This DTV follow-up to 1971 Doctor Who “The Daemons” starts promisingly: Miles Richardson is excellent as a broken UNIT veteran who stole an occult book, and the atmosphere is effectively spooky. Then a “ghost” turns out to be a time traveller carting a ton of who-cares exposition. Plus the climactic face-off between the Brigadier’s daughter and some bad CGI is as corny as that of the story which inspired it.
Extras A widescreen version, retrospective, and slide show; six old featurettes.
