Re: Last Classic Who Story you watched

Planet Of Fire another fine story from the 21st season, IMO it was the last good Ainley Master story and it has some great location shoot on Lanzarote. Peter Grimwade wrote and excellent story and Cummng's direction complimented the storyline and we got some closure for Turlough. We saw teh departure of two companions and arrival of a new one the form of Peri, who gave us the first ever bikini shot in Doctor Who history. Peter Wyngarde was an excellent guest star, he had a sort Peter O'Toole look in the story and I had no idea he was Klytus in Flash Gordon, like many great Dcotor Who guest stars he also has a great theater voice. The final scene with Peri was echoed in Smith And Jones, with similar dialogue and a nice lurch from the TARDIS.

"The Web of Fear" - the "lost" story I hoped most would be found because of my childhood memories. And it didn't disappoint, although scrumptious Victoria was more of a twit than usual.

Last year I rewatched Planet of Fire and just last week I watched the re-edited 66 minute version on the DVD and really enjoyed that. I thought the story flowed much more nicely. I didn't care for the new SFx. Unlike Enlightenment, in which I thought the new SFx really added, in Fire they seemed to slightly detract. But, the pacing of the story was much better. Agree that it is a good story, probably underated by fans.

Sladen was in a two piece in Death to the Daleks, but that wasn't nearly as revealing.

Great story! Agreed, Victoria's legs in this one were very distracting!

I just found and purchased "The War Games" from an on-line dealer for $15... on VHS. My roommate still has a VCR that he will let me borrow.

I'm looking forward to this as I love Troughton's Doctor, and want to see his final story. It's not available on streaming sites, and the price of the DVD from on-line sellers is over the top expensive so I wasn't sure if/when I'd ever get to see this.
