Laurence Scarman: [astounded at the Doctor recognizing his radio telescope invention] How could you possibly know that?
The Doctor: Well, you see, Mr. Scarman, I have the advantage of being slightly ahead of you. Sometimes behind you, but normally ahead of you.
Laurence Scarman: I see.
The Doctor: I'm sure you don't, but it's very nice of you to try."

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.
