Doctor Who: Aztecs, The - Special Edition (DVD)

The TARDIS arrives in fifteenth century Mexico inside the tomb of one-time Aztec High Priest Yetaxa. The travellers become cut off from the ship when they explore the temple outside and the tomb door closes behind them. Barbara is proclaimed by the High Priest of Knowledge, Autloc, as Yetaxa's divine reincarnation. However, she incurs the enmity of the High Priest of Sacrifice, Tlotoxl, when - against the Doctor's advice - she attempts to use her new-found authority to put an end to the Aztec practice of human sacrifice.

Doctor Who: The Aztecs--Special Edition is one of the famed history-based episodes from the early '60s (this one's from 1964) during the tenure of William Hartnell as the Doctor. The crew of the TARDIS finds itself transported back to 15th-century Mexico during the reign of the Aztecs. Not only that, the TARDIS plops down inside a sealed Aztec tomb. The crew members are safe and eventually escape the tomb--but because they escaped, the Aztecs believe that Barbara (Jacqueline Hill) is a powerful goddess. Barbara takes preeningly to her new role and hopes to change history by preventing a human sacrifice. But can history be changed--even by the Doctor? This packed disc contains terrific extras pertaining to this episode, including a rollicking commentary and great features on creating the Aztec kingdom on a budget. But what most Doctor Who fans will love is the inclusion of one of the episodes previously thought to be lost, Galaxy 4. It's impressive how the producers were able to reconstruct Galaxy 4 since a complete episode hasn't been found. So the editors and producers stitched together stills, pieces of the episode, and very satisfying animation to tell the story, which is a more traditional futuristic interplanetary adventure. The extras also include some random treasure troves, like a peek at the empire of Doctor Who toys, many of which are extremely collectible by now. Doctor Who: The Aztecs--Special Edition is a must for any fan of Doctor Who. --A.T. Hurley
