Re: Last Classic Who Story you watched

Just finished watching Enlightenment, I do love that story (and not just because of Tegan in that dress) It's ideas far exceed its budget but I don't think that's a bad thing, and however ropey the effects the notion of sailing ships in space is an image that's stayed with me ever since.

Unfortunately it does lose its way a little. The first couple of episodes are wonderful though, and Striker and Mariner are decidedly creepy and very alien. Unfortunately we then see Captain Wrack arrive and things go downhill (if only a little) Even though she's hamming it up, Kinda Barron can at least act. Her first mate though....jesus! I know he was a pop star but that's no excuse. Definitely a candidate for worst Who actor ever methinks...
