    Aww, I got my own tag.

    I agree there's some great stuff in The Two Doctors. It's one of Holmes' wittiest scripts and the sluggishness is largely down to Peter Moffatt's "direction". What I think's interesting about the racist elements is that unlike "Tomb" or "Meglos", where it's largely semiotic, here they're actually part of the script.

    I also feel like "Revelation" is Saward's own "Carnival of Monsters", where he finally found himself as a writer and started ignoring all the genre rules in favour of what interested him. Pity he left so shortly after, and under such awful circumstances, because I'd love to have seen what Saward 2.0 would crank out.
