Decent Doctor Who story.

Doctor Who: The Visitation: Part 2 starts as the Doctor (Peter Davison) discovers that something strange is going on at the Squire's house with false walls of energy hiding something, he & his companions are then attacked by an android controlled by lizard like aliens known as Terileptil's & Adric (Matthew Waterhouse) & Tegan (Janet Fielding) are captured while the Doctor, Nyssa (Sarah Sutton) & Richard (Michael Robbins) manage to escape. The Doctor decides to go back to the TARDIS to rig up some sort of weapon to use against the android but on the way he comes across a Terileptil escape pod & a bunch of angry villagers controlled by the Terileptil's with the command to execute the Doctor...

Episode 14 from season 19 this Doctor Who adventure originally aired here in the UK during Februray 1982, directed by Peter Moffatt this is a decent enough story although nothing particularly original. The script by Eric Saward is moving along nicely & has a decent pace about it, to be honest it hasn't really moved on a great deal since Part 1 & there are some silly bits in it. Like how the Doctor can run around in that room for ages & that android doesn't bother firing his gun until he's run out the door! So far we know that these Terileptil alien lizards have landed in London during 1666 & not much else, I just would have liked to have seen a bit more plot exposition during this episode to keep me interested that's all. The Visitation sees the return of the Doctor's companion Nyssa who was absent from the previous story Kinda (1982) because she was only contracted to appear in 24 episodes during this season! This is a perfectly watchable sci-fi adventure even if not much has happened so far.

In this episode we get to see the alien lizard like Terileptil's & they feature the first use in Doctor Who of animatronic effects to create mouth & gill movements, to be honest it's not exactly impressive as while the mouth move the lips don't. As a whole they look alright but it's painfully obvious that it's just a guy in a cheap monster outfit as the heads look tatty where they join the body & the rubber suits don't convince that much either, I doubt they'll be giving anyone nightmares & what's with the stupid looking long capes?

The Visitation: Part 2 is an alright episode, it's nothing special & not that much has really moved on since Part 1 but it's still good fun & there are worse ways to pass 25 minutes.
