purplecat: The Tardis (Doctor Who)
The Seeds of Death was one of the first Doctor Who episodes I owned, on betamax no less. I had assumed therefore that Tame Layman would have seen it, since I certainly had the old betamax tapes lying around for a long time and had a vague idea that at some point we'd either transferred them to VHS or acquired one of my parents Betamax machines to watch them.

Apparently not however.

I think he quite enjoyed it )

It's easy to see why this particular Patrick Troughton was picked for an early video release, although it has to be acknowledged there weren't a lot of complete stories to choose from. While its pacing is distinctly sixties it isn't too langurous and the story has an interesting premise and engaging supporting characters.
