Could have been tighter
19 June 2014 | by (Lincolnshire, UK) – See all my reviews

A well made and low key B-movie in which a hospital is trapped in a forcefield while two aliens search for their escaped prisoner. It's probably most notable for the plot provided by Robert Holmes, who later cannibalised it for the far superior 'Doctor Who' story 'Spearhead from Space', which introduced Jon Pertwee's third Doctor.

Anyway, back to 'Invasion'. While it's solid and has some effective moments (like the doctor driving his car straight into the invisible forcefield and smashing through the windscreen) the movie is also humourless and slow moving, which is a shame as with a few nips and tucks it would have been much improved. Valerie Gearon's pretty sexy, though, so it's not all bad.
