Class Of Who: Vengeance on Varos
An eight-year-old's journey into Classic Who.
The Fan Can: So, what did you think of Vengeance on Varos?
Lizzie: I got a bit bored of it. But it was good.
No, it was bad! I didn't really like it. I thought it was boring.
What did you find boring?
Well, it's that thing where, you watch it, and the alien is not that bad. His face, it doesn't look alien at all. It looks completely human.
I dunno. He was very small and had green skin.
I know. But that was just a dwarf playing him. You could see his face and it's exactly like a human face. That monster isn't bad at all, it's only his people that are really unhappy! I didn't think that was very good at all.
Can you tell me what the story was about?
It's about Sil trying to execute loads and loads of people.
Were there any bits you liked?
There were no bits I liked. I didn't like it, so there are no bits that I liked. And secondly, Sil looked like Jabba the Hutt. And Jabba the Hutt eats the same kind of food as him.
What did you think of Peri? Did you like her more than the last time you saw her?
She's like a person who doesn't listen to other people when they're trying to give you instructions. When the Doctor was gone she just walked away! She got into trouble and became a prisoner. So she wasn't listening to the Doctor very much in that. She wasn't paying attention.
What about her appearance?
I think she should have long hair. She'd look way better with long hair.
You didn't like Colin Baker much the last time you saw him. Has he grown on you?
Nah. His clothes are too colourful. He needs to have colourful clothes like this [points at her own clothes]. These are not colourful. I think he wants himself to look like a rainbow! He looks more like a clown.
Do you think he just wants to be noticed?
Yes. I think he wants to get noticed as a circus guy or something!
Was there anything that could have made it better?
If the alien could slime everywhere.
Was there anything exciting in it? Like when Peri changed into the bird?
I think it was a parrot. I thought she was going to stay like that forever. Then she'd be able to fly, like an angel.
