Customer Review

on April 13, 2012
I don't know what's happening with Amazon prices on this item. When I bought it it was £17.99, now it's back up to £22.49. Anyway, what you get for your money is two stories, one; 'The Android Invasion' is in my opinion, a classic. True, the plot maybe doesn't stand up to close scrutiny, but it's got some good monsters in the Kraals, and Tom Baker is on top form. The androids themselves are also pretty cool, and the effects haven't dated badly at all.

The second story in the pack is Invasion of the Dinosaurs. I'd like to say that the special effects have dated badly in this story, but to be honest, I think they were of a pretty shoddy standard when it was made. The irony is that the actual plot isn't bad in it's own right, and has some interesting ideas (colonising spaceship) and the dinosaurs are not really required. They are really just the 'eye-candy' to give some visual impact to the story. And what a visual impact they make! Only not in a good way. Actually, they are so badly realised that they transfirm the whole story to something of a comedy. This isn't necessarily bad, my wife reckons this is one of the best stories ever, as it's great waiting to see what bad effect is going to crop up next.

The extras also refer to the bad dinosaurs quite a bit, and give some background to what happened.

All in all, this makes this release an important addition to any collection, demonstrating both the best and the worst of Dr Who, but for quite different reasons. Much better than some of the other recent box sets.
