Graham Williams....?
6 July 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Its funny, when you watch a special feature I think this reviewer likes to be educated, entertained and informed. Her we have a rather botched DVD Documentary and I have to say it slightly lowers the standard of this otherwise excellent range. It is the longest and most drawn out of documentaries and in places I actually started falling asleep. What is lacked in entertainment value it made up for in the educational department but I think there has to be a healthy mixture of both and her it was all fact fact fact and no entertainment. Now I happen to think that Williams era was actually not that bad and seeing here all the troubles he had this man was not to be envied. Here Ed Stradling shows his inability to make documentaries that viewers can watch, enjoy and stay with I actually found myself fast forwarding through bits I suspect this Producer doesn't know how to edit properly a skill he'll need to develop. The writing was pretty fluid and it started with a very "As Time Goes By" title sequence which was pretty weak even though the production values where high. But all this said it was not the worst thing about the extra's on this Key to Time Box Set, however it is just as well we are not buying this set for its extra's which I note Stradling had a lot to do with showing his inexperience as a producer.
