Horrible, Dull, Unwatchable Atrocity
29 December 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Underworld is seriously one of the worst Doctor Who stories ever made, as well as one of the scripts ever written for television. Episode 1 is not that bad. It at least sets everything up well enough, despite being a bit tedious in areas. But the next three episodes are just GOD-AWFUL beyond belief. Firstly, the CSO is massively overused to compensate for a lack of budget, and so everything in this story just looks terrible. It's shocking. The plot, written by Bob Baker and Dave Martin, is also utterly terrible, managing to be dull, poorly written and hard to follow. I'm still not properly sure what exactly is supposed to be going on. The direction is also shockingly, disgracefully bad, with poor casting, the horrible CSO, the plot being difficult to follow, a botched cliffhanger to episode 3 and bad, lingering shots that make the story even more dull and hard to watch than it already is. An utterly disgraceful story from two terrible writers. One of the worst ever produced by the show.
