    Script - Horror of Fang Rock Views: 846
     Monday, December 03 2007 @ 11:39 AM EST

    On yesterdays Antiques Roadshow (2nd Dec '07) here in the UK on BBC 1 a chap brought in an old 'shooting script' of a Tom Baker story 'Horror of Fang Rock'

    Because some had written on it - mainly on the back pages it had reuced its value by half I think - around 300 UKPs.

    Here's a screen capture:-

    I've said it in other threads, but I'll say it again: this is my favorite Who story (classic or new series). The setting is perfect to provide a feeling of true isolation, thus making it scarier, and the supporting cast does an excellent job with their characters. DW at its finest, imho.

    They've been mentioned, and appear in a Bernice Summerfield audio play, but not seen.

    I bet if it had been Tom Baker who had written on it, the value would have increased, not decreased.

    Good point Smile

    I watched it recently with low expectations as I recalled various people slating it over the years. But I ended up loving it. The only really dodgy bit was towards the end when the script writer realised he still had alot of characters to dispose of and no time left with which to do it. So he got them to all systematically leave the room in turn to get killed off.

    The Rutan special effect was a bit laughable too, but forgivable (ney, desirable) in classic Who.

    If half the art of survival is running away, the other half is knowing when to keep a straight face.

    (Episode title SPOILER ahead)

    Let's hope a better-realized version of the Rutans show up this year in Season Four's "The Sontaran Strategem"!

    We did not get any realizations, only a mention if I recall correctly now. Though we could have really used one in the story The Unicorn and The Wasp, I thought.
