On the Occasion (part 14)

The 40th anniversary Doctor Who marathon continues tonight at 7:20 PM PST with the Mutants (episodic version.) One of the more maligned stories of the Pertwee era, but with this viewing I have come to regard it as a much underrated story. Sure, some of the acting is abysmal and that seems to detract from the over all production (as does the music for me.) Despite this, the story is a very good one – though it could, as I always maintain, be shortened up a tad. The location work is also well done, and the CSO is not as bad as other stories. 3/5

Since I got another late start this evening, it looks like I’ll have to continue this tomorrow night (but I may be able to get two stories out of the way.)
