Good DVD release,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Doctor Who - The Ark In Space  [DVD]  (DVD)
It is strange to me that this story was released so early, especially when so many other options were available. Nonethe less, this is a sory that has many nice features. It is clear to see the humour emerging in Tom Baker's era and it is very refreshing. The special effects of the story leave something to be desired but you can't help but admire the effort that went into the creation of the wirrn. This is a solid story. The special features are only average but the real highlight is the Tom Baker Interview. This is very entertaining. The Murray Leach feature is interesting too. The model sequences are a bit dull. Overall though there is a reasonable effort to make this an interesting release. The commentary is a highlight. It is so nice to hear Tom Baker, especially since so many of his releases do not have this luxury. He doesn't speak enough, but who cares when he is so entertaining.
This is worth buying, but don't expect the ultimate classic. Merely a good, simple, and effective story.
