The foundation stone for all that was to come. The template from which the legend was cast.

Nuff said.

^ What Sid said.

You have to admire how ambitious they were. The Web Planet is a good example of that.

Exactly. The Web Planet would give a modern day producer and his team a massive headache - for them to have succeeded in making a story as good as they did, when they did is nothing short of astounding.

5/5
Yep- what Sid said.

The template for everything that followed, blessed with the brilliant casting of Hartnell, Russell and Hill.

Took me a while to 'get' this era, but with my recent rediscovery of it, definitely one of my favourites.

Still not perfect, so 4 point something out of 5.

This was still in the time when Britain believed geniuses lived in sheds and invented stuff that did astounding things. For all that it was impossible, the premise of the show was somehow likely, and it was made by the sort of people who looked at a requirement and didn't ever consider that it couldn't be done.

Every element of the show, from the bizarre screech of the theme music to the occasionally deeply unsympathetic lead character, should have made it fail. And yet here we are.

Lightning, bottle. Bottle, lightning.

Ah-haha.
