One of the very best, a terrific classic
2 September 2014 | by (South Wales, UK) – See all my reviews

Review of all 6 parts:

This has been acclaimed as an all time classic for many years and deservedly so. It is terrific in every department.

The story involves the Great Intelligence, the villain introduced earlier in the series and which would return shortly before and during the shows 50th anniversary season. The threat posed by this villain and the actions of his minions the Yeti, provide cracking entertainment and thrills. The Great Intelligence causes the TARDIS to go to Earth during its attack on London with the Yeti marauding through the London underground. Plenty of action, mystery as to who is under the influence of the evil power and great dialogue support a tremendously high standard of story throughout the 6 episodes. The number of great characters is incredible with Lethbridge-Stewart's notable debut, the return of Travers and the addition of his daughter, the journalist Chorley, several different soldiers of interest as well as the Intelligence and the Yeti minions. Brilliant acting and production values with a fine script and effects make this pretty flawless.

This is a true all time classic, one of the best Who stories ever and therefore as good as TV gets!
