WO has the cover.

Not the best IMO. In fact the worst offering for quite a while.

Agreed, it actually gave me a headache looking at that cover, which looks somewhat tacky and over the top.

One of my favourite Tom stories, but why give it such
an awful cover? Sad

It's not the worst I've seen, but not the best either.

They all seem to be pretty similiar don't they? Shame really because they could make some really nice covers if they put a bit of thought into it.

Remember this one?



They have improved a hell of a lot imo. And at least they do have a consistency with the circular/triangular theme, but Masque looks only half finished.

Mine arrived this morning.
I must admit i've never been overly fussed about this story. Definitinely my least favourite of the Hinchcliffe/Holmes golden era.

Done the main docu which was alright, and the 'Bigger on the Inside' documentary about the Tardis interior was interesting. But beware the god-awful 'Beneath the Masque' spoof, written and performed by Gareth 'Bullfrog' Roberts, and Clayton Fucking Dickhead. Rolling Eyes
The words infantile and imbecilic don't even come close. If watched in company expect heavy sighs all round.

I made it less than half-way through that. They actually paid money for this shit? Couldn't they put it towards animating lost episodes?

I think Gatiss' thing on the Green Death gave them the wrong idea, some things creep onto the dvds that are a bit BBV

The cover looks a bit like Underworld & the Time Monster's

I like MoM's plot-an allegory of science versus superstition.
