctor Who (or even Tom Baker period) stories, but it has a certain charm and is worth seeing for the spiky Doctor alone; for a more satisfying experience it's worth checking out the Target novelisation written by Terrance Dicks.
