      its is a good one however it does have some pacing problems but apart from that its not bad.
      i wouldn’t call it a classic though like some people do.

    Got Face of Evil for my birthday, loved it apart from the corky laser effects.

    What a great story, one of the best of Tom Baker’s I have ever seen (and I have over eighteen of his stories on DVD).

    Looking forward to getting this Vengeance on Varos special edition, I was reminded of it today when I looked over my collection and saw the “odd” colin baker image on the spine of the old DVD, it stands out because they never used that image again ! :O
