The Caves of Androzani
I forgot alot about this and/or I've never fully watched all of this. I guess at the time I was bored by the old Doctor/girl from Earth thing and Davison overall pissed me off or rather his Doctor did. It looks great. The planet looks great, Davison seems to have a green lining on his inside shirt, he even looks different, his hair is straighter or something; Peri is okay in this and not too bad.
What doesn't look great is the city outside Morgus's window. It looks like a painting and I had to figure out if it was meant to be a painting, a mural, or the city through his windows but no matter, the rest of the set looks great. He's a real baddie though as is almost everyone else in this.
Sharez Jek: I'm not impressed. Okay, there's the leather...and yeah he is a bit scary but that laughing's gotta go. And his PHANTOM OF THE OPERA act doesn't quite grab me.
Everyone cites the cliffhanger as great but it also does not grab me. It's just sort of weird and strange and that is explained next time.
Nothing too bad here but again, DW seems to be aping BLAKE'S 7 with gun runners, lotsa deaths, and a lot of mean, self centered people and a lot of politics. Okay, ther'e is a place for that in DW.
I still don't know but I think that CAVES is far too over rated but I did enjoy watching this first episode. Only....I still kind of think about and long for the Tom Baker style...honestly.
