The Doctor for season 19 is solid but the acting of the supporting cast is not very strong. The weak female's are really a throwback to the 1960s. Even with the relatively weak acting both Earthshock and The Visitation are classic earth time-travel episodes and are worth watching.

Do notice the original run dates. Amazon currently has them out of order. The Visitation is story 119 (Feb 1982) and Earthshock is 121 (March 1982). So be sure to watch them in order.

I loved the beginning of the story. Peter Davison is a brilliant actor alongside his co-stars. The cliffhanger and mystery of who were controlling the deadly androids left me wanting more.

(As an aside: Amazon shows these episodes, for no good reason, in the wrong order. I recommend watching The Visitation first.)

Earthshock, in particular, is heartbreaking for its missed potential. I doubt anyone will be worried about spoilers this many years later, but just in case. SPOILER WARNING.

Adric is seriously not very well treated in these episodes, but his death is probably the least well done "death of a recurring character" I've ever seen. I could think of a half dozen ways they could have trivially improved it changing only the last ten minutes of the last episode. The Visitation isn't bad, but isn't as tight as a number of other episodes of Classic Who. On the whole, these episodes just support my theory that only mediocre Classic Who ends up as free streaming.

I feel this is one of Davison's best episodes.

Having been introduced to Tom Baker back on PBS in the early 80's, I couldn't feel enthusiastic about Davison's Doctor. But seeing these again for the first time in over 20 years I feel he did a wonderful turn as the Doctor. He was just different, that is all.

I do remember enjoying this one, though, though I actually liked Adric's character and didn't think it was great that he died.

I will have to watch more of his shows now.

If you are a fan of the classic episodes, these will just make your day. Of course, everyone has their favorite Doctor, and if you can remember back that far, this one will bring back fond memories. (My favorite has always been Tom Baker, but I enjoy them all for what they are.)

One of the better-written episodes from the 80's. Considered one of the classic episodes in part because of its controversial ending. Definitely worth watching for those Whovians out there.

what can I say? it's classic Who, good writing, fun story and lousy complaining companions. I don't know who choose to stick Peter Davison with such lousy companions (oh, yeah J.N.T) but I feel for the poor guy. Why stick people who don't want to be there in the first place into the TARDIS? other than that the story was pretty good, MUCH better than the drivel being written for the new series. watch it and enjoy, just please, overlook the wretched companions (excluding Nyssa of course! she was the very best of a bad lot.)
