Tired is a word that will come to mind as you watch TIME-FLIGHT. The actors look tired, the sets look tired, the pacing, lighting, effects and pretty much everything else in this story all looks to be at the breaking point (money was tight, and partial sets draped with black cloth are common) and at times past it. Just looking at the actors expressions you can see just how much effort it is taking them to struggle through the scenes without either sighing, laughing or simply falling asleep (seriously - I think there's a moment on screen where Sarah Sutton nods off of for about 15 seconds). But, they manage to make it through and for their effort alone TIME-FLIGHT is saved from being a complete waste of time to something only a collector would love and own. It's true, while TIME-FLIGHT is not the single worst story of DOCTOR WHO, it does come close to touching bottom. As for the story itself, it really feels like a recycle from the Second Doctor's THE FACELESS ONES, missing planes, missing passengers and an alien threat from beyond and that's about it. But, up until it all goes wrong, the first episode actually has a air of mystery that is given strength by the use of locations filmed at Heathrow Airport itself. For a few moments DOCTOR WHO moves into the "feet solidly on the ground" QUATERMASS arena, but shortly after that it loses this footing and slips right into outright fantasy and a troubled mess. Unfortunate. But, while the story may leave you wanting, the extras help to fill that void. Commentary between Davidson, Sutton, Fielding and Saward is a lot of fun and as always the off the cuff (and often cutting) remarks by the three stars are always tart, adult and often very funny. There is little love for TIME-FLIGHT from all involved here, but the process is both respected and lamented as they simply did not have the time or the money. MOUTH ON LEGS gives us some sit down time with Janet Fielding about her time as Tegan and while a lot of fun, it must be said that some of these stories are now about as old as TIME-FLIGHT itself. While you won't mind hearing some of them again, you will wish they had taken the time to break the surface tension and really mix it up and even mention (at least once) that while Fielding may have given up acting, she has not given up on Tegan, appearing with Davidson in a BIG FINISH audio drama called THE GATHERING. JURRASIC LARKS and the OUTTAKES are always favorites of mine, being able to see behind the scenes as it's all happening is very entertaining, insightful and sometimes scary (really, when the BBC says LIGHTS OUT at 10:00pm they mean lights out!, also, feel the pain as Matthew Waterhouse struggles to get ONE LINE right in his cameo). TEXT COMMENTARY is tight and worth the time spent reading. In the end TIME-FLIGHT is for the tried, true and blue fans of DOCTOR WHO. Neo-Fans of the new series will be perplexed and hopelessly lost, but for us old TIME FLIERS it could be worse, but not by much.
