A bug's life!

The Web Planet is a bit odd. On one hand it is a great mixture of new monsters (and a lot of them too!), but on the other it is a poorly put-together piece. Several things instantly spring to mind (i.e. the Zarbi crashing into the camera, and the rubbish Larvi Guns), but overall the world of Vortis is done well.
Overall, The Web Planet is a mixed bag of goodness and rubbish.

but flawed. To our modern eyes this looks very silly but when it was made it was a brave attempt to pull it off. Some people will hate this but I really love it.

Episode Falls On Its Face

Aside from design...

Aside from the truly excellent looking Zarbi, the best design of the William Hartnell period of the show, and William's performance, this tale is just so very wooden and bland. The Animus looks very impressive too, but everything else about this tale is so dragging and forgettable in the extreme. One of the few terrible past stories. The Zarbi deserved more of a chance. They were a splendid creation, but just ended up in a totally lacklustre story. Sad indeed.
