Re: Last Classic Who Story you watched
I just watched The Web Planet for the first time.
Weird. Just weird.
Yeah. That's my verdict in a nutshell as well. I later read an interview with RTD and Verity Lambert where Russell claimed it was a favourite of his. But maybe he was joking.
I've yet to see any of the classic Masters except for Delgado. I'm not sure they'll be able to measure up. He was fantastic in the role and the interactions between him and the Doctor could make up even for weak stories. I did like Simms' take a lot, too. I think it was a good decision to play the character differently from the classic version.
