Doctor Who the Deadly Assassin
My favourite Doctor who Tom Baker and also the wonderful
voice of Little Britain comes Roadshow’s latest classic Doctor Who
entitled Doctor Who the Deadly Assassin.
Directed by David
Maloney, Doctor Who the Deadly Assassin stars Tom Baker, Peter Pratt,
Erik Chitty, Derek Seaton, Hugh Walters, Angus MacKay, Llewellyn Rees,
Bernard Horsfall and George Pravda in a fun and at times exciting and
comedic Doctor Who adventure.

Of course, there are other powers at play here and the Doctor
must someone uncover this evidence before he becomes incapacitated. To
spoil things, the mastermind behind this is The Master who has attempted time

Deadly Assassin is that the original broadcast was cut because of a
direct complain to the BBC by a powerful right winger.
original ending has been fully restored to this presentation and viewers
can watch one of the featurettes which explains this issue into full
detail. In regards to special features, the DVD contains some great
commentary by Tom Baker, Bernard Horsfall and producer Philip
Hinchcliffe who give us a great insight into the creation of the Doctor
At the end
of the day, another sturdy and classic Doctor Who tale for fans!
