The Doctor: Have you ever thought what it’s like to be wanderers in the Fourth Dimension? Have you? To be exiles? Susan and I are cut off from our own planet – without friends or protection. But one day we shall get back. Yes, one day…

Story Code: C1.1.
Production Code: A.
Story Number: 1.
Countdown week: 39…

Episode 1 – what a fantastic start to Doctor Who. Rewatching it, I’d seen the story before so knew the magic doesn’t last for 4 eps though.100,000 BC review

Ep 2 has the most verbose cavemen ever. Ep 3 though… Intriguing. Never noticed this before, but this ep is the original template for DW captured/escape/captured runaround.

Minuses, verbose cavemen and the plot of Eps 2, 3, and 4. Pluses, good lines, camerawork, and the pure magic of Episode 1. More interesting though when viewed as a companion piece to the next serial which features another tribe and more strife…

Rating: 4/5
