On the Occasion (part 8)

The Doctor Who marathon continues tonight at 6:40 PM PST with The Ambassadors of Death (full color episodic.) I will freely admit that at first I was not too impressed with this story, but over the years I’ve grown to appreciate it as a truly impressive story. I actually have come to love the stories where the aliens are not the baddies. Actually no one is really a baddie (except maybe for Reegan, who’s just a commen thug) but just misguided, deluded in the belief that they are doing the “morally correct” thing (hey, it kind of sounds like recent reality…) Where this story falls down is the same problem with the longer stories – padding!! 3.5/5.

More, as they say, to come – in later entries (namely Inferno…)
