The Faceless Ones is great story, in the vein of bodysnatchers. I was worried about the story would be too crowded, what with three companions, but Ben and Polly are only really in the first half of the story. Patrick Troughton is excellent as always.
Six episodes spread out on two CDs. Highly recommended.
We find the Doctor and his three companions at London's Gatwick Airport in 1966. After fleeing from the police, Polly witnesses a bizarre murder. After reporting it to the Doctor, the investigation is on! What is happening at Gatwick, and what does it have to do with the strange Chameleon Tours company? This story is simply too long. The plot plods along, moving pretty slowly, and without much enthusiasm. This story might have been decent if the editors had trimmed the fat to make four episodes rather than six. Much of the padding from this tale is made up of running around the airport, trying to convince the authorities of unearthly circumstances, and deviating plot lines that really lead to nowhere special. Most of the supporting characters are "faceless" as well, not enticing much interest. Even the Doctor and his companions lack their usual sparkle and drive that is seen in other stories. I was disappointed, and I wish I had not bought "The Faceless Ones."
