The Aztecs

After wading through what seems like a million episodes of The Keys of Marinus, The Aztecs is a welcome shot in the arm. Its set design is at the level of a school play and it seems to have been shot in a small cupboard. However the script, costume design and acting are truly superb. Hartnells romance seems touchingly real and, for a change, The Doctor is IN this story!The fight scenes are unfortunately poor and I am afraid I cannot buy Ian as a rival to a civilisations greatest warrior. Gripes aside honestly think that the Aztecs is the best that Series One has had to offer yet.

Now to rub it in…. The (bloody) Sensorites.
