181: UNIT: The Coup

THE COUP (2004, The Brigadier & Isis, UNIT)
This is a bold move – a series based around UNIT. But it works, oh it works. Nicholas Courtney gives as fine a performance as he ever gave in the 70s on telly, and the Silurians are a welcome returning enemy. Realised and directed perfectly, this is an intriguing new UNIT. 9/10. 50 words.


NEXT, it's the good old Tennant era again, with crazy rain, a new companion and some seriously scary biker boys. And remember, if you ever get thirsty when reading the review, make sure you've got your little straw...
