Doctor Who: Horror of Fang Rock

The Good Doctor is back in this great adventure from the BBC. Starring my personal favourite Doctor, Tom Baker, Horror of Fang Rock is a riveting tale of terror, murder and suspicion. The mists that swirl around the Lighthouse town under threat hide something that Doctor Who believes he knows, but as he races to protect the townsfolk he finds that he might already be too late. 

Dealing with shape changing, aliens and doppelgangers, this is one of the great stories from the Tom Baker era of Who and really immersed viewers into a world of characters, where the actors really had to work at it as the mists surrounding both the lighthouse and town didnít allow for much to be revealed to the camera.  

The focus on characterisation is one of the strengths of this title, as you are more than likely aware, the special effects are a little hokey as they were in almost every Doctor Who and itís less than magnificent budget. A factor that I also enjoyed was that the lighthouse featured was one of the first electric ones, which for some weird reason added to the creepiness of it all for me. 

Extras include audio commentaries by Louise Jameson who played Leela and others. It also has a fascinating look into the merchandising behind the series which I found amazing, being a bit of a geek for all things collectable. 

This is a classic whodunit within the realms of the Doctor Who universe and a great storyline pushes the Doctor and his assistant Leela into a very Elizabethian Sherlock Holmes type scenario. Worth the purchase every time as I would say with all the Doctor Who releases to date. 

Go Get It!
