Re: Last Classic Who Story you watched

The talons of Weng-Chiang turned out to be an entertaining story. The Doctor and Leela did a good job, and most of the supporting cast was good (especially Littlefoot and Jago, who were pretty entertaining). It definitely had problems, mostly the racist stuff, which was distracting at times. There really was no excuse for hiring a white guy and putting him in yellow face to play the main minion Li H'sen Chang. But, once you get past the unfortunate racist stuff (You'd thnk by 1977 stuff like yellow face would have been frowned upon) the story itself is solid and entertaining. Next up is Horror of Fang Rock.
