Bloody terrible is all I can say, and i thought Enlightenment SE was bad.

They took a reasonably solid Davison 4 parter and totally butchered it, including one of the most pathetic, amateur 'fan vids' I've ever seen at the start, as a prologue ...

If you haven't seen this monstrosity that is Planet of Fire SE (how I envy you Very Happy) put this on, and even just watch the opening prologue to see how bad it is.

Oh and the SFX of the lava flowing as well is pretty dire ...

Beats me why Dan Hall commissioned this unnecessary project, and vetoed a SE version of Silver Nemesis (that story was one which was enhanced by the deleted scenes in it, IE the VHS version)

I'm happy enough with the SN disc, but yes, it does begin to look a bit suspect when they can't at least just bang the original VHS SE on there but they can do self-indulgent toss like that.

Why was the extended "Silver Nemesis" vetoed from the DVD release?

It's a shame because those extra scenes add greatly to the story and confirm to me what an awful script editor Andrew Cartmel was.

It was truly dreadful. Horribly edited, with the lush, gorgeous score excised and an amateurish pre-credits sequence tacked on.
