most original POV of nearly any Who episode
9 December 2006 | by (CAli, USA) – See all my reviews

I lived in england at the cool age of 13 and watched jonathon pertwee cavort with characters who looked like they were glitterock backup singers with mild disbelief...

...But as a young adult in the early 80s I fell in love with the weird insouciance of the Tom Baker era, followed by a mild rooting interest in Peter Davison, further declining until Ecclestone and Tennant revived the franchise for the new millennium...

Back in the 80s the local PBS station KTEH helped fill me in on the doings of the good doctors that preceded Baker and I grew to appreciate Pertwee, and his nemesis The Master... good times...There were also some very well constructed plots/story arcs (the planet pirates, for example) which would take many episodes to resolve But enough of my fanboy credentials

This is an art film episode of Dr Who as told from the the view of the red shirted star trek crewman who will probably perish on the plant's surface.

It is a unique take on the normally unseen collateral damage these great events and adventures have upon the incidental characters. This teleplay looks at the effect on those who are merely aware and interested in the Doctor. It's probably the very first PoMo dr treatment apart from Comic Relief, etc.

This is Rosencrantz and Guildenstern with a handycam and it has that same unsettling realism that the more recent Dr Who episodes have had, and such as were found in some of the 'Historical' Pertwee and Baker episodes that were set in Medieval and Cavalier times in which some technologically advanced being attempted to subvert the flow of history for their advantage.

If this is from the guy with his hands on the franchise then I cheer for the revival of one of the most thoughtful TV scifi series of all time.
