    Again, I would love to see just one episode of this back at least.

    The censored clips that they found in Australia are nice though.

    This one always struck me as a bit silly. It's a really scary concept (although I can't imagine the Macra were well portrayed given the budget and effects available) but much of the story seems to come across as more of a silly romp than anything seriously scary. Maybe that's just the novelisation which is all I really remember of this one. I have seen the reconstruction a long time ago but it obviously didn't make much impact on my brain.
