Dr. Who: Web Planet

Starring the illustrious William Hartnell as this incarnation of the good doctor, The Web Planet is a baffling experience to watch. Filmed originally back in 1965, this was a time when Dr Who sets were at their most hokey and the quality of acting left a bit to be desired. 

Some would say that this was part of the groundwork for what would later be fleshed out storytelling and a greater Dr. Who experience. Serialised in itís nature, The Web Planet simply dragged on a bit too long for my liking around the second episode and could have been shortened considerably to maintain a bit of strength in its tale. Instead we wind up not caring quite as much as we could as we laugh at the way that the alien species bumble through their choreographed scenes. 

William Hartnell is more relaxed in the Docís role in this series as well, shaping the path for Dr.ís to come, adopting the approach of gentle eccentric (in action) as opposed to cold and calculating. 

The extras are the real reason to get this flick as they are of the same high standards as the rest of these delightful Dr. Who discs in the series.
