One of my personal favorite Tom Baker stories, Image of the Fendahl, is coming to DVD in the UK this April.

Co-starring Louise Jameson as Leela, this story was classic Doctor Who’s most direct stab at outright horror, featuring the Fendahl, an ancient monster from Timelord myth which ate life itself.

One of the things that made this story so scary for me as a child was that it was one of the few times where we actually see the Doctor truly afraid, as encountering the Fendahl plays on his childhood fears from the stories he heard of them when he was young.
