The Aztecs The Reign of Terror

The Sensorites was the prelude to Planet of the Ood seventh serial of Season 1, and God was it slow. Almost as slow as Marco Polo.


The TARDIS lands on a spaceship with a crazy guy and a paranoid chick who claim that they're being attacked by scurry ayyyy lmaos.

Of course it turns out that the aliens aren't really that scary and they just want the humans to leave them alone. There's also some dumb political intrigue plot in the second half.


It's awful. Based Cheddarcheese and Bosombae are out of commission for like half of the story, which always sucks. Whenever anybody goes "Hey, I should watch all of Doctor Who starting with Hartnell!", they almost always drop that desire when they get to this story.

"...And then I bashed 'is fookin' 'ead in."
