Description

    The Doctor (Patrick Troughton) and his companions arrive on a human colony in the far flung future. The colony appears to be a giant recreational complex - a holiday camp for rest and relaxation. Everyone looks happy and carefree but all is not as it seems. The colony has been infiltrated and brainwashed by a race of giant parasitic crab creatures called the Macra. The Macra have only returned once since, 40 years later, coming face to face with the Tenth Doctor (David Tennant) and Martha Jones (Freema Agyeman).

    The 4 x 25 min missing episodes, which were originally part of Doctor Who’s (now mostly lost) fourth season, have been animated for the first time.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lacklustre Animation I have to admit I am disappointed with this effort from the BBC. The story itself is a perfectly good example of an early Patrick Troughton episode, but the animation of it was just lazy. The characters had all the articulation and flexibility I would expect from something made in the 1970's - not 2019. I found the reconstruction of the episodes from still photos to be the more interesting version to watch - and the characters moved only fractionally less than in the animated version. Recommended for fans of Patrick Troughton only.
