Trivia

When Sarah first enters at the beginning of the first part wearing the long old-fashioned gown, the Doctor calls her Vickie. He's referring to Victoria Waterfield who traveled with the Second Doctor (Patrick Troughton) and came from Victorian England. (However, the Second Doctor never called her Vickie.) See more »

One of the best
7 September 2011 | by (Oz) – See all my reviews

I'd rank this in my top 5 favourite Who stories of all time. It's a pity there weren't more Egypt-themed stories, because the mystery of Ancient Egypt is just cherry-ripe for such as the Doctor to explore. Good, tightly scripted story, not too many cheesy special effects, even the mummy-bots looked suitably menacing, and great acting, especially from Gabriel Woolf, whose voice was just superb, totally mesmerizing and just dripping with evil. Honey soaked in poison is the best way to describe his well-modulated and sibilant tones. In the history of Who, I think only Valentine Dyall as the Black Guardian manages a more sinister voice. I've seen this one at least a dozen times and it never loses its appeal. Very highly recommended.
