Unearthly Child – predictable and depressing

radio-times-unearthly-child-advertThanks to Clayton Hickman for tweeting the first ever Guardian review for Doctor Who episode An Unearthly Child  (aka 100,000 BC). To say reviewer Mary Crozier was unimpressed is an understatement and the Guardian themselves brought the subject up with not quite an apology some 48 years later: Doctor Who: Guardian reviewer unimpressed by first episode.

guardian-review-of-unearthly-childYou can read the original review above or on the Guardian’s website: Doctor Who from the archive: William Hartnell, the first Doctor and this article goes on to strike a better balance.

Who’d be a reviewer?!
