This remains wonderful. Silly in places, but, oh...you know. It's got a few firsts and wizzy direction and...it's just great, really.
My Unalike had heard Graeme Garden's Monk on the Big Finish audios (sob...go listen...), which I'd forgotten when she blurted, "Oh! It's the Meddling Monk!" and tolerated my recantation of Peter Butterworth's career (this and some Carry Ons. Probably a load of theatre). Sometimes you get so used to thinking others see Who as 'now' and 'then' that it's a surprise when they join all the dots. And when they like how Hartnell made it great.

A wonderful historical story. It's serious, yet seems light hearted at times. Great cast, and superb acting by all. I would defintley reccomend you to watch this story. I gave it 9/10.
