The Unwilling Warriors
27 May 2020 | by guswhovianSee all my reviews

The Sensorites board the spaceship, and the Doctor must find a way to stop them.

"The Unwilling Warriors" doesn't really advance the plot much in 25 minutes, but it's very entertaining. Our first look at the Sensorites, after one first appeared in a great cliffhanger, is of two of them standing on each other's feet!

The show definitely shows its original educational premise here, with the Doctor and Ian having a lengthy discussion about molybdenum. Hartnell is on top form, and Carole Ann Ford is less annoying than usual.
