The Reign of Terror: Episode 3 - Excellent French Revolution Adventure
5 July 2014 | by (South Wales, UK) – See all my reviews

Review for all 6 episodes:

This adventure beginning with A Land of Fear and continuing for 6 episodes takes place in the French Revolution. It is overall an excellent and thoroughly entertaining story.

This finishes the first season in the same superbly high standard that it began. The writing of the whole first series is brilliant and the scripts and story here maintain that brilliance. The Doctor, Ian and Barbara also maintain their fantastic characterisation and acting quality. Hartnell as the Doctor in particular is tremendous, especially in his meeting with Robespierre in Episode 4. The final 3 episodes are probably the best and thankfully there are animated reconstructions available with the original audio to preserve episodes 4 and 5. Episode 2 is probably the weakest, though not a bad episode it is not as good as the rest of the story. Susan's character is particularly annoying at times in this story and is a sad shadow of the promise of An Unearthly Child.

Overall very high standards though not as good as Marco Polo or The Aztecs.
