Customer Review

on 19 March 2012
Although a box set, as others have said, it is best to think of it as 2 different, but excellent stories (Terror of The Zygons would have made a much more satisfying second story if these were truly UNIT files).

Never mind though - for me Invasion of the Dinosaurs was a revelation, and is EVERYTHING that is best about Who - The Archetypal Doctor, heroic, cerebral, but very much a man of action. UNIT representing a 'higher good' that was above petty nationalism, a solid science-fiction plot, false flag terror and a shadow government whose plan is slowly uncovered by a fearless Sarah Jane. Was not expecting this to be so good after some negative reviews, but it blew my mind and is now quite possibly my favourite Dr Who story.

The Android Invasion is a different affair, but has some very effective moments that are genuinely unnerving in The Prisoner/Avengers mold. For a variety of reasons. I'd set aside any UNIT connection, but some great performances set against 'a quaint English Village' (Daemons, anyone?) tick the box for me.

Highly recommend!
