Vintage Doctor Who: Spearhead from Space

My last review fell apart but in the great British tradition I'm soldiering on. On suggestion this review was from the Third Doctor's (Jon Pertwee) tenure.

This episode was good, very good. My only problem with it is how much stuff it felt like was going on. There were a lot of stories happening all at once, and while they eventually came together, it felt very cluttered at some points. It would have been cleaner to omit certain details and maybe group some "like" scenes together as opposed to switching back and forth.  I also noticed some bumps in editing but that was more aesthetic. Overall this is still a relevant episode that has a very engaging plot…most of the time.    7/10 
Let me know what you think of this serial, while you are at it how about a suggestion for a future Vintage Who Review.
