Tread Perilously — Doctor Who: The Web Planet

whoTread Perilously continues its return to Doctor Who as Erik and Justin face the First Doctor’s six-part adventure “The Web Planet” and almost crack under the pressure. The Doctor, Barbara, Ian and Vicki arrive on Vortis, a planet overrun by the ant-like Zarbi. There is also an invading force of bee people known as the Menoptera, but who are the real rulers of the planet? And why does it take so long for anything to happen?

Justin and Erik discuss the problems of the six-part story, William Hartnell‘s extra-strength flubbing and the way everyone seems to let the show down during this story. It’s an extra dose of difficult black & white Doctor Who that cannot transcend the era in which it was made.
