Doctor Who Green Death Special Edition

Although this has been available before, the special edition is far superior as it comes with a whole wealth of special features that really crams in as much Doctor Who content as possible. The story is also pretty darn special and stars Jon Pertwee as Doctor Who with content that is definitely before its time. The story actually involves an environmental theme as the Doctor tackles pollution that results in the creation of giant green maggots. Very cool!

The special effects are also to die for and the villain is quite interesting, although it's a tad reminiscent of the super computer from The Goodies. As the Doctor goes head to head with the villain B.O.S.S., he fortunately has help with his companion Jo Grant (Katy Manning) as they attempt to rescue some Welsh Miners in this radical different Doctor Who story. With over the top acting, special effects that sometimes make you cringe, the story behind the Green Death is actually quite powerful and given the age of this story, it makes it far superior.

Video, Audio & Special Features

Both the video and audio are expected from a TV show of this age and although its nothing too flash when watched on a FULL HD TV, thankfully the Doctor Who story manages to save the day, especially the acting of Jon Pertwee and Katy Manning. As mentioned, where this release does shine is through the Special Features that include the making of the special effects, a fake global conspiracy report and some informative interviews. It's crammed full of Doctor Who titbits.
