5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic and complete! March 7, 2014
By C. D.
Before anyone asks, I did indeed get this early, as I imported one of the limited (but identical) discs that were allowed for sale in Canada a bit early.

First of all, if you haven't seen this story, it is brilliant. It showcases Pat Troughton's acting chops, as both the hero and the villain. It is action packed, with some great location work and an interesting twist around 2/3 of the way through. It has a 007 or Avengers kind of feel to it, and six episodes fly by rapidly. I was always a fan of the previously sole surviving episode, and the audio of this story. But seeing it from start to finish, it is certainly one of my favorite Troughton serials. If 'Tomb' was slightly disappointing compared to its legacy, in 1991, this story has received the exact opposite effect after it was miraculously found.

The restoration work on the film is superb, especially if you have seen some of the film frames published in DWM, as they were in a state of disrepair. The resolution is a bit higher than the digital release from last year (most noticeable on close ups, texture of clothes and hair). Unlike the digital release, and the botched Region 1 Moonbase disc, this DVD is fully VidFIRED, so the scenes that were originally recorded on video play back looking like video, and not old film.

Very happy to have this one in the collection. Thank you Philip Morris, and the Restoration Team. And thanks to BBC Worldwide for *eventually* giving us this DVD in the US.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic serial March 11, 2014
Just finished watching this serial the other day via iTunes. I wasn't expecting much because I haven't heard of this serial, or too much about it before it was found last year in Nigeria, but I was blown away by all the excitement and drama. Patrick Troughton is great as both the Second Doctor and the would be dictator Salamander. This episode has a very different vibe than most other Doctor Who serials, and I wish they dipped into this territory more often. It feels more like a spy thriller than science fiction, and honestly I feel that most of this serial could be remade into some sort of big budget Hollywood movie. I don't know why the BBC is releasing this one on DVD after Web of Fear, because Web of Fear starts exactly where this serial ends. All Doctor Who fans should see this exciting classic episode right away!.

Yes, early effects and such, but Troughton was brilliant. I love his Doctor and consider it a crime that nearly all his episodes were destroyed by the BBC.

Mystery, spies, suspense, The Doctor kind of/sort of in stereo? I loved it.

But... this and Web of Fear were thought to be lost forever until last year. Doctor Who find of the century!

C'mon, no extras? None at all? Are you kidding me?

5.0 out of 5 stars Just Awesome!!! Thank You Phillip Morris!!! May 24, 2014
Verified Purchase
One Disc containing Six episodes and that's about all. There is a coming soon but its already released episodes.

The digital re-mastering is quite good.

I noticed another review that lamented the no special features. This is a recovered episode and they got it out just as quick as they could. I found this to totally be worth the 20 bucks I paid for it. And when they do put out a Special Edition I will buy that.

Again thank you Phillip Morris for finding this. Good luck finding more.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Great Rediscovered Who May 28, 2014
Verified Purchase
I've been slowly falling in love with these classic black and white Dr. Who adventures. However, unlike Cybermen and Dalek episodes which are predictable in the sense that the title tells you what you can expect, I didn’t know what to expect out of this story, which was only recently rediscovered. It was amazing: stylish late 60's designs, more simplistic special effects, and an eerie black and white story that often seemed more like classic Twilight Zone than Dr. Who. It really is more about the mystery and suspense than the explosions and shock value. No fancy monsters, just a great story. I highly recommend; it’s probably one of my top ten favorite stories from Dr. Who.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a story! May 27, 2014
Verified Purchase
This story, missing for so many years, now intact, is a must-own for fans of classic Doctor Who. Sadly, there are no special features on this release, but the story is great and the production values are very good for the time it was produced.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exciting, highly political adventure episode September 30, 2014
"Doctor Who, Episode 40: Enemy Of The World"
(BBC, 1968/2014)
. . . . .

This was an exciting, politically-oriented adventure episode of Patrick Troughton's run as The Doctor, a legendary "lost episode" famously rediscovered in dubbed copies cached away in a West African BBC relay station. All things considered, the restoration looks quite nice, and the goofy, low-budget charm of the original show comes through in all its glory, lo, these decades later.

Even given the stilted dramatic qualities of the old show, this is a gripping adventure, with the Doctor and his companions marooned in a futuristic fascist state led by a dictator named Salamander, who is the identical duplicate of the good Doctor. (And is also played by Troughton, with great gusto and a slightly questionable Latin American accent.) In general the conception and execution of the story are quite good, with several menacing baddies (including Salmander's particularly slimy, sadistic henchman, Benik, played by Milton Johns) as well as several mod lasses in groovy sci-fi outfits that will delight fans of '60s fashion.

A memorable episode, evocative of its time, but also as timeless as a good Doctor Who story should be! (DJ Joe Sixpack, Slipcue film reviews)

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful recovery. Curiously, no special features...
This must be what it is like to get UK DVDs: no special features whatsoever. Nothing. Well, I guess after a hundred or so, it gets hard to find anything new to say. Read more
