Hurrah for industrial action!

Skye, Zavvi
20 July 2014
  • Summary: As I understand it, this was shot on film rather than videotape due to a strikes effecting production. Which turns out to have been rather lucky, as the Beeb later erased loads of tapes to re-use them, and this transfer is decent quality.

A great story now even better!

ZombieTwin2, Zavvi
16 June 2014
  • Summary: Spearhead From Space was the only Classic Doctor Who story to be shot entirely on 16mm film, due to industrial action, and as a result, is the only Classic Who story to be able to receive a high-definition upgrade to Blu-ray.

The Doctor is in the house

The Doctor, Zavvi
6 December 2013
  • Summary: This is a very good transfer on blu-ray! Picture and Sound are remastered and restored. The Doctor never looked better! If you got the DVD (like me) go and upgrade to this excellent blu-ray!

Dr Who, Spearhead From Space

CLAYTON65, play.com
5 August 2011
  • Conclusion: This is classic Who at it's very best. A new Doctor,a new decade and a new direction for the series.Add to that a cracking story by Robert Holmes with an all film 4 part story with action, intrigue, and even humour in the form of the hilarious poacher Sam Seeley and the scheming but inept hospital...

"Great. A episode for any Doctor Who fan"

Heather, Mighty Ape
26 July 2010
  • Summary: This introduces Jon Pertwee as the doctor and the Nestene Consciousness as the alien invaders. UNIT are called to investigate a mysterious stranger found outside a police box. Shot on outside locations due to a studio strike at the BBC it has a refreshing feel to it.

great Jon Pertwee debut story - rather poor DVD

HumanLeaguefan, play.com
10 April 2008
  • Conclusion: Writer Robert Holmes certainly got the Pertwee era off to a great full colour start with "Spearhead From Space", Jon looks suitably dashing, great to see the Brigadier and Liz Shaw also debuting in a story that, due to the way it has been filmed has a rather atypical feel to it.

Top notch!

WelshAdam, play.com
5 January 2008
  • Conclusion: Spearhead From Space jumpstarted a whole new era for Doctor Who. Not only did it open season 7 of the classic series but it was the first serial to be shown in colour, introduced the late great Jon Pertwee as the Third Doctor and Caroline John as Liz Shaw.
