005 The Keys of Marinus

A quest-based serial that takes some of the themes from The Daleks and spins them out in a new direction, The Keys of Marinus has a mixed reputation. It is either a six-episode borefest or a thrilling new direction for Doctor Who, again demonstrating the flexibility of the concept; depending on who you ask, of…

Death To The Daleks

Stilted, over-long and flat, Death To The Daleks is one of the weaker adventures for Doctor Who’s number one bad guys. It looks cheap, the Daleks even cheaper and Pertwee looks as bored as I was watching it. Yes, I know this is harsh, but time has not been kind to this story. Even forgiving…

Someone’s…

The Android Invasion Extras

Welcome to 2012, Kasterborites! We’ve got a nice couple of clips here from the forthcoming UNIT Tales boxset, specifically concerning The Android Invasion, a Terry Nation-penned adventure from 1975 starring Tom Baker and Lis Sladen as the Doctor and Sarah Jane. The story is notable for being the last “full” UNIT tale, featuring John Levene…
