Latter-day UNIT Adventures in Tom's Time

Postby ThetaSigma on December 6th, 2011, 2:33 am

PLease rate the following Tom UNIT stories

Robot
Terror of the Zygons
The Android Invasion
The Seeds of Doom


My favorite with the Brig is Terror of the Zygons and without would be The Android Invasion, as you still had familiar UNIT faces appear in it.

All those stories are for me from the golden age of classic Dr Who. Impossible to pick one above another.

Wow, that is difficult if not impossible.

The closest I can come is to say that The Android Invasion is my least favourite of the four, though it's still good. The other three are pretty much perfect Tom era.

I expected it would be a tough choice among the four, but still I have to comment that, as a child, The Seeds of Doom was my least favorite as I had problems eating lunch after viewing it. Seems funny now but there you have it. Robot is ok but too much of a Pertwee era carbon copy IMO. A good four-parter still all the way but Tom had not started the gothic golden age of the series yet. I like Terror of the Zygons as it is a little dark. But not dark enough to keep me from eating! :lol:

I'd go with 'Robot' and 'Zygons' as my favorites.

The other two, while good stories, hardly count as UNIT stories, as UNIT's part in both is practically a cameo.

Yes, but at that point we take what we can get, no? Lol Seriously for just a minute if I may be so bold, I just found out Zygons/Android Invasion will BOTH be released sometime next year, not just The Android Invasion which of course gets its US/UK release in January. So cool. :D
