I've just watched this for the first time and I thought, since it is one of those things that is supposed (here in the UK, anyway) to be a seminal piece of television, that people might be interested in my thoughts. Also I have screencapped it and there will therefore be pictures, including familiar faces from Doctor Who. (It was made in 1970, so there were a few.)

You need only worry about spoilers if you don't know if Elizabeth I married someone or not, or who won in England vs the Spanish Armada and what became of Mary Queen of Scots etc. Or are worried about knowing who dies in the end. (Um. They all do...?)

This got very long, so I'm doing it in two installments.
In which people lose their heads, I fail to spot the Master, Count Grendel is quite lenient, Robert Hardy is difficult to get over, David Collings dies horribly and Glenda Jackson is magnificent )

And, wow, this is getting long. I shall break off here and return (once I have screencapped the final two eps) for the Spanish Armada with only one toy boat in sight, some unexpected action by HAVOC at the last minute, the COSTUMES and make-up (if you think I have neglected Elizabeth in my caps here, it is only because she will feature heavily then) and also my flippant response to the total absence of fanfic. (Yes, I know. Silly me.)

Hey, I spent some of my birthday money on this... and have made some icons. I couldn't help it (plus, yet again, Friday insomnia strikes, so I have little brain for writing). You will be relieved to hear there are none of Turlough in speedos.

There are also some extra I did last week for Vengeance on Varos. (Now that my skills have improved a bit.)
