Web Planet isn't that bad.

I like the Web Planet - it has Barbara planning war strategy for a bunch of giant butterflies, what more would you want!

There are a lot worse Who stories out there.

I don't *hate* it but I recognise that it should never have been commissioned as it's too ambitious for the technology of the time

I enjoy the Web Planet, and it's probably even better with Hallucinagenics

Heh, this thread is Transcendentally Dimensional. The Title is bigger on the inside

Yeah, my machine autocompleted it from another post elsewhere, and when I noticed and changed it, it didn't stay changed on the menu...

I've actually watched some of it on hallucinogens.

Like most movies/shows while tripping, it's just awkward cause you're super aware that what you're watching is this strange production of people pretending to be people they're not inside a rectangle. It's uncomfortable because while reality is bending and shifting and morphing around you, what's on the TV screen unfolds in a straight, linear fashion the same way it's always gone and always will go, and it sticks out like a sore thumb, like the Prophets from DS9 trying to observe the regular world.

Getting stoned and watching The Web Planet, on the other hand, rocks.

Re: But will it be a timehead?

Part 1 of "The Web Planet" is always the episode that I show to people to give them an idea of Hartnell-era Doctor Who at its most pointless. The Doctor burns Ian's tie while Barbara & Vicki debate the medical merits of asprin. Riveting stuff!
