DVD: Doctor Who: The Beginning: Disk 3

It was time for another one of these this weekend, so we watched the third and final disk from this three disk set. This has the story The Edge of Destruction which is the third story every produced. It was a short two episode “filler” story.

And it was very odd. And it had the actors trying to act odd. Which just came off as bad acting. It is 100% set within the TARDIS and with just the four main characters talking to each other and acting dazed, confused and paranoid.

It is pretty laughable. And not memorable really. Most of the other First Doctor episodes I’d at least heard enough about in the past to know what to expect. Not really true of this one. Sure, I’d seen it in episode guides and such, but I didn’t have any preconceived ideas coming in.

And going out, I’ll probably forget it pretty quickly, other than “that silly odd little story with no point”. I guess it did drive forward the relationship of the characters a little bit. A little bit. It also showed more rooms of the TARDIS than are generally seen. I guess that is a good thing.
