  • Last of the Patrick Throughton series. Establishes more of The Doctor's background for future episodes.

    1st of all, this was the 1st episode series that I saw of Doctor Who, so it is very special to me because of that.



    A very intrueging episode series that relates just how much we humans love to make war, and well done. The acting in this series, in my opinon, was better than most of Patrick Throughton's as The Doctor. This episode series landmarks serveral key elements to the Doctor Who character background. It is the first time we actually go to The Doctor's homeworld, though they yet to name it, and it is the first time the term "Time Lord" has been used in any of the episodes to date. Two previous episode series included another of The Doctor's race with a "newer" version of the TARDIS, but there was no mention of these background elements.



    This episode series also defines "The Master" as a definate criminal renegade within the Doctor Who universe, and sets up the reasons why he and The Doctor are enemies.



    A "not to miss" for those who enjoy knowing where in the episode series landmark information is given.
