"The Deadly Assassin" was considered by some fans to be an atrocity because it ran contrary to what "The War Games" revealed
Explain.
Some saw that "The War Games" and the Pertwee era had made the Time Lords out to be god-like beings, while "The Deadly Assassin" depicted them as power-hungry politicians. The Doctor Who Appreciation Society tore it apart at the time because it got everything they thought they knew wrong. This essay may explain it better than I can.
