5.0 out of 5 stars Almost Flawless, 1 Oct. 2013

This review is from: Doctor Who - Terror of the Zygons [DVD] (DVD)
Without a doubt, one of the best adventures of the Tom Baker era. The first episode alone is one of the most polished pieces of classic Who ever produced. The whole adventure is well-scripted and acted and has a memorable music score by Geoffrey Burgon. The Duke of Forgyll/Broton (John Woodnutt) turns in a very classy performance, as do Baker, Marter and Sladen. Only the Skarasen lets the side down and we were used to that anyway. The old series nearly always came a cropper when it had to produce over-sized monsters on a tiny budget. I think we can safely call this one of the best and most beautifully-produced Doctor Who stories of the old era...the bug-eyed glove puppet notwithstanding.

Such was the impact of 'Terror of the Zygons'...coming so soon after 'The Ark in Space' and 'Genesis of the Daleks' that an article on Doctor Who was published in the old 'Listener' magazine. It paid tribute to Tom Baker (still a 'new' doctor then), and to the Hinchcliffe production team and speculated that, on the strength of recent stories, the programme might possibly run for all time. Nearly forty years later....
