Masque of MadragoraBy Kerengrego (1 review) from St Albans , 07 Mar 2010
[Highly rated reviewer]Fond memories of this from 1977. But it hadn't worn well - creaky, ilogical, with some seriously hammy acting; and even the locations weren't that well used. Compares to later in the same season (Deadly Assassin, Robots of Death) unfavourably.
What you'd expect from 2EntertainBy pferreira1983 (2 reviews) , 12 Apr 2011As usual 2Entertain do a great job of restoring this 1970s Tom Baker serial. Picture and sound quality is fine and the extras are what you'd expect from a Doctor Who DVD release. Personal bonus features highlights include a documentary exploring the Tardis interior design throughout the decades as well as a surprisingly enjoyable audio commentary with an unusually enthusiastic Philip Hinchcliffe. Watch out for the bit where he and Baker probe the set designer to find out who his favourite Doctor is. Great stuff and a solid DVD title from the DW range.
A Nondescript MasqueBy a customer from Yorkshire , 07 Sep 2010Masque is definitely not one of the gems of Classic 'Who' but it is a serviceable story; it's one of Tom Baker's after all. However, Philip Hinchliffe's justification for using Portmeirion as a location surely ranks with JNT's insistence on taking Colin Baker's Doctor to Spain for 'The Two Doctors'. It neither adds nor detracts from the story, but they have to dress the set so much to hide the garish colours that they might as well have stayed closer to home and spent some more money on the effects which, even for this era of the show, are ropey at best.
