|Every 12-year-old's sci-fi fantasy was Leela.|
|Doc talks some sense into an alien snot ball.|
The first one I watched was The Androids of Tara. Well, it was like they mashed up the Middle Ages with hack stage (over) actors all to find some crystal to aid in time travel. Or something. It did not play well. Even Baker could not save this from dullsville.
Much better, though some CGI might have helped some scenes, was Horror of Fang Rock. Give me some fog, a lighthouse and an alien and I'm suspending disbelief like a bitch. Leela (as if you didn't see the picture), the series siren, was not in her now famous leather garb, but was wearing period clothes. Louise Jameson is actually a good actress and not just eye candy. One lone bummer in the cast, the woman playing Adelaide, was way over-the-top, but she doesn't ruin the good fun.
The 12 year-old in me wants to own all the Tom Bakers, but prices are still high. An episode is broken down into three parts of a total 1:35:00 minutes of Who. Not bad.
Next: The Pyramids of Mars.
