Wonderful little story

A wonderful little story, with two very mischievous Time Lords (although we don't know that!!). It's a fresh change of story for the series and time suddenly becomes a way of getting the characters to a story - something which is used throughout afterwards..

To Verity Lambert. A wonderful funny story.

Best historical of the lot!

This is the best historical of all of Doctor Who, despite being the first in the series' 'pseudo-historicals'. The plot is well-written and holds together perfectly, the dialogue is witty and funny, and the fact that the Monk has a TARDIS is one of the all-time great Doctor Who cliffhangers!
The disc itself is alright, with a great commentary, a clearly rushed obituary for Verity Lambert, although it does work well. The little 'Lost 12 Seconds' featurette is great, and puts the missing sequence into context perfectly without making a song and dance out of things.
Overall, one of the best DVD releases so far.

The Time Meddler medal...

This tale is a comedic rest after the Chase. William Hartnell is on fine form, Peter Purves really gets into the role of Steven, and Maureen is great as usual as Vicki. The inclusion of Peter Butterworth is inspired, he's excellent as the Meddling Monk. The natives are interesting, although the vikings here are wonderfully stupid and spineless! The fight sequence is a bit flaccid, but this was the 1960s. This is a highly entertaining character piece, and Peter Butterworth dominates everything so very well indeed. A great historical piece.
