Aztec Attraction

One of the 1st Doctors adventures...

Landing in a Temple in Ancient Mexico, the crew are cut off from the TARDIS, when a one way door closes, trapping them. Barbara is mistaken by the Aztecs as a reincarnated Priest! Realising that the Spanish will be arriving in the next few years, she tries to 'civilize' them by trying to abolish the culture of human sacrifice; ignoring the Doctor's warning's about interfering in history.

However, her attempts make her an enemy to Tloxtol, the Priest of Sacrifice, who decides to use Susan in his plots to break her power, and tricks Ian into a fight to the death!

In the meantime, the Doctor has to find a way back into the TARDIS, before they all end up sacrificed...

This is a good story, with excellent costumes, and decent scenery. The plot is well written, and shows the futility of trying to change the future. Obviously, as this story is from the 1st Doctor's tenure, it is in black and white, but I don't believe that this detracts from the viewing experience. William Hartnell shows his excellent acting skills, especially when he is trying to persuade Barbara about the futility of interfering; first by being frustrated with her lack of understanding, but also by becoming oddly sympathetic. Well worth the price, and should be enjoyed by viewers of all ages.


It's one of the most interesting stories I've seen.

What lets it down is the quality. If it had been fully restored it would have got 5 stars.
