"Doctor Who: Battlefield"

I'm into the Sylvester McCoy years and I have to say I don't like the music or the special effects much at all. The music is too high pitched and tinny. And explosions and special twinkling lights are more cheesy then the old stuff. Although there is a very good rubber masked villain in this one. I mean the rubber mask and dental appliance are up to modern standards. The character is still pretty lame.

I didn't like Ace much in "Remembrance of the Daleks" but she is growing on me.

"Battlefield" is an Arthurian story with aliens whose technology looks like magic. Although the Doctor actually says that "Any sufficiently advanced magic is indistinguishable from technology". (The inverse of Clarke's third law)

Coincidentally, having insisted in my previous post that "all movies should have multiracial casts and strong female characters" it was amusing to see that this story had both. That is why I love the BBC and Science Fiction.
