Rate: "The Edge of Destruction"

Post by Patrick on Mon Mar 12, 2012 10:59 am

We come to our third story of the inaugural season of Doctor Who, and this is something of a Ship-In-A-Bottle story, with everything happening inside the TARDIS. What did you think? Did 'Edge' have an edge? Or did it go over the cliff?

The wheels fell off the show, at this point. I think that, heady with the success of the previous months and giddy with the realisation that the whole shebang had made it to a third story without being laughed off the screen, the production went mad.

My opinion is that the story goes from odd to brilliant to bizarre to a bit poo, but there are too many moments of near or sheer genius in a two episode bottle show for it to be anything less than a 4/5.

Happily, everyone had calmed down and got a grip by the next one. Brief, but glorious.

I like a good bottle episode. Sometimes this one felt like it was drinking from said bottle but I still found it rather entertaining. 4/5.

I'll second Zoltar's sentiments. This was experimental television at it's most fun.
