Review & #Giveaway - Doctor Who: The Sensorites


SYNOPSIS:

The First Doctor (William Hartnell), Ian, Barbara and Susan land on a spaceship orbiting a distant and mysterious world, where a human crew lies frozen somewhere between life and death. The planet is the Sense-Sphere, home of the Sensorites, beings of immense intelligence and power. Unable to leave, the Doctor and his companions must deduce the Sensorites’ intentions: are they friendly, hostile, or frightened? And what is the deadly secret at the heart of the Sense-Sphere? This DVD collects all six episodes of Doctor Who story number 7, which originally aired in 1964.


Bonus features include:

Audio commentary, with actors William Russell (Ian), Carole Ann Ford (Susan), Joe Greig (Second Sensorite), Martyn Huntley (First Human), Giles Phipps (Second Human), director Frank Cox, designer Raymond Cusick and make-up designer Sonia Markham

MY THOUGHTS:

I watched Doctor Who: The Sensorites the other day and found it to be extremely entertaining.  I have been a fan of the science-fiction genre for as long as I can remember.  As a child, I used to love it when my dad would be home on leave from his job with the Navy.  We would have marathons and view different science-fiction movies and television shows.

Doctor Who is one of my favorite shows because you never know what will happen.  The Sensorites is an essential piece for Doctor Who fans.  The commentary offers extra information and the featurette is quite interesting.
