There are many among us who us who love the old Star Trek series, not because of the high-tech effects but, for the lack of. We were from a generation that had to use our imaginations. That filled in the blanks better than any computer animation. I love high-tech and the great visuals but there is something about a few flashing lights and the insinuation that something is about to happen that goes beyond seeing a man's head roll in the dust...and the violence levels were so much lower then. I'm nit one of those fanatics that will say that Rap music and video games are what went wrong with our society. I will say that when we lost our ability to useur imaginations, we lost much more than we realized. Point a twig and say "Bang." May not be as effective as Paint Ball or as realistic as digital reproductions of actual weapons but we had fun and if anyone got hurt, they survived it...in most cases. That is what I like about the old Doctor Who episodes...we all knew what was coming next and we allowed our brains to fill in the blanks. Were they any less violent?...no, but they were by far less graphic. Today's film makers could take a lesson from the old masters. a little suspense can go a long way...and the Doctor, over his many incarnations and many styles knew the value of a little suspence. A seductively clothed woman can be far more erotic than one who is fully nude. Never underestimate the power of the human mind. Take away the element of imagination and we become a nation of mindlesslumps of flesh just waiting for the next great visual stimulation.

The old shows had some cheese, but they really hold up rather well given that they are 50 years old now. It is a real shame that Amazon Instant videos only has a very limited selection of the first season and very spotty selections of seasons until you get up to the end of the third Doctor onwards. While there are some episodes that are lost for all time; The original tapes were erased and reused, current copies of most of the early shows were made from copies sent to local channels and from private collections, there are many more available than are on Amazon.

No doubt you've figured out by now that this "season" contains only one episode in four parts. I'm not too inclined to complain about that; in fact I found it a relief, because if Amazon offered complete sets for the classic series I'd never get out from under.

This is the only episode Amazon has to feature William Hartnell as the Doctor, unless you want to count the tenth anniversary special. It's also the only First Doctor episode I've seen, and clearly he was being written and played in a way that's completely unlike the Doctors with whom I'm familiar, so I don't have much of a standard of comparison here. Hence the four stars: I was leaning toward three but decided I should be generous given the difficulty of rating it. The look and feel of it is very, very dated, so in judging it against modern Dr Who episodes is unfair, after all.

The gist of it is, TARDIS lands in an Aztec temple about ninety years before the conquistadores put the Aztecs out of business. (Which we learn by the companions digging around trying to place artifacts. This means the Doctor doesn't know where they are, and they're acting like it's perfectly routine that it's their job as the passengers to figure out on their own where and when the driver has stopped. Okay. . . . ) Aztecs fall upon our heroes as they snoop around and decide that one of the companions is a god, and the other two and the Doctor are her servants. Everyone plays along so that they'll be able to get back into the TARDIS and leave. (What, they had no intention of staying for an adventure?

Discovering the first Doctor Who has proven to be a delightfully nostalgic experience. This set me on a path to watch as many Doctor Who's I can find from beginning to the end. This is a very good episode.

what an amazing piece of work for its time. by todays standards, its a little campy and reserved, but put into perspective, i cant help but be in awe of the whole production. i like that the doctor has a grand-daughter. it gives him a "human" side. it is really fun when you see or hear references to things from these early episodes in the current incarnation of dr who. loved it.

I'm all caught up on the "new" Dr. Who episodes, and since watching the 50th anniversary show I thought it would be fun to go back and watch some of the classic episodes. There are elements of Season 7, aside from the 50th anniversary show, that were very referential so I wanted to understand where and how the new shows is paying homage to the old. The old shows are much shorter (half hour in duration), and the production value... well, just appreciate it for what it is. :) These old shows are a must watch for any true fan!
