Very... Odd, But Great...,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Doctor Who - The Keys Of Marinus [DVD]  (DVD)
First I'll say that this has great features and is well priced, so if you are a Doctor Who fan and know about the serial, get it, because from here on I'll discuss the serial.
This story is very odd, but great. At times you're just left thinking "What?" and the monsters are rather silly. I also found the court thing in the last episodes odd. But even though it is odd, it is somehow modern for it's time. They're going from place to place searching for keys. This isn't the usual Classic where things drag on throughout episodes, this is a bunch of entirely different stories bunched together, making it sort of fun for modern audiences to enjoy over most other Hartnell episodes.
If you haven't watched much of the revived series yet and have just started on Doctor Who, I suggest you watch more of them first, but after that and a few later Classic episodes, make sure that you watch this as one of your first Hartnell's to get a good taste. I think even a child can enjoy this in the right mind.
I give it a four for because it is brilliant and I have not given it five due to its oddness...
