Great Dr Who story and the first with Patrick Troughton. Based on the original script this is a classic Who. Ben, Polly and The Doctor stuck in the middle of a power struggle on a colonised planet with the Daleks chucked in for good measure. What cou ...more

Gripping JR story with lots of twists and turns involving the USA political establishment and ghost like perps that JR / Neagley (colleague from previous life) and the VPs minders & FBI struggle to cope with. Ending let it down a bit for me, but ...more
