Quite possibly the worst doctor who story in any medium, sexist and transphobic.

I really like the keys of marinus, I think the reason I enjoy it so much is because when I was a child I grew up watching a lot of "Quest" based shows and cartoons where the main characters would be searching for an item or a small piece of a large item before the bad guys could find it.

The acting is...solid all round, nothing spectacular but sometimes you can only do so much with the material you're given and while I do like this story I am not blind to the fact it is quite weak in terms of plot.

William Hartnell and Jacqueline Hill both deserve special praise however, with Jacqueline being excellent in episode two where she plays a Barbara that is on her own and on the run and William Hartnell having the strongest material in episode 5 where the doctor must try and acquit Ian.

All in all, a vastly underrated story.

I love Talons of weng-chiang, it's one of my favourite Tom Baker stories and it has an excleent supporting cast and atmosphere, the fact that two of the characters in this story have their own spin off speaks for it's self.

I would give it a ten out of ten but I can't do that for one reason: The racism is so blatant and offensive that it does cost it a mark.

The Mega is an excellent piece of quintessential Pertwee goodness with fantastic narration from Katy Manning and Richard Franklin, excellent monsters balanced with an almost James bond plot that makes for an exciting adventure that feels true to the era of the time.
