"There you go Doctor, blow your way into the bank of England with that lot." The final part to a good story.

Doctor Who: Invasion of the Dinosaurs: Part 6 starts with the Doctor (Jon Pertwee) managing to escape the T-Rex & Brontosaurus & meeting up with his alie Brig. Lethbridge-Stewart (Nicholas Courtney) from UNIT, he convinces him to wage an all out attack on the underground bunker where Professor Whitaker (Peter Miles) is holed in preparation to wipe out all humanity on Earth so he & his misguided backers can start civilisation again afresh. Meanwhile Sarah Jane (Elisabeth Sladen) is doing her best to convince the unwitting participants involved in operation 'Golden Age' to rebel against the lies that they have been told, but will the combined efforts of the Doctor & Sarah Jane be enough?

This Doctor Who adventure was episode 10 from season 11 & aired here in the Uk during early 1974, directed by Paddy Russell I actually rather liked this six parter even though I prefer the shorter stories. The script by Malcolm Hulke rounds things off nicely, it retains it's reasonably effective moral message about pollution & even the Doctor comes out with a speech on the subject at the end as he reelects on the events that have just happened. There's enough treachery, monsters, action, light hearted humour, near misses & just plain childish fun to have kept me entertained throughout the six episodes although Part 1 seems like a long time ago now...

The special effects have generally been pretty poor throughout Invasion of the Dinosaurs & it's a shame that most people will probably remember & refer to it simply as 'the one with the awful dinosaurs' as the basic concept is good. The fight between the T-Rex & Brontosaurus is awful, it reminded me of when I was a kid & had plastic dinosaur toys which I would hold by the tips of their tails & just sort of push them into each other & make roaring noises to simulate a fight!

Invasion of the Dinosaurs overall is a fine story that one has to remember was made during the early 70's & as such isn't going to have Jurassic Park (1992) quality special effects, all I'll say is just enjoy it for what is. I'm going to give it 7 stars out of 10 over it's six episodes although I felt it maybe ran for one episode too many.
