The Talons of Weng-Chiang is the sixth and final serial of the 14th season of the British science fiction television series Doctor Who , which was first broadcast in six weekly parts on BBC1 from 26 February to 2 April Written by script editor Robert Holmes and directed by David Maloney , The Talons of Weng-Chiang was also the final serial to be produced by Philip Hinchcliffe , who had worked on the series for three seasons. One of the most popular serials from the series' original run on television, The Talons of Weng-Chiang has continued to receive acclaim from reviewers and it has been repeatedly voted one of the best stories by fans. Despite this, criticism has been directed towards the serial's stereotypical representation of Chinese characters and an unconvincing giant rat featured in the story. The Doctor and Leela arrive in London so that Leela can learn about the customs of her ancestors, specifically the musical theatre of Victorian England. On their way to the Palace Theatre, the Doctor and Leela encounter a group of Chinese men who have apparently killed a cab driver.

The lowest-priced brand-new, unused, unopened, undamaged item in its original packaging where packaging is applicable. Packaging should be the same as what is found in a retail store, unless the item is handmade or was packaged by the manufacturer in non-retail packaging, such as an unprinted box or plastic bag. See details for additional description. I enjoyed seeing it. The interviews were great. The episode was fun to watch. I recommend it to tom baker fans.
