The Doctor must convince the monks that not only is he not their enemy, but the real foe –and the power controlling the Yeti –is living amongst them. One of the big surprises of revisiting Troughton’s time on Doctor Who is the way the show could slide into pantomime, particularly in some of the performances of the supporting cast, and there’s no doubt that the scenes that I found terrifying as a child now have a “look-out-behind-you” quality that comes with the series surfing the camp zeitgeist of the 1960s.

Having last been there three hundred years ago, he is astonished to find the community of monks and lamas divided by conflict.Perhaps this isn’t helped by the lack of any incidental music, not to mention that the animation inevitably lacks the nuance of the live-action performances.

Most of the original 1967 master recordings of the six-part adventure 'The Abominable Snowmen' were lost soon after the programmme's original tranmission. Brand Spanking New From Reputable UK Company With 30 Years Experience In Retail, Please Note Not All Our New Items Are Shrink Wrapped.

This helps unify the various textures and designs, a pleasure after the spaceship interior in Galaxy 4, which seemed to me decorated by an explosion in an MFI showroom.
