A Great Look At What Could Have Been

Although neither story is exactly 5 star material, they both are great for what they are. The first was definitely the better of the 2. I understand the criticism for the sexism in the story, but I can ignore it since no one with the tiniest shred of common sense can not know to expect extreme sexism from a story written in the 60s about women taking over and being as chauvinistic as men were in the 50s.

The second story sounded like it had potential, but I just couldn't get into it beyond the curiosity of a Dalek episode that never got filmed. I wish I had known before listening that it was the pilot for a spin off type show that was intended for American audiences. I would have listened eventually, but I would have been in no rush if I had known.

Frazer Hines performance as the Doctor is so perfect it makes the first story much more enjoyable than it otherwise might have been. I had to laugh, because in the extras when he talked about how he was trying to do the scene where the Doctor escapes, I had actually pictured the same scene in my head that he said he was trying to emulate.

Two fun romps into what could have been!<br />

Two unused scripts from the 1960's Doctor Who canon. the first, a rejected 2nd Doctor story and the second the, sadly, unmade American Dalek series pilot from the same period. Both are well worth experiencing!

Narrated excellently

The narrators are two of the original companion actors, that also reprise their roles. One of them does a brilliant job as a mimic of the Second Doctor.

No doctor in third story.

For those of us who did not live through the original Doctor who series and have only seen the surviving episodes, Sara Kingdom is not very well known. Thus, the third story in this set that only had her character and no doctor is a let down. Plus, the third story has a cliff hanger ending. Maybe those who saw the original series know what happened next, but for the rest of us...

Disappointing

While this has undoubted curiosity factors historically for fans of Doctor Who it suffers from antiquated sexual politics in the main story and an overly mannered central performance in the second on. PRISON IN SPACE, adapted from an unused script from the 2nd Doctor era, seems to be a male reaction to the feminist politics of the mid to late sixties and would have been thought wrong by many at the time of broadcast. If you can look past this it's a mildly funny farce with some decent performances from the cast. THE DESTROYERS is also adapted from an original script, this time from Terry Nation's pilot for an American Dalek series. I enjoyed the story but the narration fell short of the usual standards and was very clunky. Overall its hard to recommend but die hard fans will probably need to hear it!
