Episode 48


Recommended Posts

In "Terror of the Zygons," shape-shifting aliens use the Loch Ness Monster in an attempt to take over the world, and Harry departs the TARDIS. Then in "Planet of Evil," a humanoid race mines a planet to save their species, but they find something very frightening and deadly. Also, Mike shocks Dan with a proclamation. [ 1:10:55 || 32.5 MB ]

another great episode. I love Terror of the Zygons. They're such a well realised alien, even with the stiffness of the costume, I thought they worked so well. The only part of their costume that i found slightly amusing is the fact you can see the microphone. It was mentioned about how Tom Bakers performance changed slightly once he'd been seen onscreen, and that you couldn't really see it in this story. This is partly because, as with many occasions in the Hartnell and Pertwee era, this was filmed as part of the previous series and held over (which also accounts for the fact it really feels like part of Series 12, concluding Harry's journey in the Tardis, and being the phase out of UNIT, although they return a couple more times, this is really the last time the Doctor is their Scientific Advisor).

Planet of Evil marks the real entry into the period over the next few years of reworking classic stories into Doctor Who (Forbidden Planet in this case, with a little bit of Jekyll and Hyde). Over the next 2 series we'll get stories with influences including Frankenstein, The Thing From Another World, Day of the Triffids, Hand of Orloc, Manchurian Candidate, Agatha Christie, Asimov, Sherlock Holmes, Fu Manchu...just to name a few off the top of my head
