“An excellent new restoration of an already excellent serial. Lovely direction on a production that clearly overspent on its budget. One of Michael Ferguson's finest hours as a director, with a lovely script (mostly) written by Malcolm Hulke. Last time this story was released it was on VHS in 2003 and I remember being astonished at the amount of restoration work that had gone into it even then. However, in 2003, Ralph Montagu's restoration team only felt able to restore roughly 50% of the serial back to its original colour. The rest of the tape remained in black and white. The chopping and changing between black and white and colour, actually wasn't as distracting as it sounds. However, now being able watch the whole story on DVD in full colour (as originally intended) really is so wonderful, that the VHS pales in comparison.A stunning restoration and a decent set of DVD extras too. Be sure to listen to commentary, with moving farewells from the now sadly departed, Caroline John and Nicholas Courtney.”

“A classic example of an early Pertwee story, Ambassadors of Death has all the gritty earthbound realism that Terrance Dicks and Barry Letts were aiming for with their new incarnation of the doctor. At times this serial feels more like a 70's suspense / horror film than children's entertainment.”
From: Christopher Kane
“A gripping mystery, action and adventure story. Well written, directer and acted. One of the better Doctor Who stories.”
