Now, the Masque of Mandragora, that was sensational!! I was stunned, rich costumes, great locational shots, intrigue, and mystery, it was truly a well planned serial! I am surprised I have never seen those two episodes before. Well worth the watch!

And a well chosen writer: writing the occasional Doctor Who was effectively Louis Marks' third job; job number two was producing the BBC's Play of the Month series, which did productions of Ibsen, Arthur Miller, Strindberg, lightweight stuff like that. Job number one was as a professor of Renaissance History, whose PhD was the definitive text on the economics of the era where Mandragora is set...

I just watched this one and I completely agree with everything that was said.

Re: Last Classic Who Story you watched

I've just finished watching Doctor Who and the Silurians. First time I’ve seen it in over a decade I think. It really is rather good, and the fact it's 7 episodes never makes it feel too drawn out. It really does throw everything but he kitchen sink at you; alien invasion, mistrustful humans, nuclear annihilation, biological warfare, UNIT, good aliens, bad aliens, Whitehall bureaucrats, action, adventure, Liz Shaw in go go boots…all this plus Avon!!

Pertwee is extremely confident in the role given its only his second adventure (am I right in thinking they were filmed in order back then as well?)

^^
And the sequel is this big, dumb, fantastic action movie, which is, in my opinion, equally excellent.

Oh that'll be next on my list. I inherited the Silurian box set a month or two back. I am right in assuming The Sea Devils features The Master/clangers moment?

You are right.

Now if we're talking about the Silurian box set, maybe don't expect too much from "Warriors of the Deep".

Re: Last Classic Who Story you watched

Warriors is probably the one I'm most familiar with, not so long ago that I saw it. It has its moments but the director should have done a better job, just turn the lights down! (and the least said about Ingrid Pitt trying to drop kick the Myrka the better...)

Re: Last Classic Who Story you watched

Recently I watched several selected serials of Troughton and McCoy era.

Certainly very different Doctors.
While I liked Troughton almost right away I am still warming up to McCoy a bit.
Right now I am watching Silver Nemesis in which he kinda won me over a bit more when he suddenly wore a fez and mob for a second!
