Tristan Davies travels back in time to an era of naff science fiction

At least the British serve up controlled super-lucent emissions and anti-matter accelerators with some wit — the saving grace of Dr Who. The Three Doctors (BBC, U, £10.99), which reunited William Hartnell, Patrick Troughton and Jon Pertwee, is deeply embarrassing -- they take on the renegade time lord Omega and his antimatter blobs (imagine snowmen wearing chocolate biscuit chain-mail) and the final battle takes place on what were clearly the original road excavations for the M25.

Thankfully the three time travellers had been around long enough — and their individual characters were sufficiently well-scripted — for them to be able to skip engagingly through this hokum without any unpleasant anti-matter sticking to them.
