Customer Review

on 30 July 2010
In many aspects, i am a great fan of Hartnell and Troughton as Dr Who. AFter all, without them, would the series have become the instituation that it has.
A lot of people seem to recall them boht as they 'FAVE' doctor.
This story i would say is a total must for a doctor who fan, regardless of how much you rate the story.
It is a typical 1960's run of doctor who, and the newly formed team with Wendy Padbury replacing the 'Screaming' Deborah Watlin, although ZOE eventually became a bit of screamer herself, it is a shame for two strong characters like these two talented actresses to waste their vocal talents on the scream.
In this story, Zoe i think was quite strong.
Very indifferent towards those around her, and Wendy's wide eyed intelligence shines through marvellously.
Fraser Hines offering himself as a hero for once, without being the butt end of quick one liners from the doctor, which added to their great friendliness that they had toward each other.
Patrick Troughton was at his best, and i have previosuly read, however, that he became very impatient during this season of doctor who, which is a shame, because he was such a talented man.
The story itself i felt lacked not so much pace but 'pow'
the story was good in essence, and served perhaps on a political level a reason for being a pacifist or the need to defend ones borders, but nonetheless, the doctor saves the day with troughton's usual 'now then jamie...' approach.
i did like this story, but i feel that Troughton has had stronger ones, The War Games, Invasion and so on.
But as already said, if your a doctor who fan, and would forgive a lot, the story telling is great
