Doctor Who: Inferno, 1970 – ★★★½ (contains spoilers)

This review may contain spoilers.

I’m really enjoying watching the Third Doctor’s stories, after seeing all episodes in order so far, as the script, direction, and action is miles better than anything that came before it. 

But some of these serials are just a few episodes too long, including this one. So much is repeated to drag the story on!

And the werewolf things are never explained!

Doctor Who: The Ambassadors of Death, 1970 – ★★★

The build up in the first few episodes is great and I was expecting something brilliant but it all just started to slow down and the end was a bit of an anticlimax!

Doctor Who: The War Games, 1969 – ★★★★½

Ok so *this* was the Classic Who content I’ve been waiting for. 

It had everything: Time Lords! The Master (I think??), companion exits, regeneration (ish?), mystery, intrigue, action, adventure!

If it was maybe a couple episodes shorter it would have had a near perfect score. 

So glad I decided to watch all of Classic Who in order, it’s been tough but so worth it for this!

Doctor Who: The Seeds of Death, 1969 – ★★★ (contains spoilers)

This review may contain spoilers.

Another “base under siege” episode, and the second appearance of the Ice Warriors. It has some good moments, but the premise is a bit too far fetched and the seeds are not very menacing at all!

Doctor Who: The Invasion, 1968 – ★★★★ (contains spoilers)

This review may contain spoilers.

Probably the best Classic Who I’ve seen yet. 

Cybermen! (Although I guessed that), The Brigadier! UNIT! Feminism! (ish) Missiles!

Shame about the ending or this would have been really something.

Doctor Who: The Mind Robber, 1968 – ★★★½ (contains spoilers)

This review may contain spoilers.

Very weird and experimental, I imagine this is what a drug trip is like. And as I read somewhere, you can tell Moffat saw this when he was young because the Matt Smith era copies loads of stuff from it.

It is surprisingly good, I like this one. But for a moment I thought it really was *the* Master.

The Quarks are cute. Everything else about this is shockingly bad though!

Candyman, 1992 – ★★★½

Last time I saw this I was in primary school, I remember we used to say “Candyman” in the mirror at school!

It’s a good horror film, lots of gore and a few jump scares, and I like the mystery, but I feel like the ending is just a bit unexplained.

I’m going to watch the sequels to see if they shed any light...

Doctor Who: The Wheel in Space, 1968 – ★★½ (contains spoilers)

This review may contain spoilers.

The plot is incredibly slow, the Cybermen’s motive is not clear at all, and it’s all just dreadfully boring I’m afraid.

A Nightmare on Elm Street, 1984 – ★★★½

Doctor Who: The Web of Fear, 1968 – ★★★½ (contains spoilers)

This review may contain spoilers.

It all started so well - the location is familiar and very well done (London Underground recreated in a BBC studio), and this is the introduction of The Brigadier! 

But the monster (The Great Intelligence who has a thing for webs and Yetis for some reason) was silly and the ending a bit rubbish. The Doctor gets upset because Jamie showed some initiative and saved the day instead of him.
