5.0 out of 5 stars underated why ???, 20 Jan. 2012
By 
This review is from: Doctor Who - The Black Guardian Trilogy: Mawdryn Undead / Terminus / Enlightenment [DVD] (DVD)
this is one of my faveroute boxsets and quite honestly one of the best most other boxsets ( with exception of the mara and kamelion tales ) feature a theme but diffrent doctors ie earth story or the beneath the surfface this boxset features a complete season minus frontios and a ark that sives all the way trough heres my thought on the included storys

mawdren undead ***

the most over rated story of the davidson era ( i loved caves and resurection ) the main reason this is so high with fans is because of the return of the late nic courtney if the story didnt include him this would have been low yea ok its dark and creepy mawdren himself is a example here in part 2,s cliffhangner but it takes too long to get going once part 3 happens all we,ve seen is back to earth then ship and it gose on like that

turloh got on my nerves in this story dont get me wrong mark strikson is fantastic :) as the companion from hell but he improves by the end ( his performance in frontios is superp) tegan and nyssa dont get to do much and the doctor is well the doctor regardless of regeneration all together a weak story but improvements a superp part 2 and 3 cliffhangner makes up for this

terminus ****

ok i love this story sue me and ill be the first to say it the story is pure rubbish that the (blank ) is in the (blank ) of ( blank blank ) ok iam a no spoiler man hince the blanks lol but seriously it is a rubbish plot but the idea of what terminus is thats what i love part 1 cliffhangner is excellent in ( and yes over way over the top ) setting it up lazers or leprosy is a serious skin condtion and to see it happen to someone ( spoilers ) is heartbreaking its also the sets this isnt disney land its dank creepy ( the screen where tegan and turlo is hidding in the celler with the victims walking above ) for me this is the highlight next to the last story really well done side from the lame plot :)

enlightenment *****

80s creepy with a saphire and steel plot and feel all cast at their best ( stricson the standout ) a superp plot a unintentional funny perfomance from lee jhon ( from imagenation ) and two supperb cliffhangers yup this is one of my personal faveroutes

as a boxset id highly recomend this it shows the 5th doctor as his most darkest ( in the i dont take crap from nobody ) a gorgeous story in the final and two good first storys

overall grade A
