Trivia

The original script was by Lewis Greifer, who submitted a first draft which producer Philip Hinchcliffe and script editor Robert Holmes deemed couldn't be made to work within the format of the show. When Greifer proved unavailable to rewrite it himself, Holmes rewrote the script from page one. Greifer was paid in full for his first draft and retained copyright for the story, which is why the pseudonym of Stephen Harris was invented as author. 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.
